Vapor Lock?


Recommended Posts

After driving around in the 107º afternoon temp, I parked while the temp gauge was maxed out.   Returning a few minutes later, the gauge was back to the normal 1/2 way mark, but the car would crank & only sputter a little.  I'm guessing this was vaporlock, which I thought was a problem from a bygone era of older carbuerated cars.  This is the first time this has happened on any of my vehicles for around 20 years  - the 05 Civic is a recent purchase as a project car/daily driver.  Itc happened again later while I was getting cash at the Bank drive-thru.  In each instance, letting it sit foe=r about 15 minutes.  Is this normal or a well known problem??
