Mine was losing coolant in the cold MN winters and I solved the issue by tightening the water pump screws. Filled it up and haven't had another drip in years.

Thank you for your time spent I will keep an eye on coolant level the next weeks I took pictures and those of mileage that the refilling took place and if it keeps getting low I will go again to the dealer as it will be under warranty till February. I have planned vacations once back I will go long ride to test it... I will update if something comes up either from the ride or Honda... once again thank you for your replies..

You're welcome. Happy to lend a hand.

You're one of the lucky ones that gets away with the pump cover leaking. Most leaks are caused by a bent impeller shaft in the water pump. No amount of tightening will stop that leak.

hi to all,
i just realized there is no coolant and saw this post.
i went to see the screws you talk about and realize i can close the the same screw you did !!!
hopefully this will end that issue.

someone have any idea what is the reason for this screw left open?
there must be a reason why the mechanic open just this screw.
thanks
roy
