    Default Honda City overheating

    Salam,
    The latest problem in my car Since the last 3 weeks the car tends to overheat reduce water and water boils in the reservoir after a drive of more than 10 mins. the red light starts blinking and i stop the car at the nearest fuel station or commercial area which in Karachi isnt very far
    The car has no coolant (tap water) T stat valve is installed and fans are direct and A/C wasn't used
    Now i showed it to a mechanic here in my area he said that the pipe which goes from the water pump to engine block is leaking and needs replacement he touched the lower part of the pipe (where it goes into the engine block) and water was on his finger i checked it too but yesterday when i went to plaza to get the pipe replaced the mechanic said that your fan isnt working (1 out of 2 was working) because its shroud was broken and the motor was bad so replaced the entire thing with a kabli one we went from Saddar to nursery to drop off the person I went with and after going like a few meters ahead the stupid red light started blinking and water was again boiling
    After getting a replacement fan for 4k im really pissed apparently their is no leakage but still the water the water level decreases and the starts boiling
    what could be the problem ? And because the stupid car doesnt have a heat guage im not sure about the temperature

    Is radiator cleaning effective ?
    a few people have asked me to get the radiator cleaned and check if the car is still heating

    I went to get the radiator serviced but the guy said that your radiator is done so cleaning wont help much
    he was busy so i said i'll come by in an hour
    he said that it would be better to get the radiator replaced with a new one

    All these new ones with plastic top and bottoms have a drain plug, those local Awami radiators did not have the plug.

    remedy for no drain tap is

    1 x large plastic tub


    undo the lower radiator pipe and watch all coolant flow out - if the car was designed by sleeping beauty then use a funnel with 2 inch nozzle and aim the nozzle to the tub.

    Yep- that stuff is poisonous.

    I saw a mechanic open a radiator pipe and let the coolant spill on the floor. He has ducks in his workshop and two of them drank it. X_X
    It was cheap, dilute, green coolant from a mehran. Thank God they are still alive..

    I filled the radiator with water today to make sure no leaks are present and started the car the time was 12:30 Pm and i let the car idle for a few minutes the temperature stayed at 87'C then took out the car the temperature went to 111'C max and was gradually decreasing as i slowed down the car travelled 2.5 km's
    Then again I went to my examination centre and this time the temperature hit 119'C and the red light came on and the red light started blinking and turned off the car on the way back the car didn't heat up
    Is the car still heating because of using plain water ? or something else ?

    It shouldn't go above 98 :/
    The plain water has nothing to do with the heating up.
    Btw- which centre, are you giving your o levels?

    The radiator didn't help much
    Now I'm confused what to do :/
    Could a bad water pump be the cause ?
