The temperature gauge is not above where it would normally be after the car warms up so it’s not like it’s over heating (according to the gauge). When the problem starts occurring we have to pull over, raise the hood and slowly pour water over the engine to cool it down. After a few minutes of cooling off we can resume driving normally.
It’s had the coolant changed and the fan works properly. A Honda mechanic hooked it up the computer and said that the reason for the check engine light was that the catalytic converter was bad. Could this be the reason for the occasional loss of power? Please HELP!
