    Hi,

    I need some experts opnion here. I have Accord 83 automatic. It is heating up when i turn on AC after 10 min almost.Temp guage goes up almost to 20 percent but when i switch off engine it boils water and water start leaking from side bottle or radiator cap. I hv installed two fan on radiator and get it cleaned then a fan on condenser. but still problem is there. I hv installed thermostat for AC as well. A mechanic told me its gear problem it not shifting gear. but my car still runs fast 120 or more. so i dnt agree with him that its gear problem. please suggest. should i replace head gasket or something else. suggest me any good mechanic as well.... Thanks in advance.

    you should see for the bubbles in your radiator with engine start, does your dipstick contains both oil & water? If yes, its a gaskit issue.

    After checking the cap and headgasket issues check that you have you purged all the air out of the system, the bleeder valve is located near the top radiator hose connection on the engine.

    Do this on a cold started car running on fast idle (choke knob on 2 clicks in the accord) or just use the throttle pedal to raise rpms to 1500- use a plastic funnel jammed in the radiator neck and fill it slowly - unscrew the bleeder valve and see for spurts of air - when the stream becomes a steady liquid tighten it.

    another point is - is your radiator original? If not are you sure its sitting where its supposed to, because the 83 models and onwards have the rad cap and top of the engine at the same height, it forces air to get trapped easily thats why there is a bleeder valve.

    If your radiator cap is sitting below the original level (due to stupid radiator design) you will never get all the air out and cook your engine

    Which Coolant you are using as Water tends to Boil.
    Radiator Cap is not keeping enough Pressure so Water Leaks
    Heating System need certain amount of pressure to keep water in water state rather than Steam
    Check the Compressor as may b putting too much load on Engine and causing heat up.
