Question about 1995 Honda Passport
Is the temp gauge getting hot as you drive the vehicle or does it remain at a constant temp? if no problem in coolant temp getting too hot (and overheating), then it should not be an issue.
you're sure radiator is filled with 50/50 mix of coolant & water to the top of the cap? if there's an air bubble trapped it could cause a problem. some cars have to be "burped" after refilling with new antifreeze.
if, however, its overheating, then i believe your radiator may be clogged preventing the coolant to flow across the radiator fins and cool properly.
try this. warm the car up (not the point of overheating, but hot enough for the t-stat to open), turn it off, make sure the electric fan is off (or unplug it is so equipped), then run your hand across the radiator. it should feel warm. if you feel cold spots, then that portion of the radiator is clogged preventing flow. new radiator is now in order.
hopefully its only a clogged radiator and not a clogged engine block.
hope this helped.
