It COULD mean a blown head gasket. Have it checked out.

You can get a diagram of your 1987 Honda Accord cooling system at most Honda dealerships. Honda service manuals will also have the cooling system diagram and can be obtained from most local libraries.

there should be a air valve on the engine that you can bleed the bubbles out of the cooling system.

No. If you are getting air bubbles in the cooling system, you probaby have a bad head gasket or a cracked head.

That would depend on what problems you are having.

Bleed valve is located on top of thermostat housing.

Air bubbles in the cooling systems usually means that the head gasket has gone out. As with most auto mobiles, air in the cooling system means exhaust is getting into the cooling system through a break in the head gasket. A break has probably occurred between the cylinder ring on the gasket and on the pressure stoke is passing through to the water port in the block at the top of the cylinder between the head and the cylinder indicating a break has occurred in the gasket.

Remove the radiator cap on a cold engine. Turn the heater to hot. Make sure the radiator is full. Start the engine and watch for air bubbles escaping from the radiator. Add coolant to keep it full. When you see no more air bubbles all air has been removed.

Probably a blown head gasket - but these also have an EGR cooler that if damaged could cause the same thing. Check the cooler first it could be pushing exhaust into the cooling system.

With an evacuation pump; adequate hand operated models are available at the parts store.

Have the cooling system pressure tested. White smoke out the exhaust that has a sweet smell. Constant air bubbles in cooling system reservoir. A milky brown substance showing up on the engine oil dipstick or crankcase breather.

The cooling system is bled using the bleeder screw found on the thermostat housing. To find the thermostat housing on a 1998 Honda Civic follow the lower radiator hose to its outlet. While the cooling system is running loosen the bleed valve. When bubbles stop coming out the system has been bled.

Listed in your owner's manual. They are located on the highest point of the cooling system.

1986 Honda Accord starter is located on the passenger's side, on top of the transmission, under several cooling system hoses. Follow the positive cable from the battery and it will lead you to the starter. Drew

If you see bleeder valves on the cooling system use them to bleed the system. Otherwise, remove the radiator cap, turn the heater control to hot, start the engine, keep the coolant topped off, and watch until no more air bubbles are escaping.

User Avatar

not easy to get to. not even worth trying. just run the car with the cap off let it work out the bubbles, top it off , repeat until no more bubbles.

User Avatar

the screw on thermostat housing. loosen up and add fluid till no more air bubbles come out then tighten down

User Avatar

Just keep the reservoir filled to the right line and the cooling system should take care of the air bubbles after a while, provided that the radiator cap is sealed for both pressure AND vacuum.

An average life of a system cooling device is around 10 to 15 years. This is with cont use of the system cooling device, if you do not use the cooling system then you can prolong your cooling system for a couple more years.

If there is no cooling system, the engin will overheat.

User Avatar

It sounds like your cooling system is pressurised. Check for a blown head gasket by removing the radiator cap while engine is warm and running. Look for air bubbles. If there is air bubbles, overhaul the top end of the engine.

User Avatar

The valve is on the passenger side of the car follow the lower radiator hose back to the thermostat housing and it be top

User Avatar

It is cooling the engine off. Your Honda may be running slightly hot. I suggest you service the cooling system. Drain, flush, replace the thermostat, install a 50/50 mix of antifreeze & distilled water, bleed air from system.
