Default Re: civic engine heating up ???


hello

i've got an older civic and today noticed that the engine was heating u
going up to H, got to a gas station and stopped and noticed that there wa
no coolant......bought some coolant and this seemed to help. Everytime i a
cruising it is fine it is when i stop at a light it creeps up and when
accelerate that it creeps up for a bit. Does it take some time for th
coolant to make it everywhere and work? After adding the coolant i hav
about a 5 mile ride home and it was still acting funny

any ideas
Ron check your basics first like:

-does the cooling fan come on when the engine is hot
-have you changed the thermostat
-is the rad and resevoir full
-can you see any leaks
-do you find yourself adding coollant regularly
