My 1996 honda accord doesnt heat up like it suppose to..unless its juss parked without any movement.. I drive it 2 miles away and it still doesnt heat up im concerned !! Any help ????


Thermostat stuck open?
Faulty temp sensor or gauge?
If heat comes out of the heater, engine thermostat is ok. That will isolate it to probably the temp sensor in the temp indication system (sensor & gauge).
The cooling system should be full. Temp sensors cannot read the engine temperature of steam or empty cooling galleries.

Most defiantly could be a bad heat sensor, I have had a bad one out of the box..It would tell the computer it's hot even if you can test that it's not. The computer would tell the AC to shut down to keep the engine from overheating. Maybe ECM or ground..
Good Luck

My 99 ford f150 pu can sit for 30 to 40 min warming up to operating temp then I leave for work and go aproximatley 15 to 20 miles and loose heater then the engine over heats. After a few min it boils over...


Change the thermostat. The thermostat might be opening too late to circulate. From doing so the coolant is just sitting there getting hotter and hotter which would cause overheating until the stuck thermostat decides to open. I would bring the car to a safe temperature and feel the radiator hoses if one is hot and the other isn't? You have a thermostat problem. Easy fix and cheap. I wouldn't run the vehicle too long until you fix it.

Is there any way to get heat faster in the morning? Even if I start the car and run it for a few minutes, I have to drive it a few miles to get any heat out of it.


have the thermostat checked and make sure the heater core is flowing. it may have a problem, or just be normal? is the temp gauge reading normal temp, or colder than it used too.

My 2003 Explorer overheats when I turn the A/C on.


Q: Temp starts to climb by how much? If the vehicle interior is hot"over 90" , keep in mind the heat in the vehicle is being absorbed by the a/c and carrued out to the "condensor" in front of the engine radiator. Engine temp should be expected to climb somewhat. As the interior cools down the less heat is taken to the font and forced through the engine radiator. It should peak out ,then staer deopping or stabilize. On initial entry of vehicle on hot days it would help to open the windows for a mile or so to purge excessive heat from passenger compartmentw/AC OFF. OUTSIDE CAN BE 90 AND THE INTERIOR OF A CLOSED UP VEHICLE CAN CLIMB TO 120 DEGREES + mID 80'S IS HANDLED WITH GREATER EASE FOR A COMBINATION OF TECHNICAL REASONS OF WHICH WOULD BORE YOU.It sounds like all is well so be cool(pun) and don't waist money chasing a ghost. Happy trails. Oh, The auxillary fan is good to speeds up to 35 mph. Above 35 the forced air from the vehcle speed does the fans job.

Hello;
Could be a combination of things. First replace the thermostat with a new one. Then backflush the system, that should fix ya right up. Hope this helps, Thanks;

1996 eagle vision over heating


look for leaks on the passenger side!!!! also this car has a "air pocket" you need to find the bleed off screw on the upper hose fitting on the engine and bleed it when filling up with coolant
