Question about 1998 Honda Civic
There are only a few things that will cause this problem, one is a slight leak at the head gasket of the engine, combustion gases leak into the cooling system and create a gas bubble around the engine thermostat (this controls the flow of coolant in the engine), this stops heat from transferring to the thermostat and it fails to open, hence the overheat, the 2nd is the possibility that the thermostat is defective, they do stick, before doing anything else have the thermostat replaced, they are relatively cheap to have replaced and this may be the problem, the other possibility of the head gasket involves major engine repair. Was your cooling system rusted? if so just a flush of the radiator won't do, u must have it removed and professionally cleaned by a radiator repair shop.

a salvage yard part would be fine,and would be a fraction of the estimate given you by Pep Boys. that estimate is really high,btw. kia is a good vehicle when properly maintained. if finances are an issue,i recommend using sme Lucas products that are additives,they wont fix your problem peranetly but can definately hold you over a month or two.

Hello! I'll need a little clarification...What size engine is installed in the vehicle? How did you determine that the engine looses spark? When you say spontaneously or at times; Is there a relationship to a cold or hot engine? Guru............saailer
