I have read about the 2005 Honda Civic engine overheating issues. Most people say the same thing: the car first starts to not blow warm air when idling at a stop light but then the heat will kick in once the car starts moving. A scent of antifreeze is noted after exiting the car after driving it then the car overheats. This is what happens with my car. Also turning the heat on causes the car to overheat even more. Some people have replaced the head gasket only to find that the overheating problem begins again after about 800 post-replacement. Also if the temp gauge starts moving towards the hot zone turning on the A/C will cause it to go cool again.
What is the real problem?
