SOURCE: 1995 honda civic, while driving engine gets hot & cold?

I used to have this problem too on my 95 Honda Civic EX. It would get hot then it would cool down when I stopped. I replaced the thermostat and it took care of the problem. I am not a mechanic but it was real easy to change out. I bought it at Auto Zone and they even gave instructions on how to replace it. Also don't forget to buy the new seal for it. Hope this helps.

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

Alternator. Have it tested with a voltmeter while on the car and running. Or take it off and have it tested. The current to run the car and the accessories is from the alternator when the engine is running. The battery light coming on alerts you that the alternator is not doing its job.

Temperature guage is fluctuating between zero and half way

First make sure your cooling system is full; a low system will casue this.

If coolant is full, have your temperature sending unit checked, if thats not it its actually the gauge bad

Either way, get it repaired...heat in the enginer is the #1 killer of honda engines and their head gaskets/heads...and you want to be able to monitor the temp. closely
