Honda Civic 2003 Temperature Sporadically Rising

Asked by Gabby Apr 09, 2020 at 05:42 AM about the 2003 Honda Civic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So since pretty much the start of winter my car has
been doing this thing where when you turn the heat
on it blows cold air at stops and the temperature
rises until you get moving then the temperature
returns to half and the car starts blowing warm air
again. I should note that the temp rises worse if
the heat isn't on. Once you get going it's fine and
the car has never actually overheated. Now the
check engine light has come on and any speed
below 30 is making the temperature rise and the
heat blow cold. Don't know much about cars and I
will be going this weekend to get the light
diagnosed but would like any guidance as to what
this might be so I don't get the run around at a
shop. With covid-19 I can't really afford it. Not sure
of the miles but the car has never given me issues
before and I've had it two years now.
