    El Paso, TX now, originally from Fresno, CA
    I have a 93 civic hatch with a JDM B16A swap. Just recently, within the past 2 weeks, my car has started to overheat. The gauge climbs up to about 3/4 high, and will go back down eventually. Sometimes downshifting helps. It does it everytime I drive longer than 5 minutes, but not so much at slower speeds.

    I have a Koyo aluminum radiator (brand new), just flushed the coolant and replaced with new, Flex-a-lite slim fan, which is coming on, Samco hoses, fairly new thermostat.

    Thanks for everyone's help in advance. I really need to get this figured out before my engine blows.... :(
