98 acura engine overheating
I have a 98 acura CL 2.0. I recently had the head gasket, water pump, timing belt, spark plugs and wires, temperature sensor and radiator replaced. Also, the thermostat was removed. However, I have had problems with the engine overheating when stopped at red lights or in heavy stop and go traffic. The fans are working. Hoses were replaced. Garage that I have been taking the car to for the repairs can not figure out what is wrong with the car. If it continues to overheat...I am worried that the head gasket is going to crack again. I have been going through a lot of coolant. There are no leaks. Hopefully someone has some suggestions on what may be causing the car to overheat!!!
The main reasons for overheating are coolant level is low, leak in the engine cooling system, thermostat is bad, water pump is failing, radiator cooling fan is not working, blown head gasket but as you said you replaced all that. so now you must have to take your car to an expert. you should avoid the existing shop and visit to a good auto repair shop. I suggest you a best auto repair shop i.e. Transmission Experts, they are really helpful. Transmission Experts also offers a wide range of auto repair services including Transmission rebuilding, Radiators, Drive shaft repair, Breaks, shocks, alignment, suspension etc.

I would suspect a water pump that's on its way out.
