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
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.
Is your fan coming on?
Blown head gastet, radiator leaking, thermostat needs to be replaced Blown head gastet, radiator leaking, thermostat needs to be replaced
IF IT WAS NOT OVERHEATING BEFORE THE HOSE WAS REPLACED -- MORE THAN LIKELY YOU HAVE AIR POCKETS TRAPPED IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM
Inoperative radiator fans, bad water pump, failed headgasket?
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.
If you have replaced the water pump then flush the radiator with CLR also check to see if the fan is working properly.
Water pump defective.
your thermostat is closed. needs to be replaced. inexpensive part but can save your engine from overheating.
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.
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.
check your fan clutch if its weak it will overheat
check your radiator. is it clean or does it need to be replaced? a simple cleaning cured my problem.
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.
my niece's was overheating I replaced the radiator cap and it hasn't happened since FYI
did you check the radiator or the head gasket?
changing the valve cover gasket will not fix an over heating problem u need to check out the cooling system. Radiator, water pump, hoses, belts
radiator fan, head gasket,
Sometimes air bubbles get in the radiator after lines or the radiator have been removed. Just run it with the radiator cap open, until the fluid starts circulating ( the temp gauge will drop to normal). You can also see the coolant fluid start moving inside the radiator which by the way is a little hard to see since it will be bubbling from running about ten minutes. Watch your temp gauge make sure you don't let it overheat for a very long time. Did you put it in backward? There really is a right and wrong way on those things. no, it wasnt put on backward.... ============================================================================= no, it wasnt put on backward....
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.
have you checked the fan
