Question about 2003 Honda Civic
I have a 2003 honda civic lx. when i go for long trips, and i stop and idle or when i climb up a hill. my temperature gauge inidicates over heating, but engine is not over heating. Coolant is push to the reservoir until it is full and over flows. I replace water pump, thernostate control, bleed coolant when i fill radiator to eliminate air bubbles. it runs well after new coolant is place. but problems comes back especially when i do long trips..please help..my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi my name is brad i see you are haveing a problem and i think i might know the problem. if you have done all of that to your car and it still over heating you might have a blown head gasket one way to check is to pull your thermostat out and fill your coolant leaving the cap off then start you car let it rrun a few minutes and if you see bubbles the radiator its the head gasket even though you wont have coolant in your oil or out the tail pipe. if you check that and ther is no bubbles i have one other spot for you to check ( dont know if you have the 1.5 or 1.6 sohc ) but if you have the 1.6 sohc with the mpfi you should check on the throttle body at the idle air control valve(IAC) you will see two small line`s that have coolant some times on hondas with high millage the line will fill with crud and that can cause a problem.. if you have any other honda needs please let me know
