Tip & How-To about Honda Civic
Hi, if you car's heater is only blowing cold or your car is over heating then the chances are your thermostat has failed.
To test your thermostat you need to remove the thermostat from your car to do this follow your own cars manual then once you have this removed you need to fill a plastic tub with boiling water from the kettle and then place your thermostat into the water.
If your thermostat is working you will see that the part where the spring is will open up to allow water to run through the thermostat if it fails to open then you need to get it replaced if it does open then your car has other problems.
The other problems could be blown head gasket for this you would need to use an workshop manual to do the work yourself or if you are unsure what you are doing or if you have not done this work before then please leave it to a pro
