I changed them and still overheated at long red lights/traffic. mind you the radiator was replaced "professionally" in the neighborhood of 205k and im at 218k. I checked the radiator and the reservoir was completely...

    Cooling fan acting weird/car overheating

    @Eclipse99fwb I was going to replace the fans until I noticed they both activate when I have the ignition on on. So they both work they just don't work when it is running. So its very weird. Ill check for leaks tomorrow. Thank you for the input.

    Bit of a S*** pickle. Need advice.

    yes. one connector pin is at 11.9v and the other around 5.2. All other pins do not have current. looks like the fuel pump is trying to prime, but wont; reason for this is that I removed the fuel lines that go to the pump assembly a few times and each time gas came out of them. im wondering if...

    Car won't start occasionally

    mine does that occasionally. on mine it is the Main relay that I still haven't fixed/replaced. no the relay issue will not come on a regular ecu scanner. went you turn the car on (on, not start), check for the CEL light to come. If it doesn't then it is your main relay. when mine doesn't come...

    p0132 p1457 p1676 After a rainy day, very rough idle and barely drives

    I had a similar experience with my Accord (98 EX 4 cyl 210k miles) recently. We had heavy rains here in southern California about two weeks ago and it caused flooding. long story short i got caught in the rain and went through a 10 inch flooded zone for about 100 feet. Car acted fine for about 6...

    Starting issue

    Battery is about 5 months old. Yes everything else turn on as normal. The stereo, all the dash lights, except the check engine light. It's very odd. It hasn't happen since.

    Starting issue

    so I had an odd experience last night with my accord. I got off work and went to 7-11, because it was miller time. when i got out of 7-11 my car wouldn't start. the odd thing was that i noticed my CEL had finally turned off right before I tried to start it. It wasn't until the fourth try that my...

    Starting issue

    so.... ten months later, she's back on the road. I was so upset about her not running correctly after numerous times of trying to bleed the coolant system that I bought a 97 camry to drive and resell. Bought a 97 camry with 148 original miles for $1200. it was my first toyota ever and honestly...

    Starting issue

    Supraguy. Thank you for your input. As I was reading your comment on checking the wiring; A light bulb went off. I spray painted the top part of my intake manifold with about three coats of temperature resistant paint. So maybe the ground wire that goes on the side of the manifold is not...

    Anyone ever vandalize your car?

    I had some idiot spray paint over my year sticker on my license plate. This was about 5 years ago when I was driving my CRX. Luckily I noticed it before I could be pulled over for it. Paint thinner and it was solved.

    Starting issue

    Two months later and I still can't get it to run correctly. I replace her gasket. Ran smoke through the system and no leaks. Now my car idles and stuters slowly up to 1700rpm. Exhaust smells of gas and when I step on the throttle the motor shuts off. Any ideas? I got two codes for p0505. I...

    Starting issue

    I keep getting contradictions as to how the small 3 hoses next to the MAP sensor go. Mainly the one the goes through the top of the valve cover. Some images it shows that it goes to the middle one. Other pictures shows that it goes to the one on the right. I have a 98 ex f23a1. If anyone with...

    Starting issue

    So I tried bleeding the system again and still not solved. Bleed it for nearly 40 mins. At a steep with the heater knob at max. I ran it till no air bubbles were coming out the funnel when I would squeeze the hoses. I'm at the point where I'm just going to dismantle it and try all over again...

    Starting issue

    I parked it at a slight steep. I tried bleeding the system for over 30mins. I also turned the knob on to hot. I followed pretty much the steps i saw on the youtube videos. Fans kick in about 4 times also. I went to get a replacement gasket and the guy told me i was better off with the gasket i...

    Starting issue

    So finally got around to bleeding the coolant system. Car initially started surging between 1k and 1.8k. After ten minutes it surged between 1k and 1.1k constantly like a case of bad hiccups. I figured it would go away soon . 30+ minutes of running and no sign of a remedy. Noticed my check...

    Accord Has Been Stolen!

    That is messed up. I'm no legal expert, but if the insurance paid it off to you because it got stolen, then it belongs to them. Therefore you have no legal possession over the vehicle. It honestly seems like your only option is to show up and bid on it.
