I have a 98 DX hatch, automatic that is my daily driver.
For a while, the car was overheating so I started replacing and testing things to find what it is and I've gone through almost every single thing that I possibly could.
I have replaced:
-Thermostat (got it today, old one was only 3 months old)
-Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor
So as you can see, I have replaced everything but the fan, hoses and wiring.
I suspect it to be something with the thermostat or thermostat housing because, when I popped by hood, I found THIS....
That ballooned hose would indicate that the thermostat is blocking flow and causing pressure build-up, yes?
