94 honda is overheating

Just got a tranny replaced and i noticed my engine overheating a week later and the only way it cools down is by turning on the a/c at full blast could this be my thermostat being faulty?

I dont think the transmission has anything to do with your overheating problem...Check to see if there is water in the oil...If there is water in the oil then it could have a head gasket problem..Did you ever replace the thermostat? If it is stuck then it would also cause overheating...Excessive exhaust backpressure because of a clogged catalytic converter could also cause overheating..Also check belt tension and condition. A loose belt that slips may prevent the water pump from circulating coolant fast enough and/or the fan from turning fast for proper cooling...Another thing it could be is a faulty Water pump -- Any wobble in the pump shaft or seepage would call for replacement. In some instances, a pump can cause an engine to overheat if the impeller vanes are badly eroded due to corrosion or if the impeller has come loose from the shaft. The wrong pump may also cause an engine to overheat. Some engines with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those used on the same engine with ordinary V-belts... Also check the Fan -- With mechanical fans, most overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan clutch, though a missing fan shroud can reduce the fan's cooling effectiveness by as much as 50% (depending on the fan's distance from the radiator) which may be enough to cause the engine to overheat in hot weather or when working hard.

Honda HRV overheated on motorway. When i allowed the engine to cool down and tried to restart, it wont turnover. Even with a jumpstart.


If you cannot turn the crankshaft then it is a very good possibility that the motor is seized up. Source a replacement from the wreckers or an engine reconditioning shop or a lap engine importer as these engines are normally low mileage units and in good condition.

Coolant leaking from above front suspension


If it's from the front of the engine, the water pump may have failed. Check for water coming out from the bottom of the pump.
Was the overheating caused by low coolant level?
If not the pump, check your engine freeze plugs and hoses.

Overheating,smoking and dying.now it ont start at


What is overheating ? Engine or tranny? You said you put tranny fluid in, but not in the engine right? Engine sounds like it is toast. Is there any abnormal look to the engine oil on the dipstick? Are you losing coolant?
If you add coolant with engine NOT hot, and watch the radiator fill spout with engine started and warming up, do you see water gurgling?
Do a compression test.
