are you leaking coolant? do you have fluid in the radiator?

yeah check your fluids. since you have a boosted teg it could be so many other things. do you have an IC blocking the radiator? is you car tuned right?

maybe the water pump, cuz it sounds like the collant isn't circulating properly, but also if you dont have the right mixture of coolant/ antifreeze w/ water you can have leakage problems/ overheating problems. also you could have your whole cooling sys. flushed out, if none of those work, then your car just sux.

First, buy a new radiator cap. Second, before you start your car, when it is COLD, remove the old radiator cap. Then start your car. Let the car idle until the cooling fans kick on. Add coolant as the coolant level drops as the car warms up. Hopefully what this will do is release the air that I assume is in your coolant system. What should happen if you make sure that the coolant level is topped off while the car is heating up, is that air bubbles should be rising to the surface. Once the fans kick on, in theory, all the air should be out of the system. Once the fans are done cycling, put on the new radiator cap and all should be well. Don't worry if some of the coolant overflows. This is normal for the coolant level to fluctuate up and down as the vehicle heats up. Just make sure the coolant level remains visably close to the top of the radiator so that you can tell if air actually escapes.

bleed your cooling system and start over with a 70/30 mix. no need for 3 thermostats in 6 months.
That's what I said. :D I just figured he would try and do it through the valve that most honda motors have, which is NOT the right way. Unless you want coolant all over your motor. :rolleyes
