Have a 1993 honda civic, was on the way to school this morning and about halfway there it loses a lot of power, i see a big cloud of smoke coming from the exhaust and it overheats really bad. I pull over for a few minutes try it again same thing. So i get it towed home, while moving it about 10 feet up the driveway it barely ran, idling at like 200 rpm's. Throw it in park and bam its as good as new, Power is back, not overheating, no smoke, no rough idle, took it around the block fine. This has happened a couple times ( loss of power, its never overheated before) And its also lost zero coolant, any idea what the problem could be? Thought headgasket but wouldnt that be a problem thats always around and doesnt just come and go, and plus the fact i havent lost any coolant?
