If you replaced some of theses already ignore and go down the line # Not enough coolant # Water pump drivebelt defective or out of adjustment # Radiator core blocked or grille restricted # Thermostat faulty # Electric cooling fans blades broken or cracked # Radiator cap not maintaining proper pressure # Ignition timing incorrect

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.


Be care-full my radiator blew up and burnt me. I replaced Radiator, thermostat, and water pump. Timing belt is in the way so I replaced it too. OK Now



Blown head gastet, radiator leaking, thermostat needs to be replaced Blown head gastet, radiator leaking, thermostat needs to be replaced


did you replace radiator hoses i have seen hoses collapse and cause overheating while driving and radiator could be clogged. also did you bleed your cooling system according to owners manual


If the radiator or reservoir cap is bad it could cause overheating because the system will not build up the proper pressure. Also the fan clutch could be worn out which would keep the fan from spinning fast enough to cool the radiator.


IF IT WAS NOT OVERHEATING BEFORE THE HOSE WAS REPLACED -- MORE THAN LIKELY YOU HAVE AIR POCKETS TRAPPED IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM



overheating 94 Honda accordFirst you should check if your radiator has water and coolant, if not just fill it up to the appropriate level. Second it may also be your cooling fan relay or sensor if your fans do not turn on. Third which might the most expensive, your radiator maybe needs to be replaced.


your thermostat is closed. needs to be replaced. inexpensive part but can save your engine from overheating.


If you have replaced the water pump then flush the radiator with CLR also check to see if the fan is working properly.


you might want to check for a blown head gasket or a cracked head or block. espically if it loosing water out of the radiator with out leaking on the ground.


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 had replaced the water pump and radiator. This had continued to overheat but not as bad. After replacing the head gasket it was finally fixed. I was able to answer my own question only after replacement.


my niece's was overheating I replaced the radiator cap and it hasn't happened since FYI


check your radiator. is it clean or does it need to be replaced? a simple cleaning cured my problem.





In general, engine thermostats can be found by following the LOWER radiator hose to where it attaches to the engine. The hose is typically attached to a fitting behind which is a gasket and the thermostat. The gasket needs to be replaced when the thermostat is replaced.


Is the cooling fan[s] coming on? is the radiator full of coolant ?does the engine have a blown head gasket or cracked head? Why did it need a radiator?



After 10 years radiator may be plugged or restricted - try to flush or boil out May need replacement



Well ive had the same priblem. We have got new radiator and cap. Then replaced thermostat then water pump. No more problems.
