What else can you do to your 1991 Honda if it is still overheating by the time you go a mile if you have changed the radatior and the thermostat?
1) ONE THING YOU COULD TRY IS CHANGING THE RADIATOR CAP...IF IT'S BAD THE CAR WILL BOIL OVER AND APPEAR TO BE ALWAYS OVERHEATED WHEN ALL THAT'S REALLY WRONG IS THE LACK OF PROPER BACK PRESSURE DUE TO AN OLD/DEFECTIVE RADIATOR CAP. 2) IF THAT DOESN'T WORK YOU COULD TAKE THE THERMOSTAT OUT AND TRY DRIVING THE CAR WITHOUT IT IN AND SEE IF THE CAR RUNS LONGER BEFORE OVERHEATING...IF IT DOES THEN THE THERMOSTAT IS STICKING. THE THERMOSTAT COULD ALSO BE UPSIDE DOWN...IF IT IS IT WON'T WORK RIGHT. email@example.com You might also check the timing.If it is retarded due to a bad timing chain or needing a tune up this will cause overheating.
When 1990 Honda is running cooling fan does not come on but comes on when shut off thermostat and temperature switch changed?
Replace it with the exact same temperature thermostat as the one you removed. Do not run the engine without a thermostat. The thermostat is required to keep the engine running at the optimum temperature that will give the best performance and mileage. If it is overheating running it without a thermostat is not the solution.
Several possibilities - from easiest to most expensive: Faulty or inoperable radiator cooling fan - causing overheating. Faulty thermostat - causing overheating. Water pump failure - causing overheating. Blown head gasket - allowing exhaust gasses to escape into the cooling system and expelling the coolant.
Your 1997 Honda passport is overheating How do you diagnose what the problem is to make the proper repairs?
If the car is overheating or if the temperature gauge is not coming up to normal operating temperature which is normally half way up the gauge then the thermostat needs replacing. As the water pump should be replaced at the same time as the cam belt every 90,000 miles, you should also replace the thermostat and coolant.
Have you changed the thermostat lately? I did and mine still ran very warm, but didn't over heat completely. After looking at several sensors and relays I changed the thermostat again (Honda part this time) and it fixed it. I was told by the Honda parts guy that the after market parts do not let enough coolant flow to allow the fan sensor to work properly. So you have a resticted thermostat flow along with…
Why does the a 2003 Honda civic ex continue to overheat after replacing a thermostat water pump and radiator cap?
Replacing the thermostat in a 2000 Honda CR V is very simple. The thermostat is on the right hand side of the engine. The radiator hose will need to be disconnected before the thermostat can be taken off. After the hose is off, remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing in place. Take the old thermostat out and replace with a new one.
Run a compression test to see if overheating has damaged the engine. All cylinders should have somewhere near 100PSI compression, but whatever it is, all should have similar compression. If any are significantly different, you've probably warped the head resulting in a damaged headgasket. That's the most common problem that is caused by overheating. If you don't have one or more cylinders with low compression, just try a computer diagnostic scan to see what kind…
