Question about 1998 Honda Civic
The normal rule of thumb is to start ruling out the little things before the big.
Process of elimination..
1. coolant level>leaks
2. quality of coolant.
3 check for blockages /air locks by squeezing hoses.
Take off your rad cap. Squeeze the coolant hoses. u should see the
effect of the squeezing in your rad level/resevour.
None of your hoses should be solid upon squezing them.
If they are , u have an air lock /blockage.
3 You can rule out the relay for the fan motor if it kicks in.
It should kick in around the 1/4 way mark on your gauge.
4.Check all fuses relaeted to water pump etc.
5.,Most commonly, it is the thermostat....for as little as they are worth, try one.
6. Listen under the hood when the engine is running, IF you hear a
whining, see if you can tell if it is coming from the water pump area.
If so, odds are your water pump bearing is shot.
