    Default Overheating in City Vario

    hi friends, i have faced a problem this summer that while driving on highways first when i cross 3000 rpm the AC stops functioning, and if continued driving without AC the car would heat up,,,, otherwise the engine performance is too gud. Once i faced a problem of blocked theromostate valve but i changed it,,,, can some one tell what could be the problem?????
    thanks

    Sir if your temperature needle remain at half way mark or slightly higher, its normal, it also occurs in my 05 Civic.

    Is your Fan A/T, is it running with proper speed, clean the dust or carbon, if any.

    Also check the heat range of your spark plugs, with mostly unleaded petrol that we have in Pakistan spark plugs heat and get dirty very quickly.

    Also service the radiator and use the Honda long life coolant, its already premixed so you do not have to do anything.

    I think check your Thermostat for the A/T Fan
    Check Radiator Cap Condition
    Check Radiator and Condensor Fins Condition
    Check A/T Functioning or not properly while on Highway i think no need of Fan as Air is enough to cool down the Engine and Radiator Fluid

    Always use Good Quality Coolant and also flush it at 40000 km.
