Having problems with your 1992 Honda Accord ?
Car is running hot, hoses are hot after 2o minutes of driving will start to go up
You need to find out if you are getting any coolant flow. Look for any signs of restrictions. You could try measuring the temp of the inlet hose and comparing it to the temp of the radiator outlet hose, there should be about a 20 degree difference. Next step is to test your thermostat you need to be sure that it is opening properly. First let the car cool down, drain the coolant and remove the thermostat. An easy way is to take some hot water and measure its temp you'll want it around 215 deg f. Place the thermostat into the water and see if it opens up. If so it is working properly and you need to look else ware. Reinstall the thermostat and fill the cooling system make sure to bleed out all the air. Other possibilities are the cooling fan is not coming on, the radiator cap is defective not allowing the system to pressurize a worn out water pump not flowing enough coolant, or a restricted radiator. First off you should try bleeding the system it is possible that there is air trapped in it. Happy hunting.
