1999 Honda crv running hot

I recently had my thermostate replaced on my 1999 honda crv due to taking 150 mile roadtrips to pa and the gauge was running hot......it did not resolve the problem.....now the gauge fluctuates between mid range and hot......but does not stay in the hot area....for more than a few minutes.....
my mechanic said I need a radiator flush and to to a head gasket repair treatment......just in case my head gaskets might have been effected due to lack of antifreeze in the radiator and the reserve...........will this ease the problem....took it to jiffylube they were not able to do this due to not being able to keep the car on their property for 24 hours...they told me they did not see the radiator fans turn on........another mechanic is saying it might be the radiator switch needs replacing.......of course I am taking it for a diagnostic next week...the car has over 120,000 miles on it

Hi i don't know what mechanic you went to but blown head gasket will cause the engine not to idle/run right. usually when you replace the thermostate you have to then run the car obviously with water in the radiator and crack the little screw where the thermostate is located. this will allow the car to release any trapped air in the lines and you may need to keep topping up the radiator. im not a mechanic but i know alot about cars. i came across this problem in my holden ute. it was running hot and that was why. too much trapped air. easiest way is too crack that screw and remove it. run the car while keeping an eye on the radiator water level you will see if there is air in there it won't squirt water out continuously once it does run continously turn the car off put the screw back in warning it will be quite hot retop te radiatior if need and you should be good too go. it solved the same problem i had. have fun cheers

WATER PUMP HAS A BUILT IN "WEEP HOLE" AT BOTTOM OF PUMP. YOU NORMALLY SEE SMALL SPOTS OF ANTI-FREEZE, BUT IF IT IS DRIVEN OFF THE TIMING BELT IT IS BEHIND PLASTIC COVERS. LOOK AT LEFT(DRIVERS) SIDE...WHICH IS FRONT OF ENGINE FOR DRIPPING FROM LOWER TIMING BELT COVER.

1997 Honda CRV temperature gauge spikes to Hot


You have to thank the Gauge that shuts down your engine when hot bec. it wont knock...you have to clean your radiator and see if the coolant inside it run through the radiator holes to the engine water jacket to make sure your engine will not over heat...For the fans, find the fan relay...it's under the hood in the fuse box...

My 99 odyssey's temp. gauge randomly bounces from normal to hot while driving or at a stand still. All my fluids are in the normal range and the car doesn't seem to be running rough.I checked under the...


I don't think it's the thermostat, so much, as the circuit for the temperature gauge which includes, wiring to the cts (coolant temperature sender), the cts itself, and the gauge. It's likely a wiring problem if it randomly bounces from normal to hot while driving the vehicle or standing still.

Do you I need to replace the thermostat on my 1999 Honda Accord as a preventative measure only?


No only if you have noticed a change in engine running temperature on gauge, colder or hotter than normal.
