Honda Accord LX

What specifically do the two temperature sensors control that are located on the upper and lower radiator hose engine housings of a 1996 Honda Accord LX 4-cylinder?

One sensor is connected to the dashboard temperature gauge to provide information to the driver. The other sensor is connected to the vehicle's computer (or ECU) which uses the information to enrich fuel-air mixture during cold starts and during warm-up and to speed up the idle for smooth running while the engine is cold.

The radiator is located beneathe a plastic cover in front of the engine, between the headlight housings. Follow the upper radiator hose to locate it.

Any plasic parts cannot be repaired. The radiator and and thermostate housings are easy repairs. The bypass tube in the rear requires the intake system to be removed.

The answer is that if your water temperature is to high that is when your cars radiator is about to die.

A radiator is a type of heating device. An object will normally be a net radiator of energy when it's temperature is higher than its surroundings.

The symbol used on the Renault Scenic for a problem with the radiator is a thermometer. There should also be a temperature gauge on the dash that shows the current temperature of the radiator fluid.

I dont know specifically but follow the upper radiator hose to engine block, it will be very close to this point.

It is in the front of the radiator area clipped to the radiator support.

The coolant temperature is measured by the sensor that is screwed in to the engine next to where the upper radiator hose attaches.

The temperature of the water will vary on any vehicle with speed, including on the Taurus. The more an engine runs, the higher the water temperature will be in the radiator. If the radiator is overheating, then there could be a malfunction with a temperature sensor, a leaky hose, or damage to the radiator.

Higher than the temperature of the surrounding environment.

A thermoswitch is the device by the radiator, that switches on the fan as soon as the engine/ radiator reaches a set temperature

I check radiator fan, and relays and they are good, what can be a problem when my car reaches temperature to open termostat radiator fan does not work

The coolant temperature sensor is the two wire sensor near to where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine. The outside/ambient temperature sensor is behind the front bumper, in front of the radiator.

I am told it is behind the front grill on the Ranger (Thunder / Wildcat). More specifically either mounted in front of the Radiator or in other cases near to /or below the LHS front headlamp.

Its located on the radiator passanger side about 3" below the radiator cap.

no it can't. the radiator core support on a 94-98 are the same, but ford changed over during the 99-04 model years to a design that angled back on the ends to accomodate the newer design headlight housings.

A thermostatic radiator valve is a valve that is connected to the hot water heating system. It can control the room temperature by regulating the amount of water that goes into the radiator. The valve is able to control this by sensing the temperature of the air.

It is located on the bottom of the radiator

Measures the temperature of the water in your engine block, usually right where the water comes in from the radiator.

The Fiat Punto has a radiator which receives coolant in order to keep the temperature down. The diagram of this radiator can be found in the owner's manual.

Gasoline doesn't go in a radiator. Radiator is used to cool a 200+ degree engine block. If mixed the better question is at what temperature does gasoline ignite.
