Question about 1996 Acura TL Series
Six month ago ,i had a overheat problem wiyh my acura 96 model,the mecanic sugest me a head gasket ,i did it,but now the problem come back,i went to see the same mecanic he say i have to change the radiator ,we replace it by a new one, but the problem still there. what do you thing about that? thank you
And since you already blown and replaced the gasket once, a repeat of the issue could mean a cracked or warp head or block... hopefully you didnt run the car very long when it overheated, then it is more likely just warped... that can sometimes be repaired by a good machinist. most importantly tho, DO NOT run the engine with that sludge in it. you will compound the problems. if you plan on fixing this yourself, remember your cooling system and oil need to be completely flushed.

I would start with a thermostat and work from there. You can buy it for around $15 from AutoZone. Give that a try and if it doesn't fix your problem let us know. I would definitely look at what de8fanatic said about the oil looking like chocolate milk and if it looks like that don't even worry about the thermostate. However if oil looks good, replace the thermostat and hopefully that will fix it for you. Good luck. Thanks for rating my reponse and thanks for using FixYa!
