    please help. i am experiencing high temp after driving 5 hours on idle. napupuno ng tubig ang aking reservoir tank. I just notice, is it normal when my aircon on and my window open. my aircon automatically switch off after 5seconds and turns on again for 30 seconds and again turns off for 5 seconds... is this normal for a civic 2002 vtec? I have noticed how my aircon switch on and off because everytime my aircon switch off, my two fans will also switch off.

    try muna natin mag isolate. malakas pa ba ang radiator fan? at baka barado na ang radiator subukan mo muna pa overhaul ang radiator. baka kaya ang aircon nag switch off kasi overheat na ang makina. subukan mo muna itong dalawa, rad fan at rad overhaul

    as far as i know. diba dapat diretsong on muna ang aircon until such time na mareach nya temp based sa setting ng themostat ko? yung thermostat ng aircon ko nakasagad lang naman yun kasi di ko ginagalaw. ganun din napasin ko na activity ng aircon nung tumaas ang temp ko after driving 5 hours tapos nung huminto ako mga 5 minutes then yun tumataas na temp ko below 3/4 ng gauge

    i have the same problem now and from my readings, this could be a sign of a damaged head gasket. you might want to look into it also

    gamerdok same ba unit mo? civic es ba? please obeserve naman your aircon activity kung after switch on, open window then please observe kung after 30 seconds, automatic mag off ang aircon within 5 seconds siya nakaoff then on ulit for 30 seconds. my point here is diba dapat matagal na naka on ang aircon considering na nakaopen ang aking windows. saka lang siya dapat mag automatic off after na reach niya yung temperature based sa aircon thermostat.

    pwede rin na nag-high pressure yung refrigerant kaya nag cut-off yung compressor kahit hindi pa na reach yung desired temperature sa loob ng car.
    isang cause nito ay slow/defective condenser fan. maaring umaandar ang fan mo pero mabagal. in effect ay yung radiator fan na lang ang nagpapalamig sa radiator at AC condenser. dalhin mo sa aircon repair shop, mostly ay free naman check-up and estimate.

    Dun sa same model Civic ng friend ko. Sira yung thermoswitch (a Php700 part, AFAIK). Pinapalitan ko lang kina Jorge sa Jorge Radiator shop. Dun namin dinala kasi akala namin radiator problem.

    Kapag sira thermoswitch, ayaw umandar ng fans kahit mainit na (or late aandar). Eh nirekta namin sa battery yung fan, ok ang takbo. So na-isolate naming thermoswitch problem.

    Normal naman pag talagang hi pressure yung reservoir ng radiator mapuno kaya dapat talaga sundin yung water level ng reserve, nacheck mo na ba kung ok yung sensor na nakakabit sa evaporator? kung deffective na yun ganun mangyari,as you said pinalitan mo na din yung thermostat, thermoswitch and bagong overhaul na radiator, pero mas ok pa din dalhin mo sa car aircon na alam mo magaling gumawa.
