OVERHEATING

Honda Civic

I have a 98' Honda Civic EX, 1.5 engine, 173k miles. I replaced thermostat, hoses, radiator & distributor caps, & new radiator. Still overheating, bubbling out of reservoir & smoking. HELP!

Make sure your relays and fuses feeding power to the fan(s) are in good working order. Swap out questionable relays for known good ones. Replace temp switch/sensor with a known good one. Ensure water pump is in good working condition.

Pressure test the Cap- Fan coming On or what?

Check the oil dipstick-is it milkshake looking or oil in the coolant. Lets not think! Headgasket yet!
