Overheating when I sit idle.


Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

Motor engine cooling fan only runs as engine temperature requires additional cooling.

The engine light came on in my 2003 Honda civic LX. My mechanic stated code was misfiring on cylinder 3. He changed the coil pack and reset the engine light. The car still seems to misfire when it is...


If you pull the plug wire from the spark plug on cylinder 3, is there any oil, water, or antifreeze in there? Have you removed the plug to see what condition it is in? If it is black or oil-fouled, you should replace it, or better yet, the entire set of spark plugs. When the coil pack was replaced, was the plug wire replaced as well? I have seen a stuck fuel injector cause your problem before, because the cylinder does not get the right amount of fuel, running either too lean, or too rich.

I have a 1996 Honda Civic, it only overheats after driving for about 45 minutes, then it goes from normal to in the red immediately, If I turn the heater on it return to normal. There is no smoke coming...


Might have air in the system. With engine cool, take radiator cap off and start car. Let it come to operating temp and ensure fan kicks on/off as it should. Keep hands clear of rotating parts - fans, belts, motors. Replace cap and make sure there is water in the overflow reservoir.

My 91 honda civic has alot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust, and have oil on the spark plug in the #3 cylinder not sure what the problem is (bad vaulve/seal)??? one month prior to problem blew...


I'll tell you what few might be problems
Oil on spark plug could be:

1. bad cylinder rings 2. value seals
For Value Seals you will take off head again and then take off value over. Take all (Lifters or Cam) and springs off and you will see seal rings in each of values.
For cylinder rings, you will maybe need to take motor out and take head off, oil pan and rod bearing unbolts to get cylinder out to replace new rings. Or you can try do that without motor out. just take oil pan off under the car.
Try change oil with 1 qt of Lucas Oil and 4 or 5 normal oil. Best oil is Castol High Mileage
Lucas Oil should help stop leaking oil inside the cylinder. Or another kind bottle called (Stop Smoke) at auto store.

Honda Orthia 1996 GX Automatic. Car don't start. Start the car today (after a few weeks of been parked), start without problems, I leave it runing and when I come back to check it wasnt runing anymore...


check engine light? check oil level, low oil possible engine damage.is there gas in tank?guages can lie, add a gallon if not sure. when key is turned on, not all the way to start, can you hear the fuel pump, an electric motor sound? have someone listen above the tank with trunk open or listen under tank. past this, check if spark plugs are working, remove a plug, put wire back on, rest plug on metal to ground, turn motor and check for spark. please rate answer.

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.
