Question about 1995 Honda Passport
Okay so I drive my car up the hill on the one side and my car cools down and when I go back down the other side even faster, my car will overheat. I have changed the radiator, the thermostat(I checked the original with the boiling water trick and it was working, I did the check after changing it), and the water pump and timing belt was changed last year because there was a leak in the water pump's bearing. There is a chance that the belt was not tightened or installed incorrectly, I do remember having trouble with the that got it tight(tensioner?), and I also remember getting lower mileage after it was replaced. May it have come loose and not allowing the water to flow correctly with to little tension?
It sounds like your coolant level may be too low. When you drive up hill the coolant will tend to flow into your engine block and help to cool it down. When you drive down hill the coolant will tend to flow out of the engine block and into the radiator. This may allow the engine block to overheat. I recommend checking your coolant level. If you need to add coolant use a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. If your coolant level is low you may have a leak. Look for the leak while the engine is hot.
I'd also check to make sure your electric cooling fan is working. Let the engine warm up with the car idling in park. Watch to see if the fan ever turns on. If the fan doesn't turn on the problem could be caused by the fan itself, a fan relay, or a temperature sensor.
