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 engine in your Accord is an interference engine. For that reason alone, it is critical the belt be replaced correctly.

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 the block, remove the bolts and there is the old thermostat.

What is the most likely cause of engine overheating in a 89 Honda Accord LXi?

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.

If a 1996 Saturn SL motor was replaced because a head was blown and oil was leaking into the radiator why is oil still leaking into the radiator?

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.
