New thermostat, installed, saw, new coolant made a little mess filling reservoir, (normal) checked fan fuse for some reason, and condenser fan fuse (xxx ?:), and temp guage, is slightly lower on gauge (than normal?) (disconnected xxxx? quit? a bit? to get to thermosta?.t no dash warning lights have a feeling I popped a relay.


ok, you did a coolant service with STAT,

and it failed.

tell us what works right and wrong, symptoms only.

over heating? parked, (fan never comes on)? as it hits 225F?

under heating? ( fan stuck on , up North can cause huge cold engine)

dash gauge stuck low. (thermostat wrong heat range 180f is best. see FSM for spec. on this temp. spec..

Dash guage varies.? oddly (air in system)?

Dash gauge too high.? (Stat put in upside-down or bleed hole (jiggle) not UP side. higher side of mount , trapping air.)

Does something wrong happen only driving?


does cap on rad hold 12-14psi pressure, hot.?

if car has fan belts, are they tight? (for sure water pump does)

SOURCE: temperature gauge indicates overheating, but engine not overheating, coolant being push into reservoir.

hi my name is brad i see you are haveing a problem and i think i might know the problem. if you have done all of that to your car and it still over heating you might have a blown head gasket one way to check is to pull your thermostat out and fill your coolant leaving the cap off then start you car let it rrun a few minutes and if you see bubbles the radiator its the head gasket even though you wont have coolant in your oil or out the tail pipe. if you check that and ther is no bubbles i have one other spot for you to check ( dont know if you have the 1.5 or 1.6 sohc ) but if you have the 1.6 sohc with the mpfi you should check on the throttle body at the idle air control valve(IAC) you will see two small line`s that have coolant some times on hondas with high millage the line will fill with crud and that can cause a problem.. if you have any other honda needs please let me know

SOURCE: Radiator fan not working

Hi. Check the bottom of the radiator or on the side, as you also have a temperature-sending switch. The switch must reach a certain temperature before sending a signal on to the fan relay.

The switch just screws into the radiator.

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

SOURCE: 2005 honda civic radiator fills the overflow

Always remember and I "Stress" although its "New" don't mean it comes without "Defects"

However if fluid is going into the reserve tank it would indicate a need to replace the cap although sounds as if all the bases were covered along the way , but could be a faulty thermostat , and you from time to time watch the temperature gauge and its normal level correct ?

i would after a good few hours or even overnight allow the vehicle to cool and then 1st thing open the hood and remove the radiator cap , ensure the radiator is full and leaving the cap off put a piece of cardboard under the vehicle this will allow you to see if coolant is leaking anyplace else ...start the vehicle and after a few minutes it should begin to exchange and you will notice the exchange of fluid replace the cap unless it drops considerably then add fluid so keep it open and nearby , reconnect the cap and always watch out for moving parts and "Never " wear loose articles of clothing and keep you hands etc away from moving parts ..{just a reminder} and note as to when the fan"s engage .at this point look at your temperature readout is it normal range the reserve for fluid filling it
up .
as well look under the vehicle and watch for any leaks onto the cardboard !

if all else fails at this point take it to a parts store that will have a code reader simply plugs into your vehicle and without starting it turn the key to the on position and allow it to communicate with your vehicle any codes or faults will appear and should be wrote down any and all of them ...they may tell you exactly what the codes read and if applicable you can purchase any parts needed at that point ..

however to me i am leaning towards improper fluid temperature settings and as well a faulty "Thermostat"..turn on all your heat switches and fan to full with the engine running are both hoses going into the heater core going into the firewall hot / if the top is hot and the bottom is cold then it suggests the heater-core is plugged and requires a flush if both are hot then the water pump is working "

if you have a bery high abnormal reading on the temperature gage and everything is normal otherwise it could be a faulty temperature plug

ensure any and all wires are not touching the engine block causing the Gage to ground out giving a false reading

but this is where i would begin hope it helps you somewhat

No heat

I would by checking coolant level. If your too low u won't have enough to circulate. after that u r looking at a thermostat or water pump.i would pull the thermostat and then put it back together and run it. now remember without it the coolant should circulate all the time so u will want to replace it so your fluid will reach the optimum temperature, but if u get a little heat with it out u know that was the problem. if thats not it u will want to run vehicle with radiator cap off . u will be able to see if fluid is moving. make sure u have thermostat out or u really dont know which one it is

Hi. I do not get any heat from my 99 Acura TL. Fan and a/c working fine.

Check coolant level in coolant reservior. Also with the engine cold, remove the radiator cap and check coolant level. it should be full.
If you fluid levels are full have your mechanic check your heater control valve. It may need replacing.

2000 Acura TL overheating at low speeds with A/C on

Before ordering or installing fans I would buy and change your Coolant Temperature Senor on top of the engine block. It plugs in to the ECU and tells the fan when to kick the fans on. If that does not work you also have a temperature on the bottom of the radiator, known as your fan switch.

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...

From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

My 2000 TL has a buzzing and ticking noise in the power steering pump. There is a lot of foaming in the reservoir and fluid all over it. Is it the pump or an O-ring?

Sounds like low fluid level. Some reservoirs must be slightly overfilled. Fill yours to level by removing the filler cap and top it off. Run it and slowlly add more and see if it settles down. Check your hoses for leaks or cracks. Make sure those clamps are tight and no hose cracks around them.

Cooling fan for acura tl 2000 does not work

If you can locate the temperature switch, looks like a large bolt head with 2 wires on it, bridge the wires on it, and this should make the fan work. If the fan works then this switch is faulty. If the fan doesn't then it could be the fuse, or a broken wire.
The fan switch is either on the radiator or on the thermostat housing.
If you can get to it easy, short across with a screwdriver.
