    My Civic (2003) has been overheating off and on for over a month. It seems to me it overheats when I have been driving on the freeway over 25 miles or more. Then when I get in traffic the temp goes up so fast. I'll turn on the heater and most of the time it will drop just as fast as it went up. So far the thermostat has been changed but has not made a difference. And my fans are working they kick on when the temp is half way.

    i had the same problem.  One of the fan motors burned out but would still turn so i could not see that it was broken.  try looking at both fans & see if one is moving too slowly

Dear Sir, My honda Civic 2003, is getting hot while driving. once its heat gage shows full heat. now its radiator coolent water level is getting low every day, so i'm pauring watter every day now. could...

It's likely that a head gasket is blown, causing fluid to go out of the exhaust pipe especially if you see none on the ground. You might smell a 'sweet' antifreeze/water smell out of the pipe at idle.

Are there any special tools required to change the front brakes on a 2003 Honda civic dc

Not really, that job is pretty easy, I would suggest a clamp though, after you pull the caliper off, to push the piston back down so you can get the new pads in. And have your rotors checked and re-surfaced or replace if necessary. This can be done at some auto parts stores very reasonably. Take the lid off the master cylinder reservoir before you apply pressure to the clamp so the fluid level can spill out if necessary. Keep all your parts clean and do not remove the brake line unless you are going to bleed your brakes also. If you are mechanically adept this whole job will take less than two hours. take care and good luck.

2003 civic overheats at idle, ok when moving, fans are working

Sounds like the fins radiator is plugged with dirt and not enough air can flow thru it. Try blowing it out with compressed air

Where s the power steering top up resivoir on my honda civic 1400 imagine??

Follow your fan belts. One of the belts operates the power steering unit. The resivor should be right there with the power steering unit. It is best to check the level when motor is cold. If it has gone completely dry then you will need to get the air out of it after adding fluid. To do this you add the fluid then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and then back to the left several times. After the steering wheel feels smooth while turning it then you are good to go. Recheck the fluid first after you have turned the steering wheel back and forth and top it off to the mark on the level stick. Hope this helped, raz

Check fluid level when vehicle is cold.When it starts to overheat open the hood and make sure the radiator fan is blowing.If all this is OK then your thermostat may be bad.Look under the car when it overheats for leaks also.
