It is either a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Depending on which motor your civic has, this could be a tricky replacement, either way, you have to remove the head off of the motor, and then take the head to have it pressure checked to see if there is a crack in it. Nine times out of ten though, you can see a crack in the head with your eye, but you have to have the right "eye" to be able to see the crack.

SOURCE: 2003 Honda Civic runs hot when idling.

Check the cooling fan switch. It appears your auxiliary electric cooling fan isn't going on when at idle. and engine temp increases. While you are driving, air is being rammed thru your radiator as you cruise along, so it isn't overheating, at idle, that isn't happening, and the fan should go on as the temp goes up. When the ac is switched on, the fan is being signaled to operate due to the heavy ac load on the cooling system.

Change the thermostat? Probably did, since you went after the computer. Does the car really over heat? Or does the gauge just go high(bad gauge). If the engine does over heat, then it could be the water pump, or to much sediment in the engine(Something blocked). I have seen both.

sounds like a bad head gasket. Check the oil and look for foam to tell if antifreeze is getting into engine block.

1996 honda


you know the fans are ok most honda have a two terminal switch at the right corner bottom of tthe radiator if you put a jumper across this terminal the fans should kick in, this indicates that the coolant temp sensor is bad replace it, secondly some honda have a temp sensor located right on the thermostat housing and you can disconnect the wire and just ground the wire and the fan should come on so replace the temp switch last thing to check for is coolant leak around the readiator seem i mean the edges the radiator being fiber glass may have hair crack through which antifreeZe keeps leaking out the only suggestion for honda is to replace the radiator.

I don't know where it is located on your car but it could be simply a failure of the engine temperature sensor.
The service manual would tell you where it is and how to check it but it is probably a temperature sensitive resistor and they do fail. Having a multimeter at hand will tell you if it is in the proper range of resistance at ambient temperature. This could range from a few hundred ohms to several kilohms.
