1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 172000 miles
i hope you can help me with this situation that I have. A 1997 honda civic v-tech 2 door front wheel drive and it keeps overheating. First it was the thermostad and I got a brand new one, then it kept overheating and I change the radiator and the hoses and now every time that I accelerate the temp would jump and stay hot. I checked the fan and it turns on after a while however I dont think its good enough because the car stays hot and I have to turn on the heater full blast and it will start to go down slowly, unless im driving fast and the air would cool the engine, but when I check the level of the antifreeze the reserve tank its full but the radiator its empty and I have to fill the radiator with coolant so it can cool down, also when I stop the rpm's are very low, the car would start to shake like if it was about to turn off. Also when the car overheats I would run it with the heater on to cool the engine down and after a while like 30 min of driving if I keep the car at 60mph the engine light would come on, and if I try to go faster it sounds like if im forcing the car the gear would take a long time to change, so I hope this is very details and hope you guys can help me with this situation I would really apreciated it. Thanks
