    It spits the water at the radiator cap opening, not a leak. If you close the radiator cap the car will not start.

If the radiator is leaking, put a bottle of radiator stop leak in it,fill it up the rest of the way with water, tighten cap, and run in idle for 15 to 30 minutes. If the leak is severe or one bottle doesn't work, use two bottles of stop leak and run for 35 minutes.

If it's the radiator cap that's leaking, replace the cap with a new one. Also check to make sure there are no loose cooling hoses.

Safety first: Use extreme caution to never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot, severe burns from escaping hot water could result.

My 1998 Honda Civic is overheating. It has plenty of water and oil. Can only go about 5 miles before white smoke starts and the temperature gauge starts to rise


look for bubbles in the radiator while the car is warming up (be careful of hot coolant spitting out of the cap) if there or little bubbles it could be a good indication of a blown head gasket or cracked head

I have a 1996 Honda Civic, it only overheats after driving for about 45 minutes, then it goes from normal to in the red immediately, If I turn the heater on it return to normal. There is no smoke coming...


Might have air in the system. With engine cool, take radiator cap off and start car. Let it come to operating temp and ensure fan kicks on/off as it should. Keep hands clear of rotating parts - fans, belts, motors. Replace cap and make sure there is water in the overflow reservoir.

96 honda civic ex runs hot


It is either a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Depending on which motor your civic has, this could be a tricky replacement, either way, you have to remove the head off of the motor, and then take the head to have it pressure checked to see if there is a crack in it. Nine times out of ten though, you can see a crack in the head with your eye, but you have to have the right "eye" to be able to see the crack.
