    Default Civic 1997: Heating up.

    Dear All,

    The car is installed with thermostate valve and automatic fan. Now problem is that the auto fan start when the temprature guage is around 3 quarters or even more. is this the problem with the fan switch or the themostate valve? from last night i am running on direct fan and need to resolve the problem ASAP. Please help. even on direct fan and on bumper to bumper driving or on high steap the temprature still goes a bit up from half.
    One thing more i have installed the thermostate valve almost a month age before that there was no themostate valve installed. after installing i have to change the themostate switch once and now this problem occured. i think i should remove the thermostate valve.

    Regards

    If the fan turns on when the temperature reaches midway, then the switch is fine. The problem could have been trapped air that was released when you removed the thermostat valve.

    Thermostat valve has nothing to do with the radiator fan, it only controls the flow of coolant. But now that you have removed it, check the working of the valve and replace it if required.

    Then bleed air from the system and you are good to go.
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    install a new thermostat valve and purge the air from the system before closing the radiator cap, driving with no valve will result in overcooling which is very bad for the engine.

    get a kaabli valve brother. get it from an engine, preferably. i am sure the problem will go away. and you will have to test more than one to ensure that it is working correctly. some kaabli ones also do not work well and the new ones available do not comply with the exact heat requirements.
