    sorry work weekend shift got sleepy. can your mechanic maybe check the water pump to make sure its pumping. i had a 2000 with a loose impeller not turning but pulley was

  • Ernie Strong Sep 03, 2012

    I asked him to check the pump, he stated that if the pump was not working the car would make a noise, I told him maybe the W/P is faulty because with the radiator cap off there is not a contant flow of coolant. Also my mech doesnt have the proper diagnostic tools. What do you suggest?

  • glenn gamble Sep 03, 2012

    my car didnt make noise either, it took forever to figure it out. i'm not saying that it is definately the problem just know it was for me. is the problem exactly the same as before the rapairs?

  • Ernie Strong Sep 03, 2012

    Yes the problem is exactly the same after changing all the other parts!

  • Ernie Strong Sep 03, 2012

    I will have the W/P checked on Tuesday and update the status of this problem! Thanks Glenn for taking interest in offering assistance with my problem.

  • glenn gamble Sep 03, 2012

    if you can have compression checked also, could be a head gasket problem. good luck , hope your tech can find some answers for you!

  • Ernie Strong Sep 05, 2012

    I took my vehicle to another mechanic who has the resources to do a proper diagnosis I will keep you updated once I know something. Thank you!

    My vehicle did the same. Running hot. I kept telling my mechanic and other but they thought I was exaggerating. Though while check engine wouldn't come on for temperature I would feel it not right. When the transmission gave out I found out that the pipe after manifold was completely clogged up. I had past smog the past year as well as other as well as replased pipes and muffler. Found out the clogged pipe had ruined the transmission but luckily not the engine. Hope info helps...

Low fuel light does not come on


Float lever out of adjustment on fuel pump module assembly. Remove assembly, float needs to be adjusted up so that "low light" is triggered before you get to empty.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

If you get rough idling or the tachometer needle does not stay in one place when idling then you may have a dirty or faulty idle air control valve. This is a common cause of the problem you are describing. Other issues could be dirty MAF sensor or loose wires or vacuum hose.

Spedometer stopped working


do you have an electronic digital odometer or a mechanical one?

if it is an electronic one, it would be a little bit complicated but if it is a mechanical one, then it is just a broken cable.

the check engine light could be a coincidence , try resseting it by removing the battery for 10 minutes and putting it bak. if you have a major sensor problem then the light would come back on.

i hope i was able to answer ur question


tnx
