I have a 2001 honda civic that continues to get hot when i am sitting and idling for more then 3 minutes or so. Then when I rev the motor or start to drive down the road the temperature will return to normal. I replaced the thermostat but it still has the same problem, although since I replaced the thermostat it seems to not get hot as fast as it used to. I am thinking maybe I got a defective thermostat or possibly the water pump is out. Just wondering if anyone else has encountered a similar problem.
