Radiator fans

It may be your relay! A way of checking is unplug the fan and put a test light on the plug itself with a/c running and if it doesnt have any power going to the fan with a/c on then your a/c fan relay is probably bad!

Antifreeze is not circulating through radiator. Radiator is new - 2 months old. Also, no heat and fast idle.

Problem is not your radiator--unfortunate for you. It's more likely the water pump. The water pump pumps the water around through your radiator to be cooled and then through the engine block to cool your motor. Before you go tearing the water pump out though, you may want to check to see if your fan belt is in good condition and working properly because the water pump works off of the fan belt turning the pulley to pump the water around. If the fan belt is off that pulley, it may need to be put back on or re-routed correctly to start pumping the water.

Then if that is not your problem, the water pump will probably need to be replaced. I believe it can be accessed from underneath the engine compartment, but first you will have to take the tension off the fan belt and remove the belt, then loosen the bolts around the front of the water pump. Put a catch pan under the car though because all your water/antifreeze will come gushing out. That water pump should be available at your local AutoZone or another auto parts store for around $100.

Over heating , no water in oil , no oil in water

fan clutch could be bad if it doesnt have electric fans. thermostat could be stuck shut. water pump may be bad s the impeller inside can come loose from the shaft the belt drives. dont drive until fixed as any new motor noise is sign of potential internal motor damage and may lead to engine failure.

of course thats the problem. if you had a manual on the pt you will find that this is a pressurized system and just water without antifreeze changes the boiling point. Flush the systen and put the correct amount of antifreeze in, and replace the radiator cap with a 12-18lb cap.

temp sender unit may be faulty! as this activates the fan!
Check thermostat & hoses & their clamps aswell! as you may have a leak somewhere.
check if oil is clean & not milky!
milkyness indicates head gasket leak or warped or cracked head!

Changed thermostat,flushed radiator,fan comes on but it takes a long time,car temp guage goes all the way up to H(hot) until i turn heater on full blast then goes back to normal temp????

have you try to change oil? some times engine heat does' not just come from malfunctioning of the cooling system . But sometimes its the oil that runs to the engine . if the engine oil is dirty already it could also cause the engine to over heat. do to change the engine oil of your Acura Legend.

We are having the same problem. It has been pressure tested and there are no leaks in rad or hoses. With the fan not coming on we are over heating and the water is boiling over in the reserve. When I put the the knob over to the defrost the fan comes on. I was told to get the thermostat changed which is something you can do yourself. I was wondering if there are two thermostats, one for the fan and one for the rad
