2001 Honda Civic mileage: 140,000. My wife's car is overheating and losing coolant. However, there is no water in the oil and no oil in the coolant. I continue to add coolant, as it gets low. What could be the problem?

Overheating is usually caused by a partially plugged radiator or a malfunctioning electric radiator fan. In addition, pressure check the cooling system for any leaks.

I would like to add that headgaskets are a very common problem on these vehicles. If there are no visible signs of external leaks, you can guarantee it's a headgasket.
