Engine Cooling problem
1994 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 229000 miles
I drained the coolant from the engine to use some engine block sealer as the coolant is leaking into the engine and blowing out the tailpipe in clouds of white smoke.
I drained ther rad, and filled it up with water. When I started the car again (to blend the water and remaining coolant), the engine started surging about 2 minutes after I started it.
I have filled the rad up, but cannot understand why the engine is now surging everytime. I hesitate to do the repair when the engine is operating like this.
Could it be an air lock/pocket? If so, how do I remove it?
(car is getting tired, but worth the $10.00 bottle of sealer, if it works)
have the same problem?
