3 weeks ago you found the upper radiator hose almost completely squeezed in on itself so you replaced the thermostat and upper hose!Also, the cooling system has been flushed and refilled and the cap has been replaced! Could be a partially plugged radiator. Flushing will not always take care of this. I would check the thermostat in a pot of water and thermometer prior to install. I have installed faulty new thermostats. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. thermostat in upside down ? spring should be in the block dying fuel pump

Car overheating and no heat?

No thermostat, no coolant, no waterpump. Basically you have no coolant circulating.

If you are replacing a water pump will this stop a car from overheating?

Replacing a bad water pump can help to stop a motor from overheating. Hopefully that was the cause of the overheating. If it does not stop the overheating, try replacing the thermostat. Make sure you have the proper mix of antifreeze and water, the radiator filled with it. Check the level of coolant FIRST. Next, the hoses, and third the thermostat. Then, disconnect a hose and see if, by starting the vehicle, if there's water pressure. If not, its water pump time!

How know if you need to change your thermostat on a 1993 Honda Accord?

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.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.
