So I have a 1995 Honda Accord and it has a over hearing issue

Asked by Aug 03, 2015 at 01:15 AM about the 1995 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I found the radiator hoses dry rotted
so I replaced them cause it was
spraying out of them only it didn't fix
the problem so I figured maybe
thermostat pulled it apart only to find
no thermostat so I just replaced it
and to be on the safe side replaced
the sensor that is located just be fore
the thermostat. Now I have a new
problem the o ring that comes out of
the thermostat housing to the hard
line that goes somewhere under the
engine completely fell apart so I can't
find an o ring to fit it and can't start
the car to even see if the problem is
fixed I need help I don't know
anything about these cars literally my
first time working on these other than
American muscle so lost and really
hoping that the WP ISNT SCREWED
WHAT DO I DO

Maybe can found a o ring the right size or close enough to work at a hardware store.

Sounds like this vehicle has had a history of overheating and the previous owner removed the thermostat to "fix" it. This is a "no-no". Anyhow, check your local hardware store, as firebird said, or your local auto parts store. We have O-ring assortments in stock for this very reason. HTH. -Jim
