I don't know where all the above garbage came from, but every 94-2000 civic I've ever worked on for overheating under your described circumstances usually got hot for one reason or another (thermostat sticking, low coolant/leaks, etc) The problem is once these cars get hot 99.9% of the time they warp the head and cause head gasket leaks. So, if there's no obvious reasons for the engine running hot then you need to do a leakdown test on it to check the head gasket. Good luck!

SOURCE: 2003 Honda Civic -LX Timing belt

I tried to get my timing belt/water pumped changed at 96,000K's and my dealer told me the belt in our 2003 Civic is good for 7 years or 168,000K's. I didn't believe him, so I called another dealer out of town and they told me 7 years or 184,000K's.

SOURCE: oil filter in civic 97

If you go to a reputable motor factor,
you can only be sold the correct filter for the civic.
As there are soo many variables in engine type, it's almost impossible to tell, oil volume, or which type filter.
However, I will say, be sure that you don't mix semi-synthetic oil, and mineral oil.
Oil changes should be undertaken every 30,000 miles, (unless under extra work load, (in which case, slightly more regularly))

Otherwise, 10/40 or 15/40 grade oil, is perfectly fine.
The trick to not overfilling the oil, is simply just to take your time, clean the dip stick and retry, until you have the correct reading.

Please don't forget to rate:)

SOURCE: 2003 honda civic how to remove door panel

Step one Look at the inside door handle. Behind it you should see a little cover, You pop that off and there will be 2 phillips head screws behind it. remove them.

Pop out the door handle, and unplug the power lock plug,

Youll also have to take the door lock rod, by spinning the plastic door handle 90 degrees until u can wiggle it out.

next remove the sail panel( The little triangle shaped piece in the corner of the door on the top, ( may have a tweeter in it) ( it just pops out)

Next take a screwdriver (flat head) and pry off the cover of the door handle, there will be
2 phillips head screw behind it ( remove screws)

Unplug power window connector (big green plug)

Now just start gently pry the door panel off with a screw driver, see if u can peek behind the panel and see where the panel clips are, and pry near those areas

Honda civic 2002 overheating


Had the same problem with two cars I had. First was fixed with a radiator flush and refill, second was fixed with a new water pump and belt. I would also look at the radiator and see if there is a lot of bugs and other gunk on it. That can cause the heat not to dissipate without the speed of driving pushing air over it. Pressure washer or coin-op car wash wash high pressure sprayer can clean that off.

Seem like you need to have at-least the two front tires high speed balanced. This shaking at high speed is most likely due to the tire being out of balanced. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
