Question about 1992 Honda Accord
My car (Honda Accord 1992 LX 2.2L) blows air but not hot and winter is on the way. I observed that cooland hose comming from engine to heater is hot but the hose going out from heater to engine is almost cold. So I think its some thing to do with the heater core... Am I Right????
If so them can anybody tell or explain in detail even with picture if possible that how to replace the heater core.
you can email me at email@example.com
It's probably the valve in the cooling hose that lets coolant flow into your heater core. This is up against the firewall about 3/4 of the way down on the passenger side. When you switch the knob from warm to cool, you should be able to see the little "arm" on the hose move back and forth. You may need someone else to watch as you move the temperature knob back and forth.
Also, watch out for over heating (not due to the valve), because it could mean that you could need to replace your water pump and/or thermostat in the near future. If you haven't replaced your timing belt recently (or if you have) and didn't change the water pump at the same time (Honda recommended) Your water pump could be failing.
Odds are pretty good though that it's just where the cable connects to the valve. It may have rusted over time and stuck, or broke the end of the cable, or just need lubricating/bending back into place.
If this is not the case, then you may just have a clogged heater core and should have your coolant system thoroughally flushed in the near future. If none of these work, you may need to replace your heater core.
Drop me a line when you check these over and I'll see what I can come up with.
