#1246 of 1859 97 Honda accord Overheating
Jul 07, 2008 (4:23 pm)
I have a 1997 Honda Accord with 190000 miles. Lately its been running hot, only in the city (at redlights though) When I'm driving on the highway its fine. Ive replaced the a/c cooling fan and the engine cooling fan. I've also replaced the thermostat gauge, and flushed the radiator. It still runs hot at stop lights, I have no idea what the problem is or how to go about fixing it.
Also, the radiator fan only works when the AC fan is on, as in, only when I have the a/c working on the interior of the car....
I need help, any suggestions?

my 97 honda did the same thing. i replaced the thermostat,radiator,fluid,flushed it out and its like brand new.
i got an after market radiator for 90$ and 2.004 for the thermostat. . make sure u tighten the thermostat. but dont strip the cover to it.
its easy to do. get a maint book from your local autoparts store. it takes about a good day to do it.
make sure u dont drain the old fluid on the ground.
mite as well change the oil and check everything anyway.
make a day of it.

#1250 of 1859 1995 honda accord flashing transmission light
Jul 14, 2008 (1:55 pm)
I have a 1995 honda accord 4 speed automatic transmission the 4 th gear indicator has a green light surrounding it and it is constantly flashing when the key is turned on. When trying to extract trouble codes the check engine light flashes nothing, but the 4 sp indicator light flashes 7 times pauses then continues the process again flashing 7 times pausing until the key is turned off. the car struggles to go 30 mph. Does anyone have a clue as to what the flashing light is telling me?

I think you should go to the local auto parts stores, and see if they can scan for the transmission trouble-codes. I don't know of any one digit codes (7). Have you checked the fluid level?

Hello! 1995 Accord auto with AC that timing belt broke in. Took it to shop-replaced the timing belt and water pump. It started fine-got 4 or so miles down the road and it croaked! Would not and will not start. Will turn over but not start. Have changed out distributor, cap, plugs, coil, main relay, and computer with no success. Have put the parts mentioned above in another 1995 and that car will run-put them back in this car and it does not run. It turns over, gas pump runs, fuel squirts at fuel rail. The check engine light comes on when switch is turned on and goes off as normal. The trouble code is not showing on the check engine light-it is showing on the light above it and is a 52. 52 is not a valid code and the code should show on the check engine light! The plugs are getting fire. We have tried crossing spark plug wires to see if we can at least get it to backfire or something-still nothing! Tried taking plug out and pouring small amount of gas in cylinder and still nothing-not even a backfire. We have never seen anything like this! Any good ideas? A friend of a friend said it might be a cam sensor-what are your thoughts on that? Not sure which way to go other than a flame-thrower and a bucket of gas....

Troubleshooting the Honda Ignition System - Coil, Igniter and more
The shop that replaced the timing belt should be correcting the problem.
Poor workmanship, timing, bent valves, incorrect cam/crank timing.
