Engine Cooling problem
2002 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 193, 00 miles
My car overheated. It blew the overflow cap off and needed to replace the radiator cap and I have no leakage that I can see but have to put antifreeze in every day. Not alot but alittle bit. I havent overheated since but after driving for a period of time ithe tempature guage goes up if im in traffic. Not everytime though. If I put the heat on it goes down and once I start getting airflow it goes back down. I have checked for leaks--water coming out of tailpipe, no wter in oil, no hoses leaking that I can see. Am I just being over protected or could there be another problem that im not seeing? I thought maybe the thermostat needs replaced but I dont have the money to keep replacing parts that arent really broken. Could you please help me out?
