My 98 honda civic is overheating. The antifreeze resovoir is full, but when I open the radiator cap, there is none in there. I poured antifreeze in the radiator only to start overheating again within minutes. Could this be the thermostat not opening to let the antifreeze from the resovoir into the radiator? I also noticed the fan at the front of the car was not on, should it be when the car is overheating?
