Slight overheat at low rpms/standstill


Humphries

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem with my civic. It has just now started to heat up to about 3/4 the way when I am in standstill traffic. When I rev it up to about 2000 rpm or when I start moving it does fine and returns to optimal temperature. I am flushing the radiator tomorrow and filling up with full 50/50 antifreeze instead of the water that is in there now.

 

 

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

thats what my dad was telling me.. do you think i should get the Hi-flow thermostat or just get OEM replacement?

 

they sell the same thing as a mugen thermostat at autozone. just dont know how necessary it really is.

cant go wrong with oem.

 

but a mugen or spoon thermy would be great too. not just for the name but they work really well. ive always used spoon thermos and rad cap. cant go wrong.

 

hmotors has mugen thermo for 75 and spoony rad cap for 30, good deal
