definitely gettin hot...fan ok? look at the oil filler cap...is the oil inside the CAP MILKY?? if so then headgasket...but due to the year and model, I'm guessing head gasket...also flush the radiator, make certain it flows well...
everyone should have a shop manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual(wiring diagrams and more detailed info) available in the reference section for FREE....make copies of the right sections, and fix it like a PRO!!good luckDave :)
My 2000 would overheat at idle; in park & slow traffic. Ran normal on the highway. I 1st replaced the fan relay everyone has been blogging about, engine still overheated. Next attempt for victory, I replaced the temp sensor switch; defeated again. I then replaced the thermostat & haven't had a overheating incident since.
Why dose my 232i overheating
It could be but most likely the engine is overheating. Could also be that the cap is not holding pressure and needs to be replaced.
are the cooling fans coming on
Probably a cracked head.
check for clogged fuel filter,or bad fuel pump
Is your fan coming on?
have the head gasket replaced
I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994. That was the last thing I replaced after replacing the water pump, thermostat, and replaced my fan with a clutch fan. have not had anymore problems with it overheating once the radiator was replaced. Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.
IF IT WAS NOT OVERHEATING BEFORE THE HOSE WAS REPLACED -- MORE THAN LIKELY YOU HAVE AIR POCKETS TRAPPED IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM
did you have your ignition coil replaced? the signs are that the ignition coil is overheating thus you are able to restart after an hour, when the coil cools. also check if your ignition coil has a resistor. if it has, have it checked for continuity. did you have your ignition coil replaced? the signs are that the ignition coil is overheating thus you are able to restart after an hour, when the coil cools. also check if your ignition coil has a resistor. if it has, have it checked for continuity.
Water pump defective.
brilliant, the thermostat is backwards
Reasons your 1999 Honda Accord is overheating can include a leak in the water hose, a blown head gasket, or the radiator cap needs to be replaced.
I just replaced the thermostat and gave the coolant system a flush and replaced the prestone. Seems to have done the job.
The regulator is in the engine computer not the alternator.
If it has failed, then yes.
It is old and needs flushed and replaced.
It could just be that the water pump is not properly working. Have you checked all the could-be causes for your car overheating if not then do so.
flash the bios. Duhh
can the gasket go bad behind the water pump houseing
your thermostat is closed. needs to be replaced. inexpensive part but can save your engine from overheating.
I replaced the head and works ok now
