Engine Cooling problem
1994 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 175000 miles
Just can't figure this one out! It all started with a leaky water pump, so I replaced the water pump and thermostat. Shortly after that the head gasket went out and so I replaced it. Now with all these new parts engine is still running hot. Although it is very specific when it is running hot. It will only run hot when I am running it at a steady speed for about 10 or 15 minutes, if I stop at a light or shift through the gears it will drop from almost being over the normal range to about halfway on the temp gauge. I have bled the system and I don't think there is any air in the system, and I have also run a flush through the system so I don't think it's clogged anywhere, but I can't be sure. If anyone has any thoughts on how I can make this problem quit I would very much appreciate it, I have put way to much work into this car to not have it run right.
have the same problem?
