Engine Cooling problem
1988 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles
1988 honda accord 2 door. Overheating!
while comming back from a 100+ mile trip my engine light came on I noticed the water gauge was pegged! I stopped right away and poped the hood there was alot of pressure when I felt the hose so released it when removeing the rad. Cap I thought for sure it was the therostat I removed it and now overheats pretty quick no leaks but build a real lot of pressure, wouldnt that mean the water pump is good? The flow is strong from what I can see.
How can I test the fans to be sure they are running when they should, tonight the engine was way too hot but the fans didnt come on at all! Earlier today the same thing but after the car was off for 15 min one came on! That cant be right? Can it?
PLEASE ANY IDEAS ARE WELCOME, NO DOE FOR A SHOP!
have the same problem?
