Question about 1996 Honda Accord
I have a '95 Accord LX, manual transmission that is overheating. It runs fine for 5 - 10 minutes then steadily starts getting hot. It's not a matter of sitting at stop signs or stop lights and I notice no difference whether the heat is on or not. It's simply if the car is running for a long enough time it starts to get hot. I had a new radiator put in because a mechanic said it was leaking. That didn't solve the problem so I changed the thermostat myself. That didn't work either so I took the car back to a mechanic. They diagnosed the problem as one of the fans not working so I had that replaced. Still, nothing has changed. In sumarry, I've had a new radiator, thermostat and fan put in and it has not solved the problem. I see no obvious leaks and I'm not losing coolant. Also, there is no sign of oil in the coolant or water in the oil. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Is your cooling fan kicking on when temp rises?Are you running antifreeze or just water?Possible calcium buildup in radiator or water pump not working at full potential.. I could be more helpful if more detail info was given....
