 Description of the problem2006 honda civic with only 44,326 miles. Litterally a 6,000 mile a year driver. Driving down the street about 45 mph for about 5 minutes when i started smelling the sweet smell of coolant. Pulled over and saw that coolant was spurting out of an area south of the spark plugs about 6 inches down on the engine block. Filled it back up with coolant and made it home. No warning lights or temp increase until i made it home. If i were doing 70 on the highway, the heat and pressure would have blown it all out and my engine would have overheated. Looks like a cracked engine block with only 44k. Come to find out, that honda simply extended the warranty instead of doing a recall. Too bad us second owners didn't get the info.
