I recently purchased a 2011 Honda Insight (1.3l engine) with a bad engine and installed a used engine (67k miles on the used engine). Car started up fine and runs fine. Haven’t driven it yet because the High Temp Indicator is coming on after the car runs for a minute or so. I don’t believe its running long enough for the thermostat to open as the hose going to bottom of the radiator is cool, and as I said its only running for a minute or so when the light comes on. The hard line from the water pump to the thermostat is warm, not hot.
I’m thinking I may have air in the coolant system and that’s why the temp sensor is coming on. So, I would go through the process of bleeding the coolant as Eric has detailed in one of his videos except the High Temp Light is coming on so quickly after starting the car. I don’t want to overheat the engine by continuing to run it.
Any thoughts or advice? Thanks
