Engine Cooling problem
1998 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
Please help ! - When I am standing in traffic with the a/c on and even sometimes without no a/c the temperature meter creeps up toward the top. I have replaced all of the hoses, heater hoses. I have replaced the thermostat with a Honda brand one. I replaced the radiator. I also had the engine flushed by a shop that uses a special machine to cleanse the system and add new coolant. It sort of runs a bit better but I did notice that if I have the a/c on in standing traffic or going very slowly the temp. Starts to rise. The radiator fan works when the engine is hot. -- I don't know what else could be the problem. I see that the fill bottle is full after I have driven it for a while one hour or so. The car resumes back to normal temp. When I am going a good speed again. I need to know why this is happening.
I can only afford 10 dollars for now. - Please accept it and thank you for looking into this matter.
have the same problem?
