    i need some help o' honda gurus! i have a 96 coupe with a 00SI swap... for the past few month months my car has been overheating when I am at idle, the car will run really hot, then drop, get hot again, then drop:confused:

    i changed the thermostat first, problem continued... then i changed to a dual core radiator from a german spec vti... still overheating. I have not seen any oil in my radiator, and there seems to be no loss in power?? I am hoping it is not the head gasket cuz I am broke as a mofo! Also, my heater cluster in the car is all mixed up? Could this be a clue as to what the problem is????

    thanks for your time!
    mike

    make sure you have enough coolant. check the oil to make sure there isn't any coolant mixed in there. make sure your plumbing isn't plugged up. other than that, i'm not sure.

    that's a contradictory statement. ;)
    is your fan turning on/engaging/activating?

    Its right on the thermostat housing, you'll have to unplug a connector to get it off.
