overheating problem

hey there,
First off: Sorry if theres already a thread for this. i have a 01 prelude and its starting to overheat. when I'm at a light the gauge is like three dashes away from the red line, and when I'm driving the temp. gauge goes all the up to red line. so i checked my fuse for the cooling fan and that was blown, so i changed that, and yet still i have the same problem, i also think that both fans are not coming on as well. i thought about changing the thermostat on it, but i haven't gotten around to that yet. i don't know if its the fans, or the thermostat.

Re: overheating problem

1st, check your coolant level. if it's low or if there's an air pocket in the system, it'll prevent the t-stat from opening, when then prevents the fans from coming on.

next, to make sure the rad fan works, disconnect the green connector on the t-stat housing, and jump it with a piece of wire paper clip. with the key turned to II, the rad fan should come on.
