    are you tryin to say that your civic's headgasket is blown.. and all civic owners should check their car's headgasket by this method...?


    does your car overheat..., does it mix oil and water...?
    Do the environment a favour, Use less airconditioning .. and please walk to the shop to get a pack of cigarretes..its only a 3 min walk..

    if ur radiator isnt reducing too much water then its okk.. secondly look for air bubbles in water if there are bubbles then it is gaskit problem for sure but spilling a little amount of water out without cap isnt a clear sign of gaskit problem

    the heat gauge shows ,normal heat .Like the needle goes in the middle .

    drive ur car for whole day or like 100 kms and then check the water level if it is very less then its ok but if its even 1/4 of a ltr then its gaskit problem...
    secondly if bubbles settle down after few secs then its ok.


    what i would recomend u is that check how much water is reduced after an interval and then get it checked from some experienced mechanic.. it can also be a radiator problem
