HEATING/COOLING

2004 Honda Civic • 80,000 miles

I recently bought this car so I dont have a lot of history to tell. The car started heating up while I was driving on the freeway. The temperature reached its maximum, so I pulled over. I opened the hood and saw a lot of water coming out of the water reserve tank. I waited a few minutes for the car to cool down and then I putted some more water in. The cooled down and I drove it home (abt10 mi) and made it with no more problems. What could be the cauee of this heat? Should I replace the thermostat? Please help. Thank you.

I would start there along with finding the leak.

It also sounds like you may have damaged the head gasket from this event

So I checked the thermostat and its working properly also I checked for leaks but I found none. What else can I do at this point? Also I checked the coolant level and its fine. Please help.

Have a leak down test done to confirm head gasket.
