My friends Civic is overheating real quick. He has replaced with new parts the water pump, radiator, thermostat, coolant temperature sensor, and one other sending unit or sensor which I dont know exactly what its for but it is related to cooling system somehow. First, shouldnt the new radiator if its started with the cap off not push coolant back out through the cap? Second, after it starts the coolant just sits there and its not cirulating. So is it safe to say that its either the thermostat not opening or is it just a bad radiator or something totally different? Coolant doesnt seem to be reaching the engine block.I wouldnt think the thermostat would cause it to push coolant back the other way. Could anyone please help? Thanks
I just thought of something, are some radiators sold with a plug/cap in the lower hose end? Just a thought cause my friend isnt the sharpest pencil in the drawer at times. Lol
have the same problem?
