Welcome to JustAnswer.

Is your Accord a V6 or 4cyl?

If it overheats when standing still the cooling fans are probably not working. When it's overheating open the hood and look at the radiator and condenser fans let me know if they are working. They both should be on. If you have a DX with no A/C then it will only have one fan.

Thanks, Honda-Man

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.
