I've seen this happen in Honda's. Does it remain running for long periods of time or never shut off? If it is only running for a short time, it's cooling off your engine still because it's still really hot. There's nothing wrong with this.

What is the name of the sensor that screws into the thermostat housing for a 1991 Honda accord ex?

The sensor on the thermostat housing is a cooling fan switch. Cooling fan switch closes the circuit to engage the cooling fan(s) when the optimum temperature is reached. When not replaced, cooling system fans will either remain continually "on" or not function causing the engine to overheat, internal engine damage and/or temperature light illumination.

Why does a 1996 1500 have no power to fuel pump?

If you don't start the engine, electrical power is only sent to the fuel pump for a few seconds after turning on the key. That often makes it difficult to trace down the problem. If the engine starts, the fuel pump will remain on, but there is no need to be sending fuel to an engine that isn't running.

Do aeroplanes park in the air?

No, not really. The closer you can get to that is with a Vtol aeroplane (like the harrier) which can stand like a helicopter on engine power alone (without lift from the wings). However, these are few, and can't usually remain like that for long. As an example, the harrier can only remain hovering for one and a half minute, as in that position the engine refrigeration is assured by water cooling (as there is no airflow) and the water tanks only carry enough water for that time period.

Is the 97 maxima radiator hose has to b very hard even the engine is not over heat?

usually after the car has had a chance to cool down, the hose should be "spongey" when it is grasped, but after attaining operating temperature, the hose should become firm as the cooling system presurizes up. it will remain so, again, until the engine/cooling system cools down. Dont ever open the radiator cap when the engine has been run to operating temperature or not had a chance to cool down adequately, the pressurized system is very hot and you risk serious injury!!!

Can an airplane fly with one engine?

Flying with one engine is difficult. An experienced pilot can only do it. The plane rolls to the direction in which the good engine is running. So the pilot has to give a constant opposite direction force to keep the plane steady.Depends. Some only have one and fly well with that. Some will be able to remain airborne on one engine, but will need more to take off.

Why cooling a gas will eventualy cause it to condense into a liquid?

When cooling, gas particles lose kinetic energy and eventually become attracted together to form a liquid.They don't have enough kinetic energy to remain free in the gaseous state.

Why do the heater blower stays on when you turn the engine off?

What you are likely hearing is the electric fan that cools the radiator and Air Conditioning condenser. This is likely remaining on to remove excess heat from the engine coolant to prevent a boil over after shutting down. When the engine is shut down heat continues to be transferred into the coolant for a period of time. You should also notice that when the Air Conditioner is turned on in the car that the radiator cooling fan will remain on continuously. This is necessary to cool the heat exchanger(condenser coils) that remove heat from the freon in Air Conditioning system. When the Air Conditioning is not on the cooling fan will activate only when necessary, which is when the engine coolant rises above a temperature that is too hot to cool the engine.
