Question about 1991 Acura Legend
Here are the last week of events. My car blew a cooling system hose... I replaced it, as well as drained and refilled my coolant and water. Now, once in while my check engine light will come on, the thermometer shows my car getting hotter, and my RPMs go up. This will start about 10-15 minutes into the drive and then will stop only after about 10 minutes usually in the middle of the drive. If it were overheating wouldn't it become sluggish? I'm resetting the ECU codes right now by leaving my battery unconnected for 20 minutes. Maybe it's just a computer malfunction. Any ideas or diagnosis will help. Let me know if you need any more info. thanks guys
Did you bleed all the air out of the cooling system? It is critical that you do that or the cooling system wont work properly. Dont take that temp guage lightly, it is more reliable than you think. You will have serious damage if u continue to drive with high temps in the engine.
