    Default Bubbles in radiator when idle and fan off.. with video link...

    Assalamo - o - alykium..

    Car : honda civic 2005

    when i turn my car on with an open radiator cap, bubbles keep forming in the radiator, and when the when the radiator fan turns on the water level lowers a little and bubbles go away. the same happens when the fan turns back off.. the car doesn't heat up according to the temperature gauge because my brother just drove it back from Isalamabad, but what I've noticed is that

    1- My car heater isn't working
    2- It reaches the mid temperature on the morning start faster than it used to.

    posting a video link

    From my experience the engine was over heated this is pure problem of cylinder head gasket which is faulty now. Bubles in radiator is because engine prrssure is leaking throught the gasket to water inlets in head and that prrssure is released through radiator.

    i am unable to access the video u posted but i have had a similar problem with my cultus recently..it got heated for some other reasons and i had a suspicion that the gasket is shot..i went to mechanic he opened up the cap saw bubbles said yes its been shot..had a radiator service a week ago and the fan didnt work so car got heated..anyways there was no white foaming in oil..so wat i did was and wat i would like unto try is ..
    open the cap when the car is cold..
    press the lower main rubber pipe connected to radiator then the upper one..
    start the car with cap open and let it run for 15 to 20 mins..bubbles will emerge along with water level dropping when t valve opens..keep adding water to brim..
    in my case there was air in the system and after that i had no issues Alhamdolilla..do give it a try..

    First get your radiator serviced. If this doesnt works then visit and take advices of some expert mechanics then go ahead if theres gasket issue.

    And please keep an eye on the temp guage while a/c is on on long drives. Dont let the car heat again.
