How is the condition of the coolant? Was it rusty?
thermostat from Slant bought at Advance Auto, the better, fail-safe model
Did not bleed the air out. Cooling fan operates when AC is turned on, goes off when AC turned off. I drove the car for 5 minutes and it quickly got hot. Pulled back into my driveway. As soon as the I turned it off, the fan came on.
Am doing this now. Paid the wrong expert. Needed to pay HondaPlatinum.
