Question about 1992 Honda Civic
The car over heats after a bit of driving. But short trips its fine. It also will idle ruff when its hot outside, but idles fine in cool weather its been doing the idle thing for about 2 years, but just started over heating. The ruff idle goes away as soon as you step on the gas. Water pumps been changed about 4 years ago. Also had head gasket changed around same time.
If you determine that the head gasket is leaking again, be sure to check the head and block surfaces for signs of warping. After you correct any such problems (by resurfacing, or replacing), be sure to use one of the newer type head gaskets. These are known as "multi-layer steel" or MLS gaskets. They are more expensive than traditional head gaskets, but they are highly recommended for engines that blow head gaskets. It has worked well on my 1992 Civic. The dealer typically stocks them, and Fel Pro makes them for many different engines.
I hope this helps.
Good luck, Mark
