Something caused the last radiator to blow and will end up with the same result if not fixed. The most common is simple lack of cooling system maintenance. If you have a leak and let it go you end up with air pockets in the lines and overheats car for sure. Fix any leaks no matter how small they seem. Let idle and see if fans kick on by themselves, if starts to overheat and fans not coming on then the relay controlled by the ECM is bad. Replace. The fan can be bad but most imports have two and obviously both wouldn't fail at the same time. To rid of air, while car is cool, remove cap and helps to park slightly aimed uphill, run with the cap on but loose or the way I like to do is use a funnel that's perfectly into the cap opening and run. Once all air is out the coolant rises. Let cool, remove funnel, fill if needed, cap on. Drive a bit, let cool, check level again and add if needed. Of course make sure reservoir is to fill line. The reason I don't mention water pump or thermostat is because if either failed the hot coolant wouldn't travel through the radiator to begin with.

Did you replace the thermostat? If not replace it and then have a pressure test run on the cooling system. Also make sure the fan is coming on when it should. If you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak and see white smoke out the exhaust then suspect a blown head gasket.

I just replaced the starter on my daughters 1996 Honda Accord it started overheating and shutting off she put antifreeze in the radiator but it continued to smoke and shut off again now it won't s


If the smoke is white ,it's water (head or gasket)
Timing belt will shut it off completely.
Can't see any way the starter could have anything to do with it.
However if it has a head gasket problem,hydrostatic lock can
make a good starter look bad(,water will not compress like air)
so if there is water in a cylinder the engine won't turn over.
If a head gasket is bad there will be white smoke out the
tailpipe and bubbles coming out of the radiator (cap off while
cold)

1996 honda accord leaking yellow fluid


Is it greenish yellow? Determine the location of the leak to find your problem. Could be: weep hole on the water pump, hose to and from heater core, radiator, one of two large radiator hoses, faulty radiator cap, cracked reservoir. If it's the water pump it will be near your belt(s) area on the driver's side of the motor.

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISSION OIL INTO ON THE ACCORD 1996adn what grad of oil please for the engine.what is it when yo get light brown oilly substance in the water container at the side of the rad.


put honda brand transmission fluid in the transmission fluid dipstick hole, if this is a 4cylinder, use 2.5 quarts to fill, if 6, use 3 quarts. if you are getting brown oilly substance in the radiator fluid reservoir, this usually means you have a blown head gasket, are you having overheating problems. try draining and filling your radiator with new fluid.

You got it... most likely the head gasket...

Other symptoms:
1. White smoke out the tailpipe and excessive water dripping out of it.
2. With radiator cap OFF and car running, there will be frequent bursts of steam and water (careful! it may be violent).
3. Oil dipstick will have a "milky" goo ... that's water mixed with oil.
4. Overheating can be alleviated in an emergency by running with a "loosened" radiator cap.

Check cylinder compression to confirm that two adjacent cylinders have low, and nearly the same pressure. That confirms blown head gasket.

Hope this helps!

NEED TO REPLACE WATER PUMP


if you go to your local library most do carry the manuals and you can copy the info you need.
difficult.. yes. extremely difficult...no
if you decide to do it make sure you use 1/2 drive breaker bar on crank pulley if your lower timing cover cannot be moved far enough to access the water pump mounting bolts. also make sure you don't turn the timing gear when removing the belt or replacing it.
hope this will help you.
