1998 Honda Civic Repair Question
Why does my car over heat after getting off the freeway
Try bleeding the cooling system -start here-let me know
I have done this and the same thing still. I parked it with the nose up hill and ran the car with the radiator cap off till the thermostat opened and saw coolant flowing, and kept refilling till it didnt need it any more.
Okay-now you chemical and pressure test it-
What kinda chemical testing? Kw? Ph? I will buy a cap and system pressure test kit tomorrow
Its a bloc check-chemical tester that changes from blue to yellow in color if there's combustion leaking into the cooling system
Are you getting any coolant losses at radiator and/or recovery tank?
Currently no. When the engine heats up it will drop some cause of the engine overheating but not normally.
No coolant losses indicates the problem lies with the cooling efficiency rather than anything else.
Are the cooling fans working correctly? Is this an automatic or manual transmission?
Fan is working. It is an automatic transmission.
Does both fans work together? Was any repairs done on them previously?
At highway speed are there any indication of overheating?
Is the replaced radiator OEM, new or used?
