Car Temperature Gauge

Asked by Jul 11, 2018 at 10:55 PM about the 1998 Honda Civic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a 1998 Honda Civic almost a year ago, when I
first got it it acted just fine until about 2 weeks in and my
engine started to overheat. We figured since the car had
barely been driven in years we would have a few problems
with it but we didn’t know it would get this bad. After my
car overheated, we took it to the repair shop, both of my
hoses busted. Not only that but the repairman said that
the my car does leak coolant. After that my car would
occasionally get hot, even during winter. It wouldn’t get
too bad and sometimes it would go down on its own, so
we just kept constantly keeping an eye on the coolant and
refilling it from time to time. Recently, I’ve been traveling a
farther distance from home to work almost everyday, and
it’s starting to give me more problems. Sometimes, my car
will start to get hot while I’m driving slow or sitting at a red
light, but start to go back down once I start driving again.
Other times it will continue to rise until I’m forced to pull
over and let my car cool off. Not only this but my check
engine light often comes on and goes off at random times.
And finally a ringing sound comes from my car, often
when I hit the brakes or turn, at this point I have
absolutely no idea what the problem is. Does anyone
know what could possibly be wrong?
