Make it a habit to check the temperature gauge every 5-10 miles. The temperature gauge can tell you a lot about the car`s health. The needle moving from its usual position in traffic only slightly, for example, is an indicator of a failing thermostat. If you cannot look at the temperature needle then pay attention to the acceleration. A car that is harder to

accelerate or pickup speed could be an indication of an overheating motor. Overheating is one of the most common problem for the summer traveler. A good trip begins with a positive thought of confidence and a vision of action to take when overheating occurs. Carry with you at least 1 gallon of water (preferably 1 gallon plain water and 1 gallon of premix coolant. ) 1. ) The water pump belt is inspected for oil soak or for cracks. 2. ) The water pump is not making any noise. 3. ) The upper radiator hose is inspected for wear or weaknesses. 4. ) The upper plastic part of the radiator is checked for cracks - a cracked radiator leaves white water marks, but won`t show signs of the crack or the liquid. 5. ) Hoses are checked for pinhole leaks - indicated by white calcium-like marks on or near the leaking hose. An efficient cooling system requires coolant, a heat exchanger, a fan, a water pump, and a thermostat to regulate the operating temperature of the engine for performance, fuel economy and emissions. Since Honda uses a fragile aluminum head, the longevity of the car is dependant on how many overheating the car has undergone. Strictly speaking, the cooling system is second to the oil circulatory system in terms of importance. An overheating engine should be taken seriously. If not, then your cylinder compression readings could be out of specifications permanently, unless the motor is completely overhauled. The benefits of a...
