Question about 1990 Honda Accord
More often than not the problem is a thermostat that is stuck open, causing heater output to take a very long time to heat up. Replacing the thermostat is as follows:
Disconnect the negative battery cable (if you have an anti-theft radio, make sure you have the code).
Drain the cooling system (petcock bottom of radiator)
Follow the top radiator hose back to where it connects to the engine.
The part with the two bolts in it that the hose connects to is the thermostat housing.
You may have to remove the hose in order to remove the housing.
When you have removed the housing, note the position of the thermostat before you remove it.
When installing, use new gasket, etc.
(you might be able to get away with not removing the radiator hose, but it is recommended)
Be prepared for a bit of spillage when you remove the housing.
Hope this helps you.
