Pearl, I have an elusive overheating problem with my trusty 91 Accord
JA: Watching the temperature gauge creep up into the red is never fun. Fortunately, the mechanics we work with have tons of experience dealing with overheating troubles. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: well maintained 91 accord is overheating at idle. Sensors checked and replaced plus an ECU swap. No leaks and fans work - they just don't kick on when they should.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: definitely - i have a reputation in our house for being able to fix most car issues - LOL don't want to lose that rep!
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: ECU swap, New OE thermostat
, coolant checked and properly bled, fan switch on thermostat housing is new, sensor in the cylinder head and sending unit, too. Fans will work when switch is bypassed.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
