Replaced the radiator hose, it's still overheating


Asked by Oct 30, 2014 at 01:13 PM about the 1998 Honda Civic DX Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi all, I have a 98 honda civic and have just replaced the cracked upper radiator hose.
The car is still overheating (although slowly) when driven. Any ideas?

You still have a leak. Install a radiator pressure tester and pressurize the system. Look for leaks and hissing sounds. Also test your radiator cap for proper relief pressure. The cooling system cannot properly cool is it can't maintain pressure.
