comment How to test for radiator leaks?
Coolant is circulated between the engine bock and the cylinder head. The head gasket seals the block and head interface. While doing the pressure test if the head gasket has failed the coolant can be forced into the cylinder. The spark plugs are removed so you can observe the coolant in the cylinder.

comment Transmission not shifting from park
The release may be hidden under a small plastic cover. With a small flat blade screwdriver remove the small cover. Insert the screwdriver in the hole to release the shifter lock. Beware that the brake lights may not work. It may be worth checking for a blown fuse.

when it doesn't start can you hear the fuel pump run? The older Hondas are known to have fuel pump relay issues when hot.

They would work but don't crawl under it . Make sure you place them with the open side facing up.

comment Consequences of not fixing rusted body parts
Before putting any money into it bring it to a mechanic you trust. Ask him to put it on the lift and inspect the car. You want to determine if the rust has progressed beyond cosmetic concerns and into structural concerns. This can only be done by getting under it.

comment where is the 2003 Wiper Relay on a 2003 honda accord?
Just a comment because the info is from an unverified source. Look on the drivers side firewall near the brake booster.
