Head Gasket May Fail if Engine Overheats on Honda Accord

The head gaskets are prone to fail if the engine overheats. When the temperature climbs above the normal operating temperature, turn the heater on the hottest setting, pull over, and shut the engine off to allow the engine to cool down.

When the radiator went and car over heated after replacing radiator, I noticed some oil when replacing spark plugs and the amount of oil increased.
Duh, any car will blow a head gasket when overheated! Stop driving when it gets hot genius!

Yet another very expensive repair that cost over $1600 to repair correctly. This car has many issues. Would not recommend it.
