Replace the waterpump after 100Kjecodob said:
i replace my head gasket and it definitely the well done job ever. a month later it overheated ,it just yesterday. darn it, i'm in freeway one little hose mess me up, i'm so mad. i replace all the hose that are kindna old but unexpted one. i check my coolent level before i left my shop but coolent lick all out while i'm driving. my suggestion to Prevent BHG you just have to look at the needle sometime. i'm doing HG again 100 for parts but 4 full days of work.GSteg said:to prevent a bhg..
..install a new headgasket and u shouldn't have that kind of problem :lol:
That happend to me on my 92 LS... luckly i got rid of it in time(still got my 91 L with me... its my baby )MikeD said:Our cars tends to risk a BHG when your temp needle rise up in the red zone. Never forget that our engines are very sensitive to this. By driving it past the 'H' mark, you have almost 100% likely blown your HG for sure, and possibly cracked the block. Thats what could happens, when Legends overheat ! -Mike
every car have a weak point, i just sold my prelude and i know it cause me lots of money to fix it. a distributor 350 , a/c electrical are really bad, ask your friend i think he have the same problem. 8 out of 10 prelude i experience have the same problem.ZiggyB said:Seems like the legendary Honda engine durability is shot with this known weak point in the design. Sad part is many Legend owners don't have a clue about this who don't visit this site or ask questions till it happens to them. I don't hear of many Accords/Civics/Preludes of this era having this issue, my cousin's 93 Prelude Vtec has over 180K on his original radiator and running very strong. This is strange because they sourced the radiator to the same supplier as the lesser more populous models.
Don't forget to keep your wallet well stocked. as these cars are not cheap to maintain. but as for preventive maintanance for a BHG. Replace your radiator at 100k. to me cleaning them out is just not good enough. The radiator is the main ingredient for the cooling system... Period...Ballistic said:You wanna know how not to get a BHG? It's called LOVE!!! Give your car a big hug and kiss just before you go to bed. Then it will be happy.
my 92LS has 60K. At around 45K the original radiator started leaking. I caught it because I'm anal and I check all fluid levels once a week. It's not like my wife, who used to drive this car everyday, was going to notice a pegged temperature gauge.jecodob said:
