    Gud am mga mam and sir, tanong ko lang po ung temperature gauge kasi ng car ko is nasa half level ng gauge(medyo mataas p ng konti dun, pero konting konti lang...) normal po ba ito? or may problema na, di naman po sya tumataas kahit natrapik ako or what, di rin sya bumababa kahit sobrang lamig, gumagana naman po ung aux fan ko... may problem n po kaya ung car radiator ko? bagong palit po pala water pump ko kasabay ng timing belt (pero before and after ganun n sya)

    please advice me po, 1997 civic vti matic po...

    Tingin ko hindi pa naman yan overheat, wala pa naman steam coming from the radiator or sound of boiling water inside the radiator?

    Check if the radiator cap is ok, check also the thermostat.

    ok pa yan, it means that ur thermostat is still functional, kasi whether traffic o what not, the same pa rin ang temp. mo.

    errr , ibig mo sabihin hindi talaga bumababa kahit kelan??? Kapag ini-on mo yung makina sa umaga nasa baba ba yung needle tapos tumataas after a while? Kung hindi pa defective yang gauge mo and kung accurate pa talaga siya, ok lang as long as hindi siya umaabot sa pula... Sometimes tuwing mainit ang weather the needle could go as high as below the red mark and that's normal.

    afaik, normal lang yan. yung normal temp sa mga ek civics nasa gitna, unlike sa eg civics, nasa 1/4 lang. as long as the needle doesn't reach the red zone.

    pag umaga, syempre mababa sya then tumataas up to mga .4mm from the center. ang ibig ko pong sabihin n hindi sya bumababa or tumataas is pag na reach n nya ung temp n un, dun na sya... (sorry to mislead you) nagwowory lang ako baka overheat n ung tawag dun eh.

    and meron bang over heat n constant lang, or pagnagoverheat tataas p talaga ang needle ng gauge?


    madaming salamat po sa nagreply

    Anything out of the red zone is still considered within operating range.

    Of course if the temperature keeps going up to almost the red zone even in normal operating conditions (e.g. driving around town, etc.) then you better find out what's wrong.

    Sa tingin ko sa msg mo normal pa yung car mo. Usually kasi yung needle indicator ng temp gauge mo constant na yan kpag mainit na yung engine mo.

    Mapapansin mo lang na bababa ng konti yung indicator kpag nsa hi-way ka na, meaning deretso na takbo mo.

    Exp ko na overheat,.- Hindi constant ang indicator at tuloy2x lang na tumataas hanggang maabot nya yung red marks, then kpag ini-stop mo engine, uusok yung makina mo at yung indicator mo sa temp lalong tataas ang reading and worst kpag pinatakbo mo pa engine, kakatok na yan at pinaka-mahinang damage nyan mababali yung mga pistons.
