Well, an old hose can bust for several reasons. Would assume that the temperature change from driving raised pressure enough that a weakened portion finally broke. As for the fans, check fuses and connections, then verify voltage going to the fan. If there is voltage and it is still not working, you have a bad fan.

Why my 1993 acura legend blow's cold air but not hot air,the AC works fine.The cooland level is good too.What can ido to fix this? too cold to drive the car like this,please help...


It sounds as though your heater core is stopped up, have someone intelligent to drain your radiator and catch the antifreeze because of animals drinking it, it will kill the animal, then flush the radiator & heater core with a flush designed to cleanse the system, follow directions from flush manufacturer, then put the correct amount of antifreeze in your radiator. Wal-Mart or any parts place will have this in different brands. This may help, it did on my 1998 mercury Mystique.i hope this helps you
P.s. Just follow directions on the flush container & this can be done by the do-it yourselfer
Make sure you allow the engine to cool before pouring the new antifreeze into the radiator, could burst your engine block.

Antifreeze leak on 2002 pt cruiser


Check your electric radiator cooling fan I have replaced them for seizing up. If it can'nt cool the radiator car will overheat.

I have a 91 acura legend and when i drive thick white smoke comes out of the pipes and from under my passenger back door what can this be? it also smells like anti-freeze


that is because it is antifreeze. you have a failed gasket or cracked block and the antifreeze is getting into the combustion chambers and then puffed out the exhaust. this is very bad and needs a fix immediately.

93 acura legend doesnt run hot for a few days after i add coolant, then it starts to run hot, its low on coolant, i smell coolant sometimes, but i never see it on the ground, no water in the oil, or steam...


Could be water pump yes. Look where the water pump shaft is and see right behind where the shaft enters the pump and see if you see a small hole on either side of the pump. See if there is any anti-freeze coming out of the that hole or anywhere around the water pump housing. If you see anti-freeze coming out then the pump is probably bad and needs to be changed. You could also be loosing it from the heater core although most of the time you will notice a substance on your inner side of windshield that when you try and clean it only smears. Looks like a film on the windshield inside of the car. You will also smell anti-freeze pretty strongly inside of the car especially when you use your heater.
