Then you need to suspect that you have a wiring issue to the transmission or a defective Transmission control module (TCM) To do this testing requires a tool called a transmission control system breakout box, that is a dealer level tool. Whether you choose to go to the dealer is your choice, I just wanted to let you know the options you have.
if the thermostat is faulty it will show up as two things
the car will overheat within 5 minutes of start up (10 minutes max) as it will be stuck closed and prevent coolant circulation
and second it will be stuck open which will be seen as taking a long time to reach normal operating temp which will be a long time if ever in cold weather and very low ambient temperatures
you call it as a thermostat sensor where it is a coolant temperature sensor which is a different unit
the sensor in this case reads the engine coolant temp and reports to the ECM so that correct air /fuel ratio can be maintained under all conditions
It also reports that the coolant temperature is too high and so the ECM turns on the fan/s to cool the radiator
They cost from around $20.00 to $80.00 ud depending on make of car , generic or genuine
Hi Mr. Rauscher.
As I understand if correct,and your vehicle is Manual Gearbox,most probably you might have slipping Clutch,if it is Automatic Gearbox again you might having slipping hydraulic clutches. Ask for a test drive from your mechanic
OK, I assume that the autobox is stuck in first and you have two possible problems. Firstly, the shift value in the shift value block is stuck thus continually selecting first gear, or the speed sensor within the auto box is seized. Both these problems is as a result of not having the gearbox oil changed as per the recommended service intervals. Firstly, identify the colour of oil on the auto tarns dip-stick - if it's black, you need to change the oil in the autobox. After you have done this, drive the car in first for a few miles to circulate the new oil and after the vehicle is at normal operating temperture, go as fast as you can in first gear. What this is doing is maximising the load on the speed sensor in the gearbox and by increasing the speed it might just unseaze and change into the other gears. The other thing to do is a stall test, but I suggest that you have a Honda Dealer do this. Best regards, Scottech

The other day the temperature gauge went from normal temp to Max HOT.
The radiator is still cool enough to touch, it is not boiling over, and
there is still coolant in the resivour. The gauge would go back down to
normal in a few minutes, but now it immediately climbs to Max Hot
within 1-2 minutes of turning the car on.
