I am the original owner of a 2002 honda civic ex. It now has over 334,000 miles on it. It has run perfectly up until september of 2010. Problem: Engine cuts off while driving when the temps are greater than 90 degrees outside. If you let it set for about 15 minutes, the engine runs fine. Multiple friends have tried to help me. We changed the thermostat and catalytic converter w/ exhaust. It was better up until we had a hot October day and it happen again. It only happens with high outside temps. It has been running fine all winter long but I am afraid that it will reoccur as soon as temps increase.
I also have an oil leak that is minor. I do have an 2003 engine that someone sold me but I have not payed to have this placed yet because everyone said it is not my engine that is the problem.
I did take it to a Honda dealership. They put it on the computer and nothing showed. They saw it was overheating. The only thing they told me was that I had an "air bubble" in my cooling sytem that they removed.
