SOURCE: running hot

Sounds like Clutch in your fan

The coolant level is right on, no hoses are leaking and the accessory belt is intact. You start the engine, let it idle and make a visual inspection. There's no sign of belt slippage.
If your car is like most, the cooling fan is mounted to its drive pulley via a clutch. Clutch fans operate at different speeds under different conditions to help reduce drain on the engine and to save fuel. When the engine is hot, the clutch fan runs nearly as fast as the engine. When the engine is cold, the fan runs much more slowly.
The fan clutch operation is regulated by a valve that is opened and closed by a thermostatic spring. The valve controls the flow of a viscous silicone fluid between chambers in the clutch assembly. When the engine is cold, the clutch is essentially disengaged, which is why the fan runs at its slowest compared to the engine's speed. As the engine warms up, the air flowing to the fan assembly becomes hotter. The hotter air causes the thermostatic spring to unwind and open the valve. Silicone fluid from the reservoir chamber flows into the main chamber, engaging the clutch, and the fan spins faster (though it's still slightly slower than the engine.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: my car running hot in blows cold air out of blower already replace thermostat and radiator relay switch for the fan

You may not be getting enough coolant to flow through you heater core. I worked on a car once where the core was badly calcified due to the owned using tap water as opposed to distilled water.

Tried it today and none of the windows work from master switch on drivers side except ft passenger window, which went down but will not go back up.


You can't put up the front passenger window with it's own switch ? Did you check the POWER WINDOW RELAY in the instrument panel fuse / relay box ? An you checked POWER fuse 30amp same fuse box ? All window switches have direct power from power window relay !

Why do i have to bypass my fuel pump relay


I look at the relay as two different circuits, the load side of relay is that line with arrowhead, when relay is energized that line moves to other terminal, you can see voltage to load side of relay comes from fusible link. That circuit goes through inertia switch, then to the pump. Then you have the control side of relay, left side in the diagram, that side has to have voltage and ground, voltage comes from eec power relay and that circuit is grounded by the pcm.

My 1993 Honda Accord LX was having problems to start during hot weather, I changed the fuel filter, distributor, rotor cap, rotor and now it seems like gas does not get into the engine. What's wrong?


The Main relay on your vehicle is defective. When the relay is operating while the engine is started and running, it gets hot. Add the hot weather to the relay and they break inside. The relay is located on the side firewall driverside above the left kick plate inside the car,and is secured with a 10mm hex cap screw (bolt). Replace this relay, and your vehicle should start.
It looks like this;

Hope you can read it, the load side of relay gets voltage from fusible link. The load side of relay is that line with arrowhead, showing open switch on left side of relay in diagram.
