Question Answered: car overheats/ replaced thermostat,water pump,water pump belt, all hoses

Assuming you have a Northstar engine,try checking the purge line. It's the small hose near the top of the coolant tank. Engine at idle, pull the line from the tank, if no coolant flow is coming from this hose, then it's blocked and can cause overheating. Hopefully this will be your easy fix, otherwise it could be a head gasket problem.

Assuming you have the correct oil weight and you change your oil on a regular basis, I would start by inspecting the oil sending unit for any loose connections. It's also possible that you got a defective oil filter even though it's new.

Is your check engine light flashing? If so, do not try too drive the car, have it towed to your repair place. Leaking injector(s) could be the cause.

Could be condensation from weather changes, not driving far enough for the engine to reach full operating temp. Check for white smoke coming from exhaust, and watch your coolant level. Have a coolant pressure check done if your really unsure.

Check your oil pressure. I had a 97' Bonneville with a 3.8, which the oil pressure was not holding where it should of been and sure enough it was the rod bearings. It didn't make any noise though.

I had a similar problem. I cleaned out the socket.I used a small screwdriver, few Q-tips. Just clean the contacts the best you can, then dab a little Dielectric grease, replace bulb. Otherwise you might have to replace the socket.

I believe it's a change oil light. Once oil is changed then there is a re-set button. Check owner's manual or go online to a 2006 Honda Owner's Manual.

The socket which you put the new bulb in could be dirty and corroded. Take out the bulb and clean the connection the best you can. You can scrape it out with a small screwdriver, maybe wire brush, but try to clean it out the best you can, then dab a little diaelectric grease on the contacts, put bulb back in and see. If that fails, then the socket will need replacing. But try cleaning it first, I had the same problem with mine about a month ago, and it's been fine since.
