Car getting hot


I just fixed this on my wifes car! I thought it was coolant level at first or that the radiator needed to be flushed so i did both. BUT while flushing the radiator i noticied the cooling fans weren't kicking on and this was the problem all along. Its hard to get to but only cost between $15-$20 for a new temperature sensor. If your fans aren't kicking on to cool down the coolant in the radiator this is your problem.

Aircon not wrking & Warning light on dash


I am thinking that South Africa has a bit different configuration of lights than we do here in the states, over here, the third from the top is the SRS light, but I think you probably mean the radiator light.

The sensor on the over flow bottle goes bad, and the light comes on. Is the bottle feeding back into the radiator, if not, this could be a problem, how are the actual fluid levels in the system itself, not in the overflow, if you have a small leak in the radiator, it will keep the car from creating vacuum to draw fluid in from the bottle, so your bottle will always be full, while your engine starves for water.

How are your temps running on the engine? The AC has a safety switch will shut down the compressor if the temps are too high... if you are running the original stock radiator, I would bet that it needs replacement, it could well explain BOTH your problems. Check your radiator and fans (if your fans don't come on when you turn on your AC, it could also kick it off) With the car sitting there, started but still cold, turn on the AC, check to see if the fan on the timing belt side of the engine turns on - it should regardless of temperature.

Again, while it could be a fan, my bet is on the radiator.

Cheers,
Scott

Symbol lit up


there can be a yellow light in the cluster that looks like a small radiator or box with waves inside of it to indicate water. This light means that the coolant level sensor has detected a low coolant level. Typically the expansion tanks inside of these cars will crack from heat and age. A simple diagnosis is to check your coolant level and top it off. Do not forget to bleed it by unscrewing the bleeder screw found on the upper radiator hose while filling up the reservoir found on the right hand side of the radiator. once the coolant has been filled, tighten the bleeder screw back down but be careful not to over tighten. and finally screw on the expansion tank cap. run the vehicle to operating temperature and use a flashlight to inspect the engine bay for leaks. If there is a leak, it will need to be repaired. possible leaks are a cracked expansion tank, leaking radiator hoses, or a leaking water pump or thermostat.

LIGHT IN DASH BOARD


DO NOT operate your CRV until you have drained the coolant from the engine and radiator, then flush the system thoroughly w/ water.. Why did you add liquid detergent to the radiator? This will cause foaming of the detergent, and will probably result in diminished cooling of the system. Please describe the dashboard light that's on . Is it some type of symbol? Do you notice anything unusual about how the car is running? Please let me know the answers to the above questions, and the outcome. countrycurt0
