I changed both air filters the air is cold but just runs like its on low what could be wrong?
I have a 2000 honda accord that started overheating this morning on my way to work. Fortunately I was a block from work when this happened. I immediately turned it off. It overheats really bad while driving and slowly over heats when idling. Could it be the thermostat is sticking. It was also making a hissing sound after I turned it off this morning, but could not get it to repeat after I had I towed home this afternoon. Also, not sure if the fans should come on when it gets hot, they don't. They only come on when I turn the AC on. Shouldn't they be on when the engine gets hot? I checked the fuse and relay already and both are seem fine. Coolant level is full in radiator and reservoir and is not leaking. Checked all the hoses and they seem to be fine. The only change I have done to the car is I added a quart of oil to it Monday night cause it was low. The car ran fine on Tuesday and it is now Wednesday. I don't think adding the oil had anything to do with the overheating, but I even went to check just now to make sure I hadn't over filled it. Any advice/help would be appreciated.

We just replaced the alternator
When I'm driving the temp will start going up as soon as I stop somewhere. And it will also start rising if going up a hill. But when I start driving normal again the temp gauge will go back Down then up and back and forth. Sometimes it'll even say it's in the red then randomly go right back to the middle. When I look under the hood the car never seems over heated.
as you see the mileage I think I am just about ready for this service
I was driving my car to work this morning I had maybe 10 mins into driving when I felt my car kick on me but I kept driving for about 30 sec to 1 min then I came to a light so I stopped and a few secs later my car turns off. And I can't get it to start. When I crank it after letting it sit for awhile it cranks for like a sec and goes back off don't know what's wrong anybody knows.?
It died yesterday at a stop sign and now will not arc from the plugwires or distributor coil wire.

It happens all the time. No CEL or any codes show up.
My car has a 2002 VTEC 2.3 liter in-line four. Model 23 f-series motor. I need to replace the power steering return hose. (The one that comes off the top, the thick one.) The fittings on it are brass and look pretty dedicated... I'll change my profile picture to it so all can see. Some help would be great! My drivers teat is soon and I need my car in the best shape I can to pass.
