1994 Honda Accord Overheating unless Heater is On.

Recently my Accord started Overheating, but once I turn on the heater, the temperature goes down. There are times I have to have the heater on at full blast for the temperature to remain steady. i have replaced the thermostat. Radiator has been checked out. Water Pump was replaced approx. 7 months ago. I do not know what else to check. Any suggestions?

Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..

1986 honda accord lx at red line on temp gauge

Hi dakota_love what we need to verify is if your cooling fan is operating properly, what you need to do is first bring temperature close to redline
(but don't hit redline it may cause a blown head gasket) than you need to open up the hood with the engine running (and temperature close to redline)at and see if any of the cooling fan in front of the radiator is coming on, please update once this part of diag. is completed so we know which way to direct for further diagnostic.

1994 Honda Accord heat/cool system

There could be an obstruction in the heater core under the dashboard. It's also possible your thermostat is stuck in the open position. I'd start with changing the thermostat. As far as your A/C goes, either you have a slow refrigerant leak and whomever did the servicing didn't bother to check for leaks and/or the A/C compressor could be malfunctioning. Unfortunately A/C problems can be costly.

is it the temperature control knob or the fan speed knob? the temperature control knob is hooked to a cable that operates a valve in the engine compartment. sounds like this is your trouble can open the hood and locate the heater control valve near the firewall...have someone turn the knob to see if the valve lever opens/closes. if it does it is bad. if it does not move there is a problem in the dashboard behind the heater control unit.
