Dont overheat this engine, it is compeletly alluminum and you will have costly repairs if you really overheat bad. I think it is your electric cooling fan is shot. Check the wire connection on the fan in front of Rad. Then run engine to normal operating temp. according to your gauge and use a test light to monitor wether there is power to one of the wires going to the fan. Be patient but dont let it overheat. If you have power and no fan, replace fan. If no power go to owners manual and check fuse first and replace. If fuse is ok then find relay and repace. Of course Im assuming that your wiring to the fan is in good condition to begin with.
you may have a bad thermostat,replace and see.
generally if an engine overheats, but then does not overheat when heater is turned on, is a good indication that the engine thermostat is stuck and needs replacing
It sounds like your cooling is not working when you turn on the a/c system...........
no - they're planets. Suns are stars.
Your 1994 Honda Civic will overheat when the thermostat is malfunctioning. The overheated engine can experience the idle to surge. The engine should be turned off immediately.
The most likely cause is an inoperative radiator fan.
when the defroster is turned on, it activates the a/c compressor. the clutch may be locking up on the compressor.
30 minutes before sunset
When I turn my AC on sometimes they come on and sometimes dont, causing it to overheat. I checked the fans by hotwiring from the battery and they turned on everytime.
