I have a 2002 Honda CRV that is overheating. I recently had the engine swapped and the mechanic that did the replacement did not do a good job. When I picked up the car from the mechanic I noticed that the CRV engine took a long time to warm up. I had a feeling that the thermostat was bad so I replaced it this morning. As I took out the old thermostat I noticed that the spring assembly was not on the old thermostat. So I replaced it with a new Honda thermostat. Now after seven minutes of running the engine the car over heats. I also noticed that the water in the radiator is not hot. Not even warm. Also I know that I have to replace the OUTLET WATER assembly. This assembly is bleeding air when the engine is on. Could this be the cause of the overheating?
have the same problem?
