HELP!..I have a 95 Sedan w/ 116k miles. I have had major cooling system issues for the past year. It's excatly what everyone else is describing with thier symptoms. I was looking for some advice on what to do...
1)Needle Spikes to H...I get No Heat..when stopped
2) When I give the car gas...needle comes back down..some heat for about 10 minutes. Repeats ever time i stop
3) Have to fill radiator with coolant about every other day with about 1/5 gal.
4)Coolant smell inside the car
5) Excessive white smoke from exhast even when car is shut off after driving
What I have done so far:
Acura replaced raditor, waterpump, timing belt, hoses, and thermostat twice
It was ok for about two months...then all the problems came back.
Now I am assured it must be a BHG...am I right?
My question: I have decided to replace the entire engine? Can I be assured the problem won't come back? Is there anything underlying issues with the cooling system such as sensors or computer issues that I should get done as well as the engine replacment? Before I make this big investment I wanted some feedback and thoughts on what I could expect. Also if anyone has had their engine replaced what is the estimate cost I should expect of this job? I appreciate all the feedback I can get...thanx!!!
