    sorry for the misunderstanding, the engine is not running hot car thermostat is ok. It's when the car has been driven for a while or sat in the heat all day at work.

SOURCE: 1990 honda accord rpm gauge out of wack

You probably have a faulty sensor at the transmission.

Go to your local parts store, and they can give you the part and how to install it. It's pretty easy.

SOURCE: 1990 honda accord temp gauge above hot limit.

Hi there,

Firstly - DO NOT run engine, when guage reads hot, as this will cause costly damage to head gasket & alloy engine head.

The fact that guage takes 1min to read HOT, would confirm the guage IS working properly.

So, other components which are likely to cause hot readings (in this order) are:

- lack of coolant (or leakage somewhere): is there sufficient green coolant at the correct level? Top up mixture to correct level. Repair any leaks.

- collapsed radiator hose: when engine is cold, start engine, then quickly watch both upper & lower radiator hoses to see if either begins to flex inwards (collapse). Replace if either hose is collapsed.

- bad/incorrect thermostat rating : when replacing thermostats, you must ensure it is of the SAME temp rating (they all differ).

- Incorrect Temp sensor rating: the ratings of this sensor must be within manufacturer's spec's.

- bad waterpump: the engine relies on the waterpump to distribute the coolant throughout the entire system. If waterpump is faulty, coolant will not flow quick enough, causing overheating.

If you still believe all of the above components are OK, then have your cooling system "pressure tested". This test should be done, before looking further at other electrical components.

Cheers,

"if this has helped you in any way, please rate this solution"

SOURCE: car will not shift into overdrive

As a response to solution #1 these cars do have an overdrive while in D-4, mine was shifting in and out at 70 mph until it finally quit and the rpm is now 3100 at 70 mph insted of 2700. The car still shifts 4 full times just not the fifth-OD. I still can't find out what fixes this problem either.

Why does the fuel gague in my 1988 Honda accord always read full?


check to see if your fuel gauge is working by disconnecting the fuse from the panel, if gauge reads e then ground the fuel gauge if it reads full then the fuel gauge reads fine the its the float sensor in the fuel tank. good luck have fun

My 93 honda accord lx is over heating what do i do?


The first thing is to make sure the coolant is full, check it when the engine is cool, check radiator level, if coolant is full then check for bad thermostat, run engine and as it overheats check both hoses to make sure they are both hot, if one is hot and the other warm then you will need to replace the thermostat.if both hoses are hot then you may have a bad cooling fan or sensor, hope this is helpful.

1990 Honda Accord Temp Gauge goes up to the extremely hot (to the end of the hot) mark on the gauge all of a sudden and then drops back down to the Normal mark after about 15 seconds. I drove the car...


Fan coming on after shutdown is okay, and needed. Check for full coolant, and bleeding of any air in the system. Be sure that the heater is on FULL hot during filling.
Then pressure test the cooling system and fix any leaks. Your issue sure sounds like sticking thermostat or low coolant.

Temp gauge bouncing up an down


That vehicle has two coolant temp sensors on it, both are on the passengers side of the end of the head, where the thermostat housing is. One has a two wire plug, this one tells your fans to come on the other is one single pin, this one is for your temp gauge. This sensor works off resistance, the higher the resistance the higher the gauge in the car goes. This sensor has probably grounded out and pegged your gauge in the car. Replace that sensor and you should be good to good, not too expensive either. Good luck.

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.

Do you I need to replace the thermostat on my 1999 Honda Accord as a preventative measure only?


No only if you have noticed a change in engine running temperature on gauge, colder or hotter than normal.
