Engine Cooling problem
2000 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles
My 2000 civic 1.6L. Is over heating. Recentinly I was driving it and the upper hose blew. At first it started backfiring then I put it in -N- so I can get to the side of the road. So far I have changed all the hoses. Checked if there was any leaks around the radiator and back side of motor. Nothing. Now that I drive it doesnt overheat unless im at high rpm for a long period of time. Especially when I turn my AC on. When I turn off then car. I check for leaks again cause my reserver keeps getting lower. I can also smell burned cooliant, but I see nothing leaking. I dont know what it could be except for the water pump and head gasket. Is there a way I can check these or do I
have a malfuntion else where. I also replaced the
thermostate. This is the First motor problem I have had with this car.
