    Default HELP:CIVIC 2006 VTi Heatup for the first time ....what needs to be done now??

    Salam and Ramadan mubarak to all pw'ers

    today my car got heat up for the first time in 7 years
    when I stopped at the signal I saw my cars temperature almost between the Middle mark and H level i.e on the 70percent mark of gauge I quickly tuned off the ac and the temperature started to fall back to normal and I drove back home which was hardly 2kms aways from that point ... upon inspection the water level in the plastic bottler attached with the radiator was full but when I opened the radiator knowing it'd be hot(burnt my hand too but luckily nothing serious) it was full of pressure and steam I ran away leaving the radiator cap open and the water started to erupt like a volcano LOL ...when the radiator cooled down I filled it with water till the top and started the car, in hardly 1 min the water started jumping out of the radiator like almost a foots height from the radiator top and steam was coming along with it if although the temperature was on half.... from last week I'm noticing that the water level is reducing it self and when ever I open the radiator it need atleast 1 glass of water on daily basis although I replaced my head gasket when the mechanic opened the head to fix the valves ( heres a link to that https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/eng...-issue-missing ) but could this be because the gasket not fit properly and has worn out as its been 10days I changed the gasket or is it due to a bad thermostat valve and faulty radiator cap ....PLZ HELP ME OUT guys I had never thought my car would be giving me issues like these and thats all because of the stupid cng guy :@

    I didnt replace the head gasket for the heatup problem ...I actually replaced engine valves a few days before the car got heatup and since engine head was taken out for that I had to replace the head gasket as it cannot be used again once you open the head ...thats why Ive provided the link in the first post ... I actually was a bit worried that the car is heating up as the head gasket might not have been fit properly or the mechanic might have put an inferior quality gasket ...as for the heatup problem it happened just once that the temperatre rose to a bit over half ...I had just taken off the tstat valve and the problem has vanished m.A

    Little confused as to how something from 2006 is failing so easily. You said your head needed to be opened for valve work. Not expected of a car that new.

    Anywho, new thermostat valve STAT! Its a MUST.

    Coolant + water mixed. No water only scene please.
