    Default Civic VTi Prosmatec Heatup Questions

    Salam all, hope everyone's doing well.

    A month ago, my relatives had to swap their VTi Prosmatec's engine with a Honda D17A engine, as the original one had rust within the engine block. Anyways, the swap was all fine and we ran the car around for a week or so. When we took the car from Hyderabad to Dadu, the car would start heating up on the AC, just between the mid-line and 'H' line. I'd turn the AC off and the dial would come back down again. Do note that we put radiator coolant and on checking the car later on, the coolant was still in the radiator.

    My question is, is this kind of behavior normal or should we be concerned? BTW: The fan is automatic and the car was on CNG during this. I would really appreciate any advice and help regarding this.

    Till Later,

    Twisted.

    Do a compression test, the reading should be 200psi +/- 28 psi across all four cylinders. Used heads usually get their gaskets replaced so its no wonder your's has been done too.

    Also Check car's spark plugs, they should be cold type especially when on CNG, NGK BKR6EY-11 or Denso K20RU-11.

    Sir

    Maybe your A/C compressor is taking too much load from Engine?

    First get the radiator serviced and check whether fan is working fine or not....after this if problem still persist check the thermostat valve...if ul not get rid of problem then check the Head Gasket (Open the radiator if u see bubbles or foam on water surface then gasket problem).
