Engine Cooling problem
1996 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 157k miles
Hello, my accord has an interesting problem. It runs hot but it is speed dependent.
@ 45 mph, it runs normal (between 1/4 and 1/2), unless I run the AC, then it runs about 1/2 gauge.
@ 55mph it will run a hair above 1/2, regardless of if the ac is on or not.
@ 65-70mph it runs about 3/4's of the gauge, and if I slow down to 55mph it drops again back to temps.
Ive dealt with cars that have had both bad water pumps and/or low flow in the cooling system for others reasons, and this simply doesnt really act like what Ive seen before, but then again, I have never owned a honda before.
Ive ruled out a headgasket for now as there are none of the signs at this point in time, but again, no experiences with a honda so.
have the same problem?
