    My '92 Accord will overheat if not moving for a couple minutes. The
    thermostat and water pump have been replaced. The car is new to me. Is it
    possible that the fan (or fans) are not running? Thanks.

    Sounds likely. Do you hear the fans running when it overheats?

    Nope. It is stupid, but before this, i never realized that I had never
    heard the fans run. Now I just have to figure out why they aren't.

    Check out the "93 Accord overheating" thread in the alt.autos.honda
    newsgroup. You might find some relevant troubleshooting tips there.

    Generally one can easily check the cooling fan(s) status by
    operating the HVAC system in AC or defrost mode. However simply
    knowing that the fan(s) operate does not mean they are coming on
    at the proper temperature. The thermal switch should be checked
    for proper function, as well. If everything is operating as
    designed, then I would determine the condition of the radiator.

    Ignore this clown. The gen 5 Accords have separate fans...one for a/c,
    another for cooling.

    spake unto the masses in

    A blocked rad will cause overheating at speed, not at idle, the opposite of
    the OP's complaint.

    You should stop guessing, "Mike".
