Check you engine coolant and if it is low fill it up. if it is full you may need to replace the thermostat.

95 acura legend, if I install a air separator tank thru the bleeder valve to relieve the trap air ,will it affect the thermostat operation?


Let me guess. Some mechanic told you to do this to your Legend? :-)
Do not do this (if it's even possible)

The simplest thing you need to do for the Acura Legend is to bleed the coolant system to get rid of the trapped air.

95 Acura legend LS,problem with engine overheat. changed radiator,thermostat,& most of the coolant hoses.however,the trapped air in the coolant has progressed,I was told to put a AST tank.Any thought?


Most modern engines have a degassing facility and sometimes those small ports and hoses block with silt and the small amounts of gas the head gasket has failed to seal will build up in the cooling system, displace coolant and perhaps disrupt the proper operation of the thermostat. Degassing is required to allow the gas to escape harmlessly to the space above the coolant where it eventually vents.

When a failing head gasket allows too much gas to pass into the cooling system even the degassing won't be sufficient and the thermostat operation is likely to be affected causing overheating and excess coolant displacement.

My thought in response to you mentioning trapped "air".

95 acura legend runs hot but heater wont heat up


bleed the air out of the cooling system. You cannot get all the air out have a radiator shop use a pressure bleeder for the job.
