Question about 2003 Honda Element
I replaced thermostat, radiator, water pump, ac condenser fan, flushed antifreeze but still have the same problem. What would be causing the overheat now?
Have a compression test done for head gasket/ cracked head. Check that there is not an air lock in the cooling system. If it is overheating at stop lights or when going slow and you have a viscous fan hub then replace the fan hub. Check that the electric fan is coming on when it should.. Check that you put the thermostat in the right way round otherwisw it will not open and block the system

hi justin 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 in the 4GEN(88-91) 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
