Question about 1999 Honda CR-V
We have done the radiator new top tank flush a new cap an a new thermostatic . We can run it to warm up for half hour its ok temperture normal on half. Then you take it for a drive its normal you could about 6km an then the temperture shoots up to the red then drops back to normal like straight away so i pull over to see if it boiling an stream but nothing its normal. I get hm an its run sweet no streaming or boiling over. But in after its cool down you have to put about half litre of water an the over bottle is normal. So can you help. I real donot what to think of the worse.
What you need to do is to check where the leak is coming from. If you have to add water after it's run, then i suggest maybe putting a cardboard under the engine after driving to trace if there are any leaks. Also check the coolant/water level when the engine is running at normal operating temperature, both the radiator and the reservior. But please be carefull when you do this due to pressure, specially when checking a radiator in the condition the cooling system is in. And last i would suggest putting distilled water rather than regular tap water. The water from the tap is hard water so it will have the tendency to evaporate a lot more quickly than soft water. Hope you fix it.
