1998 Honda Civic 250,000 miles using antifreeze

mike8149August 16, 2007

My son has a 98 Honda Civic that is using about 2 cups of anti freeze a day. Also, the car heats up with the AC on and/or driving in city traffic. Apparently there is no antifreeze leaking that is obvious. This has been going on for a month or so.

I'm going to do a pressure test on it this weekend but I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and could give me some ideas on what to look for? Worse case scenario is a warped head but I'm hoping it's not that. All suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

If it has an electric fan, make sure that's working. Heating up under the conditions described would be consistent with it not working.
