I have a 96 and had similar problem. Did you replaced or removed the Thermostat? If you did please replace it with a new one and it should solve your problem. My vehicle was doing the same thing and after checking sensors and replacing Fan Motor, problem persisted until I replaced the Thermostat. Good Luck.

My car honda accord fans not working the car gets too hot what can I do

If you have checked all fuses and relays..and your fans are not coming on at all..most likely you have bad sensors that sense the temp of the water in the radiator..most are inserted into the radiator core..and to the fans and when the heat gets higher then their settings the fans come on and off when cool enough without them.. Need to have someone bypass the sensors.." Direct 12 volt to the fans" and if the fans run it is the sensors or fuse or relay..good luvk

make sure the cooling fan is working properly behind the rad as if its not the motor will run hotter than it should.the no heat indicates you may have a plugged heater core,you don`t say if the heat was good before the motor replacement.if it was then you still have air in the cooling system that needs to be purged.its also possible the head gasket may have a problem so you should have a combustion chamber test done on the cooling system.there have been problems with the water pump impellers not pumping coolant properly,like the impeller slipping on the pump shaft or the impeller blades worn/damaged not pumping coolant properly.

Hondas are very tough cars and will run hot right up until a radiator hose ruptures. You need to make sure that there is not a problem.
When your Honda says it is hot, make sure the radiator fan is running. If not, it can be a bad fan or fan relay.
Next, turn on the heat full blast and make sure that you have allot of heat coming into the car. If not, even though your overflow tank has fluid in it, your radiator may be dry. This can happen if your radiator cap is bad. Check the fluid level in the radiator itself, but don't pull the cap until your car has cooled down at least an hour to reduce the risk of getting burned by steam.
If it stops reading HOT when you have full heat on it could be either the thermostat or a plugged radiator. Change the thermostat first since it is the cheapest fix.

Is the thermostat installed correctly? There is a bleed hole on the thermostat with a rivet in it. That should be up. Is the coolant level topped off? There should be a bleed screw on the manifold if I remember correctly. Honda's are very sensitive to coolant level. Check the cooling fans to see if they are running. The left one should be for cooling and the right fan for when a/c is turned on. You can jumper the plug for the coolant temp sensor ( where the lower radiator hose attaches to the block) and the fan should run when the car is running. If all else fails, you should have your cooling system pressure tested as this could be a blown head gasket.

On my 1997 honda accord lx the temperature gauge goes up to the red and the fan does not kick on,but the car does not overheat.what is going on?

If you gauge is readin g that high, you are over heating, maybe not to the point of engine shut down or hose failure. I suspect the thermo sensor that is mounted in the radiator is not operating, therefo causing the cooling fan not to function at high temps.
I recommend you have this checked quickly.

The cooling fan doesnt work on my 91 honda accord

  1. Cooling fan Relay
  2. Engine temp Sensor
  3. Cooling fan itself
  4. If While A/C is on Fan does not come on I would Check Fan By unplugging it first than apply Pos+ and Neg- to it if it comes on that's eliminated Then go to step 1-3 one of them is bad I usually replace Engine temp sensors no mater what they are Crucial components for the safety of the Engine.

Car is overhaeating

did the mechanic that said that the fans assembly didn't work check out the fan switch? it is a sensor like a temp sensor that switches the fan on and off when the temp goes up in the engine.
did the mechanic tell you that the fans was working now? can you hear the fan come on when the engine temp rises? if not , it could be the switch or if the fan worked after the mechanic replaced it, it could be a wiring problem. possible faulty ground.

Coolant doesn't heat up!
