The next thing to do is to observe the car as it idles for 10 minutes to ensure the electric radiator fan is coming on if not replace the fan relay if that doesn't work replace the coolant temp. sensor that activates the relay that activates the fan after that ti can only be the fan itself that is if the fan is not coming on.

How to know if thermsat need change on Honda accord v6


1. If your coolant temperature is high your engine will overheat and you may have a faulty thermostat . However overheating may also be caused by other issues such as a failed water pump, blockages in the cooling system, a compression leak into the cooling system and other issues.

2. When the engine is fully cold open the hood and locate the top radiator hose running between the top of the radiator and the engine. Start the car and then feel the top hose. It should stay cool for a short time while the coolant gets to operating temperature and then the thermostat will open. When it opens the hot coolant from the engine will flow through the top hose into the radiator and you should feel the hose warm up very fast. This is an indication that the thermostat is operating normally but it is still possible that it is stuck partly open (when it should be fully open) and is impeding the flow of hot coolant from the engine. In that event it would need to be changed.

If you start the engine and you almost immediately feel hot coolant running through the top radiator hose the thermostat may not be closing at all and may be stuck fully open or partly open. It would then need to be changed. If stuck fully open the engine will run too cold some of the time and inefficiently, especially if the outside air temperature is very cold. But if a thermo is stuck fully closed or partially closed this will cause the engine to overheat and engine damage will result.

To properly test a thermostat it really needs to be removed from the engine. Please read the section in the link on Thermostats.

My engine overheating problem is in my 2000 land rover. The fan is running and the electric fan comes on at correct engine temperature. After start up the engine runs normal the temp gage rises slowly to...


the usual suspects are:
stuck shut thermostat
clogged raiator
dead water pump
low coolant level
it's sunday, rovers don't work on sunday.
Then again, maybe its wednesday, rovers take half a day then. 25322555-21syibu3fgwpdxocjnkpw0ib-5-0.jpg

I have already replaced the radiator and thermostat but my 91 Honda Accord still overheats, why?


Run a cooling system pressure test. If you are losing pressure, then you will have to first locate the source of your leak.

With the engine started and the radiator topped off with coolant, does the radiator spout water out of the top? Does the spouting become more aggressive with engine revs? Yes? = Blown head gasket, or cracked cylinder.
No?- check operation of radiator cooling fan. With car stationary and hood up, run engine up to temperature and make sure radiator cooling fan kicks in before the engine temperature rises too high.

Temperature rises,is the water pump damage?


before to suspect water pump not working. need to check radiator cup, if temperature rise on stop. engine thermostat is the other factor of overheat and notice the temperature begin to rise from start up. leaks from radiator is the other factor,coolant is not enough to support the system.

Where is the thermostat located on the 1998 accord ex 4cyl? I have noticed the temp gauge rising repidly in only a 1-3 mile drive, I thought the thermostat may not be opening and wanted to change it.


Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine. The place where the hose mates the engine is the thermostat housing, and of course, the thermostat is inside it. Another reason for rapid temperature increase is that the electric radiator fans are not turning on when the engine reaches normal operating temperature.

My 96 accord overheats


In my case, I found that the suction hose that connects to the inside of the radiator overflow/filler tank cap (front left side of engine compartment) had dropped off into the tank, causing the radiator to run dry, causing overheat. It became apparent when the fans would run for extended periods after shutting the car down. Of course, the temperature gage was showing it, but who looks at that?

Honda Accord 20012.0L auto, Radiator fans is not working.


check the thermostat, the thermostat regulates water flow through your engine to cool it down sometimes they get stuck open or closed, remove it and put it through a simple test
grab a cup of cold water and a glass of hot water drop it in one then the other, you should be able to see if it opens and closes
