SOURCE: overheating 1992 acra integra

The coolant temp sensor tells the computer tempurature of engine at all times.It tells the coolant fans to come on,and also very important,when to cut off.If the fans don`t go off by them selfs,then temp is not going down.Now this is if the ac is off,cooling fans come on any time ac is turned on,so check for fans coming on and off with ac off.A bad coolant sensor would cause the fans not ot come on,but not to cut off nessasaralyCoolant systems must be bled of air trapped in systemfor the engine to be cooled .If air is in the system,the coolant won`t flow correctly.

SOURCE: I have a 1996 Acura Integra. The blower moter will

Check all your fuses.( you probably did, but do it again, one at a time) it seems like your control pannel is not getting power. See what wire is the power for the control pannel and bypass it with a jumper wire, giving it power and see if the blower works. Be careful though, make sure you find the correct wire that powers the control, or else you'll burn the control.

Possibly a clogged-up radiator or a blown head gasket.

How do I know my cooling fans are working

There a a few tests you can conduct here. Firstly, put power directly to your fan(s) Run two new wires directly from the battery to the + and - of the fan motor. Be careful doing this, as there is a risk of shorting the battery to earth. Maybe connect up the fan end before touching the wires onto the battery terminals. This will prove if your fans actually work. They should spin up to speed. Next, test the fan thermostat. There should be a terminal connection somewhere. One side of the fan wires would be connected to the thermostat. You will likely need a voltmeter to do this test. The thermostat is just a switch that should operate after a certain temperature is reached. Normally you would have to remove the thermostat from the car engine to test it, but it might be possible to test it when it's still installed. Next, test or replace the radiator thermostat. If coolant is unable to flow through the radiator after the engine warms up, you will get overheating. After a short warmup period, the radiator thermostat should open and allow coolant to flow through the engine block. Next, when the engine is running, check the exhaust pipe for water. Some water might be normal, until the engine is hot, but if a lot of water is evident, then maybe the block has been cracked. Best test for that is a cylinder compression test, with a compression gauge. Lastly, please do something positive about this. There is a great danger you will crack the engine block, especially if you are adding cold water/coolant to a very hot engine. Remember: does the fan run off direct power? Is the fan thermostat switching correctly? Does the radiator thermostat work correctly? Is the water pump working correctly? Hope this helps. Regards,

Cooling fans are not coming on, what could be the problem?

Either the temp sensor is bad, or the relay is bad. or the fan motor is bad. Or you have a blown fuse.
Look for fuse first.... To test if fan motor is bad disconnect the connector to the fan and jumper it to the battery.if it spins it's good. the other two. use a component locator to find their location and replace. they are inexpensive. Temp sensor is in the cooling circuit (radiator...maybe next to thermostat) the relay will be in a fuse box under the hood.

My 2000 Oldsmobile 3.5L intrigue is overheating, needle go slighty above 1/2 mark. Replaced coolant temp sensor, thermostat/housing, water pump is working, both radiator fans working , but spinning kind of...

Check to ensure fans are getting enough amperage to run at proper speed. turning your heat on removes heat form the engine and puts it into the passenger compartment. It could be possible that a sensor on the fan is not allowing the fans to spin fast enough or the fans may have a sensor which controls the speed of the fan to coincide with the heat that needs to be removed. Generally, your thermostat needle should sit just slightly below half. Do not run engine anywhere near the red zone as damage can result

I have replaced my 92 toyota pickup with new thermostat, heads, water pump,and radiator and it is still getting hot

When they come into my shop like this I check several things.First I check with a temperature gun whether it is actually getting hot( a gauge fault)Maybe your local garage may have one and check for you.If it is heating, as it approaches the fan cut in speed I check for operation of the fan.Electric fans usually can be tested by removing plug near thermostat housing or grounding this should turn on.If you have a viscous fan type(it is bolted to the front of the water pump and free wheels).This should begin to spin faster as the heats causes the viscous to bind.On this type you should feel the heat getting pulled off the radiator and fanning back past the engine and underneath the vehicle.Also ensure if there is a shroud that encompasses the fan and the radiator.Without this on, certain models can not draw heat off the radiator effectively.
Note also if you have air conditionally this should either turn on the electric fan also or switch on an auxillary fan located either beside it or behind the grille.
The fourth item checked is the lower radiator hose.Ensure as holding the revs at cruise speed that it doesnt flatten closed.This can be caused by going soft,or a restriction in the cooling system circuit,but you have indicated that the radiator has been replaced(I am assuming it is a new one)
Hope this helps or get back with your findings and we will work further on it.

Sounds like the cooling fan on the radiator has a bad clutch. You may also have a bad thermostat. Replace the thermostat and have the fan clutch tested. It should spin freely with the vehicle off. If the fan is not kicking in when you are sitting still with the engine running you could have a bad fan or fan relay. This will also cause the vehicle to over heat.

if the the lower hose is cold and it runs hot then that tells me its not circulating.also there had to be a problem before if the fans are wired to come on when car is first started,may have a bad waterpump or exhaust is getting into cooling system, have a block test done to see if there a bad head gasket first before you continue, good luck hope this helps.

This could be a multitude of things:

Stuck closed thermostat.

Cooling fan not coming on.

Clogged radiator.

Low on coolant.

Water pump failing/leaking.

Head gasket blown, leaking exhaust into antifreeze.

Clogged catalytic converter.

Thermostat: If the Van heats up, then feel the upper radiator hose. If it's cold, then your thermostat is closed. Replace thermostat.

Coolant: If low, simply fill with distilled water and coolant. Low levels will let engine over heat.

Radiator: If there are cold-to-the-touch spots on the radiator after it should be warmed up, then a clogged is probably occuring. Have radiator flushed.

Head Gasket: If you smell exhaust fumes in your coolant reservois tank, then you got a blown head gasket.

Cat Converter: Only can be tested if off the car. Or you could try a non-contact thermometer. These are also good to testing cold spot on radiator or if thermostats are open.

Cooling fan: If mechanical it'll be spinning. If electrical, it should come on automatically with the A/C, or when it gets hot.

Water pump: Will be leaking from the front if it needs replaced. On a van, it's a tough job.

Good luck!

Over heating

You can test the fan itself by unplugging the connector to the fan relay and crossing the heavy gauge wires with another peice of heavy gauge wire. The fan should spin right up and you can then eliminate the motor as the problem. You probably have another bad fan relay. And your right about probably wanting to replace the thermostat as well.
