1990 Honda Prelude Overheating

Installed new thermostat and that didn't take care of the problem. Putting in a new water pump today and I hope that works. Any suggestions if the water pump doesn't work. I read to drill a couple of holes in the thermostat or take it off completely until winter. Can I really do either of these?

Taking the thermostat out would be an overall bad idea because the coolant will flow too fast and it will not have a chance to be cooled down by the radiator.

I have a 90 Honda Prelude si and steam is coming from the over flow tank, but its not showing hot on the gauge.


Sounds like you are having a thermostat problem. It sounds like it is sticking at times and you may also have a bad temp. sensor. At times, if the thermostat sticks in the closed position, the sensor in the outlet side of the t-stat housing will not read the proper engine temp..Next time it gives you problems, lift the hood and carefully check the temp. of both of the water hoses to the radiator. If the top hose feels hot and the lower hose is only warm, then the t-stat. is stuck in the closed position and needs to be replaced.

1990 prelude si wont start battery is good plugs are good d-cap is good it overheated and died i managed to get it started and now it wont start could it be my thermostat is bad?


If you overheated it, and then drove it long enough that the engine died, Your engine hay have a bad head gasket, or the engine is now bad. .fill up the coolant in the radiator (water) leave the cap off, and try to crank the engine up, if it tries to push the water out, the engine is bad. A bad thermostat isnt going to keep it from running, although it may be bad also.

Engine runs very hot


check if the rad fan is running optimally. Also, check the interval wherein the rad fan turns on and off.. usually, rad fan should be on most of the time... if it constantly turns off.. your thermostat is probably busted

HOW TO CHANGE THE WATER PUMP


There is no easy way, the water pump is driven off the camshaft belt, you must pull the timing cover to remove the belt, line up all the timing marks before you remove the belt, don't reuse the belt.
