2001 honda crv temperature gauge fluctuates

When my Honda warms up, the temperature gauge will go up and I'll have warm (but not warm enough) air blowing for a while. The the temp. gauge will drop all the way down and no warm air blowing. We just replaced the thermostat and it still isn't working right.

Check and make sure your water level is all the way up some times it takes a day or two to work all the air out. if its full than ur water pump may be going bad or the electric temp control for the heater may be bad

Know problem to check out.
-Check your coolant level, low coolant can cause that.
-A bad thermostat could cause that
-Bad headgasket could cause that too, but you have to use a headgasket test kit.

it hard to say what it is without doing any test on it.
good luck

How would I know if my thermostat is broken

If you have a temperature gauge on your dash you can read the engine coolant temperature. After overnight the gauge should be low and during about a 15 minute warm up cycle should achieve about mid range on the dash gauge. It should stabilize at this point with minimal fluctuation through out normal driving.

If you do not have a temperature gauge use an OBDII scan tool where you can read out the engine temperature as you would read the gauge.

A passenger can observe the live readout on the scanner that are equipped with such features while you operate the car.

Hope this helps.?

I recently changed the thermostat because it was overheating. It worked fine for a few weeks, now the temperature is fluctuating all over the place. What's strange is the engine will be hot and...

I'd start by checking the head gasket. Engine misfiring when first started in the morning or extra dirty coolant might be an indication too.

Cuando voy hacia arriba y la temperatura ambiente esta alta el carro comienza a perder potencia hasta que se apaga y la temperatura del motor no sube es transmicion automatica honda crv 1998

No hable Espanol.
But it sounds like a temperature problem.
Make sure there is enough coolant, (aqua).
The belts are tight.
The fan goes on.
The thermostat can be checked by feeling both radiator hoses.
They should both start cold.
One should slowly get warm as engine runs, but other stay cold.
When engine reaches full temperature, then the cold one instantly gets hot as thermostat opens.

My honda crv 1999 temperature gets whn i run

This could be caused by a bad or sticking thermostat. this would not allow for the engine collant to circulate through the engine to cool it down. you could even be low or out of engine coolant. have you checked your coolant level?

P0128 thermostat range performance is the diagnosis when diagonstic check is done. The check eng. light goes off when battery is disconnected but comes on again after a few days. Pls. advise solution....

P0128 indicates that the car doesn't "think" it is warming up quickly enough. So either it really isn't getting warm enough, or the sensor indicating the temperature is bad. If it isn't getting warm enough the causes include a thermostat stuck open, low coolant, and a cooling fan that is running when it shouldn't be.

Keep in mind that many cars have two coolant temp sensors. One for the computer, and one for the temp gauge. Make sure you are working with the correct one.

Fluctuating engine temp a/c sends out cold air intermittently

Here's the thing. The ECU will shut down AC if the engine temperature is too hot. If the coolant temperature sensor is malfunctioning (lying to the ECU) telling it that the temperature is hotter than it actually is, the computer will turn the AC OFF.
