Question about 2002 Honda Civic
Exhaust gases are released into the cooling system due to which it is building excessive pressure in the cooling system.
Before entering into the major repair, ensure the operation of radiator fan and re-torque the cylinder head bolts in proper sequence when the engine is at room temperature.
If the problem persists:
- Clean the radiator.
- Replace the cylinder head gasket with a genuine one.
- Surface grind the cylinder head.

Usually when the temp Gauge fluctuates like that it could be the sending unit has taken a lunch break. First thing do a wiggle test to see if the Gauge moves. Wiggle the wires at the temp gauge sensor should be located at or around the thermostat if the gauge moves replace sensor. Make sure cooling fans are coming on, if not disconnect sensor, if fans come on, bad sensor. If fans stay of bad fan. If all this fails then you will probably have to start looking at water pump. Common cause for failure if nt leaking, rusted impeller due to use of water instead of antifreeze.

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.
Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.
Stop leak can plug everything.
Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.
