Question about 1995 Honda Passport

1995 honda passport problems..

It started overheating, the guy that sold me it told me it didn't have a thermostat, so when i went to buy one it overheated, i let it sit to cool down, left the store and it wouldn't go more than 2 miles an hour. let it sit for another two hours fired right up, but still didn't have any power. I just put in the new thermostat, did a tune up, and put new coil packs in it. it isn't overheating BUT the top hose that connects to my radiator is hot while the bottom and radiator are cold. help?

A new part can be faulty so remove the thermostat and submerge it in a suitable container in kettle boiled water and watch to see if it opens

SOURCE: 1995 honda passport i have installed 2 thermostats

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.

SOURCE: 1991 honda accord is overheating. Installed new

When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

===

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

It sounds like it could be a head gasket or some migration of exhaust gas into your water jackets, do a head gasket leak test and that will determine what direction you take next, make sure the top hose has been bled of all air first

1995 honda passport overheating. We changed the thermostat and radiator. How can I tell if it's the head gasket?


If the fan is running and the car is really running hot it is a problem with coolant circulation, either a thermostat that isn't opening fully (I have seen intermittent ones) or crud buildup in the radiator. I say really running hot because a defective instrument sender or wiring problem could cause an incorrect reading.I would suggest replacing the thermostat first (or removing it for a while as a test) to see how the temperature behaves, and if it behaves badly a good radiator flush.When u filled the car up with coolant did u open the bolt to purge the air in the system.I had a accord that was doing the same thing .the bolt to purge air on my accord was right beside the thermostat.just a suggestion with what info u have given. if so It might be the Head Gasket caused the car to overheat.

My 1995 honda accord cranks but won't start sometimes and others starts right up. what could this be? I've been told there is no pulse to injectors?


Does it seem to be tempreture related. i had a cutomers vehicle for almost 2 weeks and it started everytime. The thing was it was inside the garage. Finally one day I had pulled it out into the sun and when i went to put it back in, at that point it didn't start. It was a Honda but don't remember the year but it was around a 1995 like yours. It eneded up being the PGMFI relay wich would cause the exact sysmtoms that you are talking about. I have found out since then that this is a common problem. Give that a shot. I hope this helps and good luck.

Overheating


Hi,
A common problem with overheating that get's overlooked, is a sticking thermostat. As inexpensive as it is, and as easy as it is to replace, I would strongly suggest replacing it. An overheated engine could be catastrophic and a huge expense. I hope your problem is resolved...
