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)
A 1992 Honda Accord does not have an Engine oil cooler. It can have a transmission oil cooler, which is built into the radiator.
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.
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.
On a 4 cylinder engine, follow the LOWER radiator hose back to the engine, the thermostat housing is located there.
Where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine you will find the thermostat.
Look in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
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.
You need to check coolant temperature sensor and the water pump.
