I wouldn't call this a design flaw. Many engines will blow something if you
overheat them or run them low on coolant. The engine is designed to run
with coolant in it. If you want to call that a design flaw for a liquid
cooled engine, go ahead.

The only design flaw involved here is between Chea's ears.

Don't tempt him like that.

| I wouldn't call this a design flaw.
I would ; design should be good enough ( with a good safety margin
) for slight &amp; short-duration overheating.

| Many engines will blow something if you overheat them
Only badly designed 1s cannot be overheated for even 2 seconds.
In 3-05, my Mitsubishi 4G15P 's radiator fan did not spin : for 2
seconds before I switched off ignition, water boiled into overflow
bottle, some mineral oil had been heated to tar inside rocker cover.
Yet this engine got no damage, &amp; still works.
In 11-80, my Datsun 120Y's radiator broke upon hitting a bush, I
could still drive car to nearest repair shop ( water reached boiling
when I reached there ), engine got no damage from short-duration
overheating.

u must be a honda salesman
