Question about 1998 Honda Accord
My temp gauge goes near the red and i have lost heat in the car,i'v not lost any water and all the pipes are hot.could this mean the thermostat needs changing or is it the water heater valve?
Let's don't say that it is the head gasket yet. There is a heater core that could be bad. First, replace the t'stat. When putting water/ antifreeze back into the car. Add the water to the outgoing hose of the radiator that feeds into the engine. This will insure you get water into the engine. Of course you will still add water to the radiator itself. Let the engine run while you are adding water. It won't overheat while you are doing this. If you do have a blown headgasket, you will have water in your oil. Does the gauge go to the red at low RPMs only? Lt me know what you find out.
