    Default Heat Up Of Honda Civic 97

    Assalam o Alaikum,
    i have got a honda civic 97 vti, 4 days ago i went to a AC mechanic to start the AC for me, the Mechanic took out the radiator, cleaned it, installed new air intake, to cut the crap he did everything & the AC started working fine. Now when I am driving the car it heats up like hell, even if u r standing near the front tyre u will feel the heat coming out of car & while the AC is turned on the car drop downs its speed...I met the mechanic & asked him about the head gaskit, its also fine according to mechanic.. though its Engine is 1600cc.. Kindly Suggest me a Solution for that... thnx..

    Are your cars fans working properly ? Are they running automatic or direct ?
    My City was also heating up a lot and since it doesn't have a temperature guage I couldn't notice and it caused a lot of problems like AC tripping ,stalling
    My car had 2 fans out of which one was working the other was dead so got a replacement fan and the car never heated again

    how are you measuring temperature? looking at the gauge or going on the feel of heat?

    in summer it is normal for engine bay to heat up. Xulifqar bhai ir right. you must measure the exact temperature car heats to. maybe it is just a feeling or maybe AC compressor is hard.

    if you assume its heating up by the hot air exhausting from the engine bay then you are pretty wrong. the hot air is very normal to be exhausting under the car as the radiator and condenser are cooled down.
