If that doesn't work, you may have to take the door trim pad off and lube the linkage inside the door.
The thermostat is just under the throttle assembly at the front of the engine. You will need to remove a black plastic shield in order to access it. Is it difficult to remove and replace? Should that job cost $100? Would a failing thermostat cause the radiator to crack,leak and overheat on my 1991 Acura?
The most common cause of overheating is a thermostat stuck in the closed position. However, other causes are: faulty water pump, clogged radiator, clogged hose(s), coolant leak or a broken drive belt. I had a 1987 legend with around 160K that was overheating. Antifreeze would boil out of the overflow. I changed my radiator and it fixed the problem.
