How much is the car worth? (Blue book value) How many miles are on the engine? I say if the vehicle is costing more than it is worth then get rid of it. But that is just in my opinion. New head? as in head gasket? headers?

Running hot


A 1992 honda, well, there are a few things that may be cause the problem.

Here are a few ideas, first is the cooling fan working, is it coming on when temp starts to run hot?
The next problem which is costly would be the head gasket, you would need to do a block test, there is a kit that you can try, its a tube that you fill with a liquid that starts off blue, you drain coolant down a little , the tube goes into radiator hole where the cap is, remove cap and start engine, stick tube into hole and with a rubber ball you squeeze ball which sucks fumes out of radiator through liquid, the reason to drain coolant a little is so you do not get coolant into liquid in tube, if the color changes to a yellow you have a bad head gasket or cracked head. you can also have a shop run this test.

The last thing would be the water pump, if the cooling system is rusty looking or not i have seen the impeller on the pump rot away and then the pump will spin but not make coolant flow to cool engine.a good way to test this would be to make sure coolant is full and start engine from cold and let it run every so often feel upper and lower radiator hoses, if car starts to run hot feel hoses they should both be hot, if one is hotter than the other then it could be pump.
Hope this is helpful, good day

My have a blown head gasket on my 2000 Honda Accord V6. What could have led to this problem?


most common causes of blown head gaskets are engine overheating. could be caused radiator cooling fans inoperative, cooling system leaks, clogged radiator passages,or sticking thermostat. if a head gasket is severely blown the cooling system will pressurize very rapidly on cold engine startup. other more rare cases of head gaskets blowing could be loose head bolts. make sure new head bolts are used and torqued correctly if service manuals recommend new head bolts.

I just put a brand new radiator and radiator cap in my car and its still over heating and now its misfiring what could be causing this?


Did you bleed the cooling system? and check operation of the thermostat, which should have been done after fitting radiator before finishing by putting on radiator cap.
If not remove radiator cap when cold get vehicle warm and check thermostat operation, while bleeding any air pockets in cooling system and if no flow and bubbles or it starts to boil (shooting water) out of radiator the thermostat could be jammed or head gasket blown.
Sounds like it could be a blown head gasket. Get it hot again and miss firing, remove and inspect all spark plugs you may find a very clean spark plug indicating water entry into that cylinder or even water/coolant droplets in spark plug. You can also hold paper over spark plug holes and give the engine a quick crank over to see if any water comes out of cylinder while cooling system is still under pressure, or use radiator pressure tester to pressurize cooling system, wait 5-10 minutes and then crank over checking for water/coolant in cylinders. Another tool to check for blown head gaskets that cause overheating is a TK Head check, which sniffs the cooling system for evidence of exhaust fumes in cooling system.

Engine is getting hot


Obviously, check the coolant level first.
I'm sure you've already done that, so next would be to replace the thermostat. If the thermostat is sticking in the closed position, the engine will overheat.
It could also be that the radiator is getting plugged, in which case you'd either need a new radiator or you'd need to have the radiator professionally cleaned.
If it's "none of the above", it could be a damaged head gasket. Generally, if the head gasket goes it causes the coolant to blow out the overflow. Once the head gasket has failed the engine just won't hold coolant. If that's the case the only real option is to remove the head, have it machined to make it perfectly flat again, (overheating causes heads to warp slightly and a new head gasket won't seal properly) and reassemble.
Good luck. Hope it's a cheap fix for you.

HONDA CIVIC 1992 HEATING UP. i CLEAN THE RADIATOR WATER PUMP IS WORKING FINE THERE IS NO WATER LEAK - BUT STILL LOOSING WATER 1/2 LTS EVERY TWO DAYS


You may have a small pin hole in one of your hoses that is only leaking under pressure. Of course you may not notce it with the vehicle idling because the pressure is higher as the rpms rise while you are driving.

More importantly though, you need to check your oil dipstick. If the oil looks "milky" you may have water leaking into your oil. This can happen if you have a problem with your "heads" such as a small crack. A cracked head can lead to a blown motor so check it out as you are checking all of your hoses on your cooling systems.

Good Luck!

1992 lower ball joint replacement


THE LOWER BALL JOINTS ARE A VERY TIGHT PRESS FIT INTO THE ARM, YOU NEED TO BUY A BALL JOINT PRESS KIT TO REMOVE THEM, BUT BASED ON MY PAST EXPERIENCE IT IS BEST TO JUST REMOVE THE LOWER CONTROL ARM AND HAVE A MACHINE SHOP PRESS THEM OUT AND THE NEW ONES IN, IT IS VERY EASY TO DISTORT AND RUIN THE CONTROL ARM DOING AN "ON THE CAR REPLACEMENT", THE BALL JOINT PRESS KIT RUNS ABOUT $50-$200 DEPENDING ON THE MAKER AND THE QUALITY, TRY WWW.HARBORFRIEGHT.COM TOOLS FOR AN ENTRY LEVEL KIT.

Car wont start


when you changed you valve cover gasket did you torque it to specs? also did you use some type of sealant around the holes where the plugs go through as well as each corner and complete left side where the semicircle cutout is? pull all of your plugs and see if they are oil fouled this would prevent a spark and you engine wouldn't start if it's bad enough.
