    maybe thermostate valve is not working anymore.(its blocked).... plus check again radiator/hose leak,, use proper coolant not water..


    eg: toyota coolant costs 1150rs , and is lot better than the green liquid coolant,, but use after solving problem otherwise u waste yr money



    pls type in english,, hard to understand urdu english mix ,, thks.

    Hey,

    1. Check your Radiator Fan if its turning on or not
    2. Replace or remove your thermostat valve
    3. when car heats up press the coolant hose which is attached from your radiator to your engine and check if you feel any coolant flow may be its clogged up (blocked), so that can be the case as well may be your coolant is not flowing
    4. which color is your coolant, is it green or dirty yellow? if its very dirty then its time to flush your coolant

    so point form
    1. Check radiator Fan
    2. Check thermostat valve
    3. Check for coolant flow
    and
    4. good luck hehehe

    1. if all hose pipes/gasket are fine, check radiator cap/neck.
    2. 1300 rpm is not fine, should be around 800~850. this way, u'd sacrifice fuel economy and in the long run more engine wear.
    3. all i can say, fix the plug wire properly.
    4. get proper A/F setting on CNG, hoping u plug wires/coil are not weak.

    Good luck

    Hello!
    get cars fan and automatic fan switch checked.......maybe fans are not functioning properly........also check radiator fins that they are not blocked causing the heatup..........!
    gaskit can also be the reason..............check engine oil regularly and make sure water not coming with oil...if its so...head gasket was blow......!
    anywayz...
    as far as plug thing is concerned....get its connector checked...maybe its loose on plug so it loosened on some bump.........take it out and make sure plug end was tightened on that........otherwirse....u have to tightened it by plyer...
    Thanxxx

    Pehle tho agar apne radiator ke sath wala extra pani ka daba full kia ho to us se pany kam karde(half).

    agar is se problem solve nahi hota to radiator mechanic saf karwain or cap badlein.it will be nothing more than that.

    its my personal experience with civic.my own car two or three times behaved like that.

    dear bro, as one of my other friend advised u,
    check any leakage if u can see, inspect radiator fan .
    remove thermostate and drive car without,
    change ur radiator cap. buy an original, not kabaria. this cap has also a thermostate function.
    good luck

    Well, Well, Well.... I had the same problem with my 97 EXi Atuomatic. Actually the gear oil is also cooled down using the same radiator. I got following changes done and now its fine now.

    1. Got my radiator changed from single barrel to double barrel.

    2. Replaced the coolent.

    3. Changed the Oil: When I used original Oil by Honda it gave me lots of problems. Now I am using Havoline by Caltex the performance is supervb.

    enjoy your smooth ride.

    ahem and bythe way do check the plastic reservoir bottle ... it leaks minutely only when hot water comes in... remove it from that awkward looking bracket and check it....

    i had the same issue in my civic and ultimately wat i did ws i fitted a bottle of FX (came with a better bracket that doesnt cut the bottle) and got rid of the issue
