    Unhappy Car Engine Over-Heating

    Urgent Help Needed: Car overheating each time i drive

    I have a 2005 Honda City Automatic Transmission. 3 years back instead of overhauling my engine, we replaced it and due to lack of same engine had to get a 1.5L Engine (vs. 1.3L factory fitted). About two years back, I faced a thermal issue and got the radiator cleared out but no leakages but minor pipe issues. The account was opened and each year in summer the car would overheat.. The issue has never been found as to why it does so as there is no leakage in the radiator.

    For the past two days, despite putting water daily in the morning and rechecking, the car is overheating with zero water left in the radiator when i check. Can anyone guide me to a good mechanic/garage in Gulberg, Cantt area in Lahore.

    Will appreciate your help.. really worried that the engine might cease..

    Regards,
    Nabeel

    why have you been using water instead of coolant? The cooling system might have been rusted

    u must have blown the gasket by now sure shot.constant heat up
    not sure about the extent of damage done. if facing and new gasket would fix it
    when opening up the head and all, do change the water body as well
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....
