I have a 92 Acura Legend L V6 engine. My acura had been running hot until I put a brand new radiator on it, I drove the car for appro 40 miles one way and back, still didn't run hot. The car heater...


Thermostat improperly installed. (backwards) Or possibly you could have a blown head gasket and a bad thermostat at the same time. The head gasket could be letting exhaust gasses into the cooling system. A bad (stuck open) thermostat could "mask" this problem by allowing the coolant to circulate through the radiator when it is not supposed to. Thus, installing a new thermostat would trap the exhaust gasses in the cylinder head and cause the overheating.

WHAT COULD CAUSE AN ACURA 2001 CL TO STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFIC?


Wow, anything? everything? On my 1999 I found they have only one ground for the start/run system and that is a wire connected to the thermostat housing from the transmission loom. This came loose when the thermostat was replaced and would start running when I tugged on the wire (and completed the circuit).

Where is the thermostat located on a 1994 acura legend


Hi:
The thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is on the engine, and what the upper radiator hose connects to. To remove the thermostat, you should : 1) start with a cool engine, 2) drain the coolant 3) disconnect upper radiator hose 4) unbolt thermostat housing. To install, reverse the process, but make sure you have a new gasket for the housing, and clean up the mating surfaces on both the housing and the engine.
