Where is the coolant drain plug on the engine block of a 1988 Honda Accord V-Tec engine?
I don't think v-tec was avaible in 1988 Well the problem you're going to run into while looking for a drain plug on an 88' vTec engine is..... they did not make a vTec block in 88', they made vtec in 92 or 94 in the f22 and f23a blocks, sohc VTEC. Sorry, maybe you should stick to carbeurators and 2.o non vtec thrills, you couldn't handle the Bseries BEOUCH
1994 Honda accord and the radiator was cracked and i replaced it and bled the air out It is now running hot when the car is in idle and it doesn't seem to run hot when i am driving?
Had the same problem on my 1991 accord. Replace the thermostat, gasket, and radiator cap. Also, get a gallon of coolant if your current coolant has been in there for more than three years. The thermostat is in the engine block. Simply drain coolant, remove the radiator hose from the engine - the hose that goes from the bottom of the radiator into the engine. There may also be a small spount that bolts into…
Its job is to block the flow of coolant to the radiator until the engine has warmed up. When the engine is cold, no coolant flows through the engine. Once the engine reaches its operating temperature (generally about 200 degrees F, 95 degrees C), the thermostat opens. By letting the engine warm up as quickly as possible, the thermostat reduces engine wear, deposits and emissions.
The Coolant Drain Plug for a 1997 Honda Accord LX 4cyl is at the bottom of the Radiator on the left side, if you were facing the Vechiel. It if stock it looks like a Black Medal Wingnut, unless different Drain Plug was put in by previous Owner. The block drain is an 8mm plug next to the oil filer on a 94 Accord LX 2.2L. 94-97 might be the same. There is a 10mm…
I had to replace my block heater on my 89 Accord and the plug/location for the heater is in behind the distributor. I had to remove the distributor from the engine block and then removed the old block heater. It is an easy do it yourself job but you have to be carefull to reinstall the distributor exactly the same way it came out. .
http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=1065831 This is slightly close up so it's difficult to see in relation to the engine bay. Also this is a civic not an accord, but they are similar designs most likely. The physical location in on the passenger side of the engine. Either connected to or bolted slightly above the engine block.
What causes an antifreeze leak towards the bottom of the engine block on a 1991 Honda Civic hatchback?
Please see and earlier question and answer re: Where is the transmission dipstick on 1990 Honda Accord LX. It may answer your question. By the way, answer is: The dipstick is located at front of transmission, next to the engine block. There is NO TUBE and the dipstick is small - look crefully! Hank.
yes in a way. block heaters heat the coolant in the block there for warming the block up. coolant heaters heat the coolant out side the engine like in the hoses and radiater. and when the coolant gets hot enough it opens the thermosate and starts flowing through the engine..The coolant heater should be hooked into the engine so that it heats only the engine and the heater core. If the coolant heater is trying…
Kind of. There are water jackets inside the engine block and usually the heads of a liquid-cooled engine Water (or coolant) will either flow from the block to the head to the radiator, or from the radiator through the head to the block (a reverse flow design). The latter is better because it cools the heads first and helps prevent detonation. It also reduces thermal shock to the engine block.
