Default 95 integra rs overheating?

i have an overheating problem. no leaks, radiator blew up. replaced the radiator, flushed the cooling lines runs fine for the rest of the day. next day, drive maybe 30 miles to work, drives perfectly the whole way, get to work and ac hose blows spraying coolant. funny thing is temp does not read above half on the guage. maybe thermostat is not reading correctly? maybe fans are not turning on? maybe water pump? going to replace ac hose, thermostat and fan relay. and advice is helpful. it seems like it is building pressure in the cooling system causing components to fail.

Sounds like the Head Gasket is blown.

That would cause the extra pressure in the system...

Most likely the heater core is almost blocked causing high pressure problems.

4 things could be causing this (you mentioned 3).

1) Thermostat (If you decide to replace the thermostat make sure you buy it at the dealer (not aftermarket)

2) Fans

3) Water Pump (not working correctly)

4) Radiator Cap (most likely not the one causing the problem, but check just to take it oof the list.
