What can be done is to allow the car cool down sufficiently , call in any road side kazeem to check what’s the cause and fix it temporarily for you to continue your journey where you’d have it properly fixed.

Thanks. Just found had the fan belt got cut and has even fallen out. Now I'm telling a road side kazeem and he's charging me 10k.
4k for the belt (belgium)
3k for workmanship
and 3k for bearing which he says it's stiff because it cracked.
I had the inclination to buy fan belt yesterday. Sincerely, e dey pain me.

Check if the fan is spinning fast enough, or if both fans comes on (if your car uses twin fan system), check for air flow direction when fan is spinning, check if your radiator is dirty or clogged.
All checked and OK.

Gurus in the house please help me.my mechanic did a gear oil change on my 03 accord 4 plugs since then the gear has refused to enter gear two. From gear one if the thing selects to the next gear then the car won't move and the RPM will be fluctuating. I bought the gear like 7 months ago I just decided to change the oil.

New is better if you can get Genuine OE or high quality aftermarket part.

Am experiencing similar issue on my 03 accord I even cahnged new compressor but the thing still persist.
justdollars:
Thanks Kingreign, I didn't tamper with anything. If the AC is not on, the car drives smoothly. But as soon as I switch on the AC, it's as if the car is carrying a very heavy load. Acceleration isn't fast and climbing hill or bump with the AC turned on becomes a challenge.
