Overheating issue?

I'll first start off by saying thanks for any input on this. And by introducing myself. I'm hector from so cal and have had this car a lil over a year and I always loved the 4th since my brother had it. Well now to the technical part....


So Im having some weird problem with my car if I'm driving and stop for like 5 minutes the gauge will go up one bar. I turn the car off and turn to switch to the "on" position and everything is back to normal. I've bled the cooling system and it only started doing it once I swapped it the am h23a. The first swap did it and than I sold the engine when I was unemployed and threw another one and it still does the exact same thing? Any thoughts? Im not too savy when it comes to working on cars but I like to learn. Also, I have an exhaust where at the bottom of the header idk if that could be a cause as well

Re: Overheating issue?

when u swapped in the new engine I assume you kept the old radiator. It could be the radiator cap being stuck and not diverting to the overflow, or not taking fluid from the overflow to compensate. I would start with the rad cap. Then, make sure your thermostat is functional

Flushed the whole system, nothing but water came out. Cheap add mechanic. Placed antifreeze fluid now runs like a champ
