Sounds like your electric cooling fan(behind the radiator) is not functioning. The thermostat might not be working,making the fan
not come on at all. I once put a toggle switch in my dash,when I had
an old CRX, just to turn on the fan, or it would overheat.

check if you have a viscous fan hub as from what you describe it appears that it has failed and is not driving the fan when idling. If you have an electric fan then it is not working properly if at all.

Honda civic 2002 overheating


Had the same problem with two cars I had. First was fixed with a radiator flush and refill, second was fixed with a new water pump and belt. I would also look at the radiator and see if there is a lot of bugs and other gunk on it. That can cause the heat not to dissipate without the speed of driving pushing air over it. Pressure washer or coin-op car wash wash high pressure sprayer can clean that off.

Idles up and down after warm, but goes away in reverse and drive. 1993 honda accord


I had the same problem with my honda. On the throttle body there is a screw that controls idle speed. If your idle speed is around 800-1000 rpm in neutral, tighten the screw a quarter turn each try until the idle speed is around 1500 RPM. Did this stop the idle?

My cars heater is not working, I have recently replace the Coolant, and the thermostat, and am not sure what to look for next. This is a 1993 Honda Civic CX 2 door hatchback.


first check to see if the hoses to the heater core are hot. if they are not hot do the following.
Check the valve where the heater core hoses go into the cab, if the valve is good , you may have to wash out the heater core by removing both hoses at the firewall and run some water through the heater core until the water comes out clean of rust and debris.
