  • Re: Midsize Sedans 2.0

    A second improvement over my wife's 2013 Accord is the aluminum hood. It's much lighter! Not that it's so hard to lift a regular hood, but this one feels like it weighs half as much as the ones on previous Accords.

    Does any other midsize sedan have an aluminum hood?
    My '14 Malibu's hood is aluminum. My 2003 leSabre's hood was aluminum.
    Don't think Accord's got anything new there. B) Probably a little late to the party.

    Thanks all. I have a great bunch of friends here at Edmunds (or should I say, ENABLERS).....
    Tooling around for the last couple of she is.
    Congratulations on the Mustang. When you didn't take the $1K under expected price at Interstate,
    I guessed you'd go for the Cobra. It is perfect for your wants that you described and it's a
    seductive combo with the convertible and performance at a great price IMHO.

    ...but am being seduced by their shininess,...
    That gave me my morning laugh. That's great personificiation of car's appeal to us guys.

  • Re: my radiator fans not working,it overheats a little,winter i had heat and my ac blows good but warm

    If you have the AC on and the temp is above 50, the fans should be running to cool the radiator and provide a minimal air flow over the condenser coil in front of the radiator. If your fans aren't running, you've got to get it checked or use a meter and some electrical troubleshooting.

    You don't say which Pontiac you have...
    but in the H-body I had in 1993, 1998, and 2003 some of the relays in the fuse-relay center have the same number and can be interchanged to check for bad ones. E.g., the horn relay may be the same as one of the radiator fans. There may be more than one relay in the fan circuit if you have two radiator fans and one has two speeds.

    If you are able to use a voltmeter to troubleshoot circuits...
    There are electrical diagrams available at by giving them your email for reference or by joining and using their troubleshooting diagrams.

    But like Isell said, you've got to get that fixed to prevent overheating your engine.

    Unless you do your own oil changes, how does anyone know for sure what is being put into the crank case.
    Was this the same store that said on the bill they put in a different weight of oil in your Sonata than refused warranty because of a small error on the record keeping on your part? I looked up Hyundai warranty and found many folks complaining about the rigorous interpretation of the terms by Hyundai when it would benefit them avoiding a repair.
