Question about 1992 Honda Prelude
Honda prelude 1992 h22a1 vtec import. bottom radiator hose cold. upper radiator bulging. Thermostat was renewed. Radiator new. Fan does not work on starting or running but works when aircon is on.
The fan won't come on because the thermoswitch is in the bottom of the radiator, without coolant flow the switch never gets hot. Just because a part is new doesn't mean it is good, is the thermostat an aftermarket part ? I would take out the thermostat (leave the gasket) and see if the bottom hose gets warm. If the bottom hose does not get warm, you may have a blockage or bad water pump

Well - "easy" is relative.
To me - it may be easy - tou you... only you can be the judge.
If you feel comfortable replacing the timing belt properly - then i'd go for it.
Just know - if you have problems - you will have to tow the vehicle to the mechanic.
I have used eBay since the early 90's and have never gotten taken.
The sellers rating is important - and look at the feedback of the seller to make sure they are living up to their end of the deal.
When you have a new pump - re-post and we can give you some help and tips if you want to tackle yourself.
A Haynes manual would be a great help to you also. Look for those on eBay as well. They basically tear down a car and put it bcak together. EVERY PIECE.
