Run a cooling system pressure test. If you are losing pressure, then you will have to first locate the source of your leak.

With the engine started and the radiator topped off with coolant, does the radiator spout water out of the top? Does the spouting become more aggressive with engine revs? Yes? = Blown head gasket, or cracked cylinder.
No?- check operation of radiator cooling fan. With car stationary and hood up, run engine up to temperature and make sure radiator cooling fan kicks in before the engine temperature rises too high.

SOURCE: need to replace radiator in 1997 honda accord se. what are the steps?

First drain radiator by opening drain valve,"located on bottom corner usualy the right,but not always." If you open the overflow or remove cap this will happen much faster.For safety sake disconnect ground wire from battery,the radiator is locked down by top cover that attaches to body with generaly 4 bolts, upper and lower hoses have to be disconnected and if it is automatic the transmission cooling lines are connected in stacked fashion,"one above the other."The cooling fan has to be unplugged and it should be removable at this point,"when unplugging fan be carefull with connector so it doesn't break.reverse steps to replace making sure the bolts go in the right place and it all fits properly.the thermostat,"located behind the kneck of upper hose," should be replaced after connecting lower hose because in order to fill the block up and prevent damaging thermostat the block shoud be filled with coolant before attaching upper hose.

Remove the thermostat and run the engine at idle until it starts to overheat. If it does then the radiator may have clogged veins and needs replacing.

Overheating real fast and I have already replaced the radiator


If your car is overheating extremely fast - the first thing to check is that your thermostat is opening. If it doesn't open then the car will overheat very quickly. When the thermostat opens water will be able to circulate through the radiator, and be cooled.

Temperature gage rises and engine overheats on our honda accord. thermostat has been changed and it is not any better. whats next?


The next thing to do is to observe the car as it idles for 10 minutes to ensure the electric radiator fan is coming on if not replace the fan relay if that doesn't work replace the coolant temp. sensor that activates the relay that activates the fan after that ti can only be the fan itself that is if the fan is not coming on.
