OldPrelude94 is on a distinguished road
Engine overheating.

Car is a 94 prelude H23A1 stock 230,000 miles. No check engine light. Thermostat has been replaced twice. CTS sensor replaced, temp sender replaced. I think the head gasket is blown just want to verify. This morning I started it dead cold with the rad cap off, fluid immditaly rose and came out of the top of the radiator, no bubbles however. Heat works great and temp can be kept under control if I blast the heat at all times when driving, if I turn the heat off it overheats very quickly. It has yet to boil the coolant, I wont let it but im sure it would. Cooling fan does not work on it's own but both fans will turn on if AC is on, still overheats very quickly. It does not seem to burn coolant and there is no coolant in the engine oil. Any thoughts?

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
