Question about 1996 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Car is overhaeating

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.

    Sorry for responding so late this. I in fact have still not resolved the problem. I changed out the ECT switch which I assume is the temp sensor that you are referring to.

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.

95 accord, heater stays on after i shut it off????

Sounds like the ignition switch is shorted, it may have overheated and the wires may be touching. On a Honda the electrical part of the ignition switch can be replaced without removing the mechanical part. Remove the column cover and check for burnt wires at the switch.

Over heating 95 honda accord.

You have a big problem! The head is shot! You will need to have it machined and checked for cracks. Overheating is a killer! Replace the cam belt at the same time. Frankster016
