98 Honda keeps overheating
Hello, did any of the shops check for combustion gas in the coolant? Also is there any white smoke coming from the exhaust?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I did not hear anything about combustion gas but was told that there was no white smoke. Thanks. I appreciate this.

Have them or yourself run a combustion gas test. You can rent the tool at most parts stores and buy the fluid. It's a very easy test to perform and will let you know if you have a cracked head or partially blown head gasket. (Which is what I suspect)

I will rent the tool myself from Autozone and do the test. Thanks again and maybe I will not have to buy a newer car.

Sounds good, if you run into any problems just reply back.
