Question about 1996 Honda Accord
I have a '95 Honda Accord, Manual Transimisson that is overheating. It is good for 5 - 10 minutes of driving and then it steadily starts getting hot. Once the gauge hits the midpoint it quickly accelerates. It doesn't seem to be a matter of sitting at stop signs or stop lights when the problem arises and I notice no difference whether the heat is on or not. After a certain amount of driving the car just starts getting hot. I had a new radiator put in after a mechanic said the problem was that it was leaking. After that didn't work I replaced the thermostat with the help of my dad. That still didn't work and so I took it back to a mechanic and they said the radiator fan assembly wasn't working and so they replaced that. Still nothing has changed. So I have a new radiator, thermostat and fan assembly but the problem still persists. Also, there are no obvious leaks (I had a pressure test done) and I am not loosing coolant. There is no sign of oil in the coolant or water in the oil so I think I can count out a cracked head gasket. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Did the mechanic that said that the fans assembly didn't work check out the fan switch? it is a sensor like a temp sensor that switches the fan on and off when the temp goes up in the engine.
did the mechanic tell you that the fans was working now? can you hear the fan come on when the engine temp rises? if not , it could be the switch or if the fan worked after the mechanic replaced it, it could be a wiring problem. possible faulty ground.
