Question about 1992 Honda Civic

94 Civic over heats about 45 min in to driving

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

Bad misfire


run the fault codes as misfire can be from injectors , low fuel pressure and ignition problems
all temp gauges will show a rise on stopping an engine as there is still residual heat in the block and heads with no water circulation and cooling
the fire from the exhaust indicates an exhaust valve is not closing properly so a compression test would be in order to check for valve problems or hydraulic follower problems

Ac intermittently quits working, just replaced condenser, put dye in system at mechanics- no leaks


Have an AC repair shop hook up a set of AC pressure gauges while this is happening to see what is going on. You could have a defective AC compressor or a low refrigerant charge in the system. And as to the hot weather causing it to act up that would be normal, the AC would cool fine the cooler the outside air is, problems like worn out compressors and low system refrigerant charge levels would only show there ugly head in hot weather conditions. Also make sure the cooling fans fo rthe AC and engine are working properly. Good luck with this.

Cool weather, pickup won't idle after driving 2


Check the heating element/heater-plug. The heating-element or hearter-plug heats the gas before getting into the engine. A shop manual is good to guide you.
