Question about Honda Ballade
Someone told me that the honda cars have a tendency of overheating the engine, they suggested that i should consider to take the thermostsrt out so that water will regulate freely. please advice
If you take the thermostat out the engine will never get up to full operating temp. You will burn more gas to keep the car running. You will also have no heat if you live in a cool climate. The chances of the car overheating due to the thermostat are slim to rare. It does happen. There will be some warning signs before your vehicle overheats to the point of serious damage. One the temp gauge will start to rise above the normal mark. Periodically checking your gauges while you drive should be a normal practice. If there is another cooling system failure you will start to notice drips, a sweet smell from the engine compartment, and if it gets bad enough steam from the engine compartment. The truth is the t stat could and does stick on many vehicles a lot of times. When taken care of immediately there are no ill effects. Your better of replacing the stat with a good qulity stat and staying aware of what your vehicle is telling. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.
