Have you checked to see if cooling fans are working?

I assume, the fan runs when I shut my car off

well

I see, I missed that part. This would mean the radiator is clogged and needs to be replaced. I'm also assuming you have verified coolant level is correct so if that has already been done then replace the radiator. I'd also consider replacing thermostat first but based on symptoms problem is the radiator. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

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.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
