Sounds like you have a bad thermostat that needs replacing or an air pocket in the cooling system. Does you cooling fan also come on when it's hot? If it does then it is for sure one of the two above and if the fan doesn't come on then you may need to replace it.

This could happen if your fan is indeed weak.  To test disconnect the thermostat of the radiator by removing the terminals near the radiator hose towards the engine.  You should see the fan run at its highest speed, then you can check if your fan has weakened.

Testimonial: "Where do you think it could be leaking from? A hose, radiator. Could it be the thermostat or water pump?"

Belt replacement 1990 acura integra


Ok, you will need a 10 mm socket and extension and a 14 and 15 mm wrench. One of the "idler" pullies is actualy an adjustable tension pully. loosen the center nut on the pully, and then begin loosening the 10 mm bolt from above. as you loosen it, the pully will drop, and soon enough you can slip the belt off.
good luck
