You likely have a stuck thermostat.........when they stick open the engine wont reach operating temp and when they stick closed the engine will over heat...........your cheapest and most likely place to start is with replacing the thermostat
hope this helps!

1999 Honda Accord heater not blowing hot air


Sounds like a thermostat or cooling system issue. Change the fluid and the thermostat. It will do your engine good so it's money well spent.

Cooling fan in Honda


On my 1996 Accord (4cylinder), this was caused by a tube inside my radiator overflow tank dropping off into the tank - the radiator would have too little fluid in it, so the fans would run a LONG time after shutting the thing down. The tank is in the front left, a white cap with a black tube running out of the cap to the radiator. Underneath the cap there should be a foot or so of hose - this is what fell off of mine.

Hooked it back up, made sure enough fluid was in the radiator, and no more problem.

The dashboard coolant heat gage will show the high temperature, also.

Temp runs hot when at redlight but goes down when i excell


Electric fan on radiator is goofing off. chk if it comes on at all but watching gauge and listening for fan start uo just above operating trmp. Fan helps cool under 35 mph. Forced air cools over 35 mph.
