i doubt the header is causing the problem but to be sure you can get some DEI header wrap and wrap that thing up, plus it will keep the engine bay much cooler too...

That's the case with any car dude. When you have internal combustion (explosions) happening thousands of times a minute, the metal body containing it is gonna get hot lol. The thermostat meter is relative temperature... middle of the meter means that it's running at normal specified temperatures... it doesn't mean that your engine is "not hot"... it just means it's not hotter than it's supposed to be :-P. I burnt my arm on my header yesterday working on my car, and all I did was start it up, do a k-turn in the street, and then turn it back off....

So to answer your question, yes it is normal for the h22 to have a really hot valve cover... but it is also normal for ANY engine to have really hot valve covers...

Does anyone actually read posts before they respond???? I wasn't referring to your car... I even quoted the guy that I was responding to.



But back to the topic at hand, did you get your car back from the dealer yet? If so, did the new gasket help at all?

just took the head to machine shop gonna pressure check and shave it hope shaving it will give it a lil xta hp. the honda shop said i need to find out what caused it to blow the head gasket i dont i just bought the car fri. the car has 85000 mi. on it maybe some kid ran it to hot any sugg. ther was a lil bit of water on #2 piston but the head gasket looked good . whoever had the car b4 me just put a timing belt on so im probually not gonna replace it. ive already bought another one.

Re: 01prelude overheating

maybe the head got warped a lil bit from running it too hot all the time maybe thats why the gasket still looked good. it probably looked good because you tried to fix it before it got too hot and seriously warped the head. while you have the engine apart you might as well change the water pump and timing belt anyways, and make sure the timing is perfect before you put the belt on.
mine started running hot but it was cuz the fans.
