Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey
I recently had the second scheduled timing belt and water pump replacement on my 1997 Honda Odyssey at 213,000 miles. Afterwards the temp gauge was showing the engine running extremely cold and I had little heat. I returned to the mechanic and they replaced the thermostat as well. Now the car runs within the mid-range for engine temperature, but much hotter than it used to before the repairs. Also the cooling fan runs on for several minutes after the car has been turned off. This is happening now with outside temps near zero and the heat blasting. I am concerned that in the summer with the AC on the car will overheat. Should I worry?
Honda recommends that the cooling system be topped up with coolant four times as part of the refill process. When the engine is fully cold open the radiator cap and add coolant until full. Run the car until fully warm with heater at maximum. Let it completely cool down. Remove radiator cap and top up with coolant. Repeat this process two more times. This helps purge the air out of the nooks and crannies in the cooling system.
