Anyone who has been following the post over the last several months know that my 95 lx has been nothing but a fu**ing nightmare for me. Well I am having a problem keeping it running cool now. I will take it out for a drive and the temp gauge will bury itself all the way on the hot side. When I stop and look under the hood coolant is boiling out of the coolant resevoir. I have replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, fan, and radiator cap and still no luck :confused:. I read somewhere on here where you can fill the coolant system thru the vent plug and that is what i did :rolleyes:. Could that have caused the problem? If so what can I do to fix it? Any ideas at all? Thanks for any help.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but...
Do a search for blown head gaskets .
It sounds like they are in the process of going.

have not figured it out yet, have not had time to mess with it due to work schedule. I dont think it is the hg due to the fact there is no signs what so ever of leakage. No oil in the coolant and vice versa. Just to ease my mind which way should the thermostat go? Does the spring side go towards the rad or the motor?

thats what I thought, looks like i might be stripping it down and retorquing the heads. Anyone think that could be the problem?
