Re: 08 civic warm up issues

I just change my thermostat and I didn't see much improvement when the weather is close to -30C. Anything to look for ?


Hi live in Winnipeg too and my 2001 honda civic is doing exactly the same thing. Please let me know if you find out what is causing this to happen.

What is the rating on your thermostat? That is - at what water temp will it open? Common ratings are 185/195/205 degrees F (don't know what that would be in Celsius). If you have the 185, the coolant will not provide enough heat to warm the car at those temps. I have a 205 degree F in my 86 Civic and it works well at temps ranging from 90F in the summer to -70F in the winter....Just a thought>

On the nose. North Pole Alaska to be precise.
