"why is my shit overheating?"

haha, best headline ever. :laff:

Check

1) coolant level, make sure none is leaking

2) thermostat, if it's stuck closed it will overheat quick

3) water pump

good luck! It was fuggin hot here today. My oil temperature went over 225 F in normal stop-and-go street driving :eek:

I had a '84 Accord that started overheating all the time so I replaced the thermostat and it still overheated so I took back the new thermostat and got another new one and that solved the problem. I guess the first thermostat was just from a bad batch or something. You might want to try that and also what Fulgore243 said. Good luck.

GOOD NEWS!!!! my shit is normal again...... why? i didnt do anything to it, i just noticed it wasnt overheating anymore so i took it to the highway in the country near my house and i topped out every gear and my thermostat didnt move at all, but my starter decided to self destruct, but i think thats unrelated, i bought it rebuilt from pep boys, takin it back today
