Question about 1996 Honda Accord

2 Answers

How do I clean a stopped up water jacket in my 96 Honda accord?

The car is running hot when stopped at a redlight or left running in idle. If I turn the air on but leave it on heat it cools off. I've parked it in a specific area the see if it was leaking but haven't seen any signs on the ground but had to put water/antifreeze in it several times. I'm wondering what causes it to need water and run hot

Have you changed out the thermostat? hoses, done the regular car maintenance required on your vehicle? That is where I would start, if you have not done all that, you may end up with a bad head gasket.

If it isn't leaking externally, then it has to be internal, most likely a blown headgasket.

If you can keep the engine running with your foot on the gas at a stop it is likely to be the Idle control valve. Older Hondas' have 2 valves. fast idle control (which is prone to cause fast, or surging idle due to vacuum leakage) and the Idle control that takes over from the cold idle control once warmed up. They are located at the throttle butterfly assembly.

Check that your Radiator fan is operating. The reason that it heats up when stopped is that there is no air flow thru the radiator. When the car is moving there is air flowing thru the radiator (the car is basically cutting thru the air).

try checkin your idle air control. most of the time it is a vacuumn line going into intake.pull it off and if the car revs up dont worry, it wont hurt it. if it does simply put it back on, if it dies you have a bad vacumn.

My 1991 honda accord runs hot its full of colliant and it pushes it out of the jug whats going on


Sounds to me like a blown head gasket. Compression leaking over into the water jacket and or leaking from combustion pressure leaking over into the water jacket pushed coolant out the overflow. This would be the better of another possible problem, water leaking into the oil! Water neither cools or lubricates the bearings which unfortunately live a short life. Check your oil. If it looks like Chicken Soup you may need a short block. I hope it is only your head gasket.

Before adjusting idle, I'd replace fuel filter and run a good fuel system cleaner through it w/next tank of gas. Note buy brand name fuel and avoid cheap fuel. There's ALOT of questionable fuel going around.

What causes a 96 honda accord to run hot if the thermostat is brand new? would kit be the waterpump?


Check for a small leak in your radiator. Mine was leaking on top near the cap. Had a small crack which caused my temp to run hot.

Temp runs hot when at redlight but goes down when i excell


Electric fan on radiator is goofing off. chk if it comes on at all but watching gauge and listening for fan start uo just above operating trmp. Fan helps cool under 35 mph. Forced air cools over 35 mph.

Engine gets hot


There are 3 potential problems:
--faulty thermostat. If it is not opening all the way by the time the engine reaches 160-180 deg F...then coolant is not flowing enough.
--partially blocked radiator caused by build up of rust over the years if never flushed as regular maintenance.
--Insufficient coolant to water ratio. Should be at least 30% or more coolant in the radiator.
--Or combination of above.
Hope this helps.
