Default 1992 Honda Accord engine problems?

I high-centered my 1992 Honda Accord on 3 rocks in a snow storm and ever since i did that, my car's been reving itself between 1 and 2 thousand rpms, and it ALWAYS overheats after a little bit. But it never revs itself until it's been running for about 30 seconds. If i run it til it revs itself, shut it off, then turn it on again immediatley, it'll continue to rev itself. I think that means i haave some pressure problems in my engine. What's the exact problem with my car!!!!? And how much do you think it'l cost to get it fixed?

Sounds like you have air in the cooling system, try bleeding it.

I think the O2 sensor was damaged That causes the ECU to hunt for the correct mixture when the sensor warms up. Unless it was changed recently it is well due for replacement anyway. If the revving is from that cause it will stop if you unplug the O2 sensor. Replacement is a fairly easy do it yourself job. If you use an aftermarket sensor and buy the socket to change it you should spend a little less than $100.

That doesn't necessarily explain the overheating, though. Get the idle under control, then check out the overheating situation. Because it takes time and apparently does it whether you are in town or on the highway my first suspect is the radiator, but if it only does it in town check to see if the radiator fan is working.
