Blown head gasket, wrapped or cracked head. Can also possibly be Transmission Fluid, entering due to a leak within the radiator.
No, the 2005 Honda Accord 2.4 L 4-cylinder uses a chain and does not use a belt. The chain is designed to last the life of the engine and is normally replaced during a complete engine rebuild. The Honda V6 however does still have a belt that must be replaced every 110,000 miles.
The yellow radiator light on your Honda Accord is an indicator of low coolant in the radiator. The red radiator warning light is an indication of the engine overheating.
no totally different engine, and engine bay lay out. Smaller engine (civic) cant cool a bigger engine (accord)
The engine in your Accord is an interference engine. For that reason alone, it is critical the belt be replaced correctly. Do it wrong and there will be severe engine damage as soon as you start the engine. Therefore, I recommend you have the belt replaced by a professional. This is not a job for a novice.
A 1992 Honda Accord does not have an Engine oil cooler. It can have a transmission oil cooler, which is built into the radiator.
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 the block, remove the bolts and there is the old thermostat.
Timing chains on Hondas are replaced at engine rebuild time, and no sooner.
Where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine you will find the thermostat.
On a 4 cylinder engine, follow the LOWER radiator hose back to the engine, the thermostat housing is located there.
If it is clean, undamaged, and in good working condition.....NO. Since the radiator needs to be removed, to remove the engine, now is a good time to have it cleaned and checked.
Look in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
You need to check coolant temperature sensor and the water pump.
Well a possibility is a problem with the radiator, either it needs to be fixed, replaced, or has no radiator fluid in it to cool the engine.
The lower radiator hose goes from the bottom of the radiator to the engine block. On the engine side there will be a neck that comes off the block and the radiator hose is attached too it. Inside that neck is the thermostat and it can be replaced as a whole unit (the housing neck) or just the thermostat can be removed and replaced.
It has an interference engine. Get that timing belt replaced and do the water pump at the same time.
replace ur radiator
Follow the top radiator hose down to the water outlet on the engine. The stat is in there.
1- incorrect amount of coolant 2- stuck thermostat If you turn the heater to HOT and run the engine does that reduce the engine temperature a lot? little? If a lot then look at #2. Other reasons for overheating include a worn out fan motor and/or clogged radiator. The original radiators on these cars had plastic tanks which would eventually crack and leak causing a loss of coolant. Check for a greenish colored residue around the top of the radiator. If the radiator is cracked, it must be replaced. If it is clogged, a GOOD radiator shop can clean it and replace the tanks (if they are plastic), or the radiator can be replaced. Cost of replacement is not a lot more than cleaning on these cars, and the confidence of having a NEW radiator is worth a lot.
No , it is not an interference engine
radiator hose needs replacing. use and heat will cause hose to collapse when worn out
The 4 cylinder Accord uses a timing chain that normally requires no maintenance and will last the life of the engine. The V6 Accord however uses a timing belt that must be replaced every 110,000 miles. The V6 is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage.
No, the chain should last the life of the engine.
The thermostat in a 1992 Honda accord lx is located in housing that can be found when you follow the upper radiator hose back and finding where it connects to the engine.
You need to have the main relay replaced. I did that with my 1992 accord. ask around if you don't believe me. good luck. ro
Sometomes it is hard to get all of the oil out of the cooling system. However the place that replaced the engine should flush the cooling system until it is clean. Also if your car has an engine oil cooler , it could be the cooler in the radiator and not have been the engine in the first place.
