    Default CIVIC 2000 vti Auto Heating Problem

    Hi,
    i know this is not the first thread about this specific problem but mine is a little different.
    i am driving my car on patrol only. few days back while going to murree (up hill) via new expressway, while on final incline (on last leg), the temperature gauge started rising up... it reached a little above the last quater. i stopped the car and after 3 mins the temp was normal again.....

    now i need to go to lahore on coming weekend... and i really dont know if my car will be able to cross salt range (motorway) while coming back without temp gauge rising to dangerous limits.

    i have planned to service the radiator but em not sure this is the only solution or not

    please advise

    I cried because I had no TURBO, until I met a person who had no VTEC

    Does it reduce water in the radiator?

    thats because of the small stupid radiators our honda's have
    transmission oil also has to share the small tank and doing uphill gear hunting increases temperature.
    i also used to face problem going to murree/nathia gali. (my car doesnt like that region i suppose)
    Pir sohawa or salt range is a piece of cake for it

    i have already damaged my cars engine from overheating. threw it out. got another. got a bigger radiator kabli one
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    The boiling point of a liquid is raised by increasing the pressure and reduced by lowering the pressure.As one goes higher the atmospheric pressure decreases at about 300 meters above sea level water boils at 90 degree centigrade,i think u got my point,so by replacing the radiator cap according to atmospheric pressure u can overcome the over heating problem.
    Never loose hope in life,every step gives u something.
