Question about 1993 Honda Accord

3 Answers

Honda Jazz (Fit in USA) overheating in 15 to 20 miles. It's not the water pump, or the radiator, or the thermostat. Could it be the head gasket?

    Hi, it's not the fan, that cuts in just fine, working on the theory that the radiator is blocked. You see the overheating light only comes on when the engine is up to temp and you hit 70mph, otherwise you can drive for miles at a lower speed.

    Thanks for your help though.

    you said you changed your water pump correct when you put the belt back on did you put it back on correctly cause a water pump will not work right if the belt is on backwards

Fans only come on at very slow speeds or while stoped, otherwise the air flow is enough to cool the water. so the big question is, are you loosing water? if so from where? id check the following. either A get under the car or B reach down on the driver side (the side of the engine with your timing belt) down to where the water pump is and feel the over flow valve, if water is coming from their its your water pump(this is bad very expensive repair, you have to replace a LOT of stuff). also their should be a metal pipe that goes into your water pump/tempature sensor check the o rings to see if they are leaking(or as in my case i had a pin hole in the pipe itself). Check the fins on your radiator to see if they are damaged.

also if its the head gasket this is an easy thing to check. pull your oil dipstick if the oil is watery this is your issue(and also expensive)

It might that the cooling fan is not functioning. may be a blown fuse or it might also be that the motor of the fan is burned out.

My honda cr-v 1999 is overheating how do I check the water pump is working?


the water pump will be working
what won't be working if fitted is
the viscous fan hub
radiator fans ,
coolant temperature sensor
fan relaypressure test the cooling system to check for cracked plastic tanks of the radiator
fan fuses
blocked radiator cores
thermostat
head gasket
so if the fan is driven by a belt then replace the viscous fan hub
have a compression test done to check head gasket
have an auto electrician check the cooling system electronics and fans
have a specialist radiator shop do a flow test on the radiator and have an accredited service shop check the operation of the thermostat

Can my 2003 kia spectra run without thermostat


Clarify your question. If it is overheating with the new radiator, how badly?. bubbles in the overflow tank?
Jack up front and take cap off and burp radiator overnight.
One suspects air bubbles, or the wrong water thermostat not opening for whatever reason.ensure water thermostat has a hole drilled through it

If its the electronic 'fan' thermostat, you are addressing the symptom not the problem. If the car has 300kms/150K miles, could be a head gasket leak - exhaust to water. Check radiator fluid for traces of exhaust gas.

Ususally when the heater blows hot air only when the car is at hight RPM is because low coolant in the system. It sounds like a bad thermostat . In the worst case you need to do a diagnostic check to the head gasket. Because the first thing to get blowen out when the car over heat are the head gasket.

I've intrepid car has overheating problem has thermostat, working water pump, and keeps overheating


Might be blown head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Either of these would tell you that.
Also the exhust can get into the coolant and make the coolant low all the time.
I had two Chrysler products that the exhaust forced coolant out and had a bad head gasket.

1996 Honda Passport overheating



It sounds like it may be a stopped up radiator or a possible blown head gasket. You need to take it to a repair shop and have the radiator flow checked and also check for the presence of hydrocarbons in the coolant which would indicate a possible blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head.

Overheating problem


I would go with slowcalafl. It is either air, or a cracked head bad head gasket. Remove the radiator cap when cool. Start up the car and watch for bubble emerging from the coolant. If it continues to bubble, you have a bad head or head gasket. If not, look for improper timing as another possibility.
