    I have the exact same problem with with my 1996 honda accord. And I can hear my fans working, but I fear there is something wrong with the radiator. I've been told I may need to replace it but I'm hoping there is a simpler solution.

Describe your 2002 Astro van temperature gauge Problem. Gauge goes to redline quickly when idling for a few minutes; "Check Gauge" light comes on. When van turned off, OK within 3 minutes or less. Temp...


Check coolant level, and possibly replace thermostat. When a thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant does not circulate thru motor. Gauge stays midrange when driving, because motor is being cooled by air and or the fan. If car seems to operate completely normal, then the gauge is faulty.

95' accord 4cyl quit running suddenly,will not start


Low coolant will make the AC work harder but should not shut the motor off. Start by checking the battery, plugs, plug wires, distributors, fuel filrter, fuel injectors and idle air control valve.

95 Accord, Intermittant Gauges


This sounds like a bad ground but first check the fuse for the instruments located in the fuse box. If that is OK, somone will have to find the ground wire for the instruments and see if it has any voltage with the key on. If it does, the gound connection is bad

Hard start


DTC - 15 Engine coolant temp sensor error (low temp indicated)
This is an Diagnostic Trouble code using the OB1 which simply means the check engine light blinking in series at certain intervals.But my thinking says that if you are having trouble wuth any sensor , the ECU or PCU computer will read all kinds of things in error. Try replacing the TCS temperature control sensor.Only 96 and up have a OB2 Diagnostic system

2004 crvautomatic high idle on cold startup 1600rpm takes 3 to 5


Hondas are famous for this, my accord does it. This is normal UNLESS it still idles high after normal running temp. has occured. Watch your temp. gauge when it reaches normal temp tap the gas a little bit if the idle drops then it is fine

Temperature gauge


Well let's see....You did not say the temp of the heat changed inside your car... if it does NOT ...I say the gauge is messed up....

A thermostat usually sticks open or closed.. if it is broke.

If it is defective the car will start getting hotter under a load going uphill or....when the a/c is running it will not put out cool air while sitting still at a stoplight or heavy traffic..
