Please honda civic owners and technical geeks .Please confirm this .
When the radiator cap is OFF .The radiator blows water off when accelerated .Please perform this test on your civics and reply ....
I repeat ,when i start my car ,and do not cap the radiator .and push the accelerator the radiator blows water out .
with radiator cap off start the car if the water is blown out of the radiator......
man you are in trouble.....
min one complete day at wksp and 5000/- RS.....
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...?
ur head gaskit has blown my friend
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
when i start the car ,water slowly comes out. But when i accelerate ,the water blows out. whats that ?
the heat gauge shows ,normal heat .Like the needle goes in the middle .
when i start the car i see few bubles ,but then bubbles stop showing up.
yes the radiator is'nt reducing that much water.
If i stop and cool the engine ,the water level remains almost the same.
i want to see what general feedback comes from civic owners.
how much water is it reducing everyday..and how much do you drive everyday,
what is that supposed to mean
i don't drive that much ,.But even after 100 KM when i stop the car on night ,and check the water level in the morning ,it shows normal level.
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
