    IT MUST BE THE RADIATOR..DO THE TOP AND BOTTOM HOSES GET HOT? WHEN YOU LOOK INSIDE, DO YOU SEE ANY CORROSION? IS THERE ANY AIR IN THE SYSTEM NOW? LET ME KNOW.

Your coolant system may be clogged somewhere such as the condenser. you should flush the whole system out radiator, condensor and tubes. after checking to make sure you do not have a leak and the fan is operating properly. replace the fluid from. there. I had the same problem it ended up being clogged in the lower part of the radiator. easy fix with a hose and water and youll spend about 35$ for new fluid

How can i tell if the water pump is working on a 1997 honda odessey already changed the thermastat


this is a tough one, the waterpump on these engines is to the rear of the engine with its on belt that runs off the rear of the cam. i have seen these waterpump impellers break apart and then the coolant wont circulate and inturn iit overheats,i guess you would need to remove the pump for a good look at it. if you are having an overheating problem and the fans work then i would look at the pump. another test to see if pump is working is to start the engine and keep feeling the top and bottom hoses both should get hot after a while then you can say pump is working but if the bottom hose is warm and it runs hot then i would look at waterpump. good day.

Water pump ,thermastat already replaced and still overheating.


Check you radiator for cleanlyness inside and out. Look under the cap to see if there is water movement there when running, Be careful if the engine is hot, it has to be hot enough for the thermostate to open.
