    Default Honda Civic 97 Vti 1600 EFI engine heatup problem

    Dear Friends
    I've Honda civic Vti 97 model 1600 EFI engine......... the problem is that car is perfectly fine without AC but when i use AC and accelerate it, It starts to heat up........ I've already checked the rediator, cleaned the old one than replaced it to new rediator which has aluminium Bars but problem is still there........... The main reason of my confusion is that it doesnt take heat without AC even i went on 160-170 KM speed on motorway. I went to nathia gali and other hill stations but car didnt take heat..... It only heats up when i accelerate the car with AC even i turned on AC while i was standing in parking for 30 min approx but it didnt rise the heat gage but as i started to drive it and speed it up,,, the heat gage started to rise...........
    Some of mechanic told me that there can be issue with AC unit which is putting load on engine so i replaced the compressor as it was already not working well... i also cleaned the condensor but problem is still there.....
    So kindly advise me about this issue and i'll be greatful if someone can tell me the rates of gass kit and head face charges as well as i want to replace the clutch plate and pressure plate so if anyone can tell me the price of clutch plate and pressure plate.

    sucks!

    the aluminium head of this model is super sensitive. if replacing gasket and facing works for few other eventually have to change the head.
    and dont swap with a D15 head. the timings wont match

    Absolutely rite sir ..

    install the thermostat valve back in the engine - and while doing that check the condition of the waterpump metal inlet pipe with a mirror and light. It should be clean and not packed full of rust. If it is the coolant will never reach the radiator fully and just circle around in the engine.

    To add coolant - remove all of the old coolant/water and use 50% or at least 30% conc coolant in your engine. for 50% mix equal quantity of coolant with water for 30% mix 1 part to 2 parts water, prepare in bucket pour in system and remove air pockets from bleeder nipple - it will be in the front of the engine (if equipped) if not - park the car on a slope facing upwards and fill - while taking out any air pockets.
