Question about 1997 Honda Civic
My honda civic rmp gauge revs up past the red line when im not even going fast, yet the motor sounds fine, what does that mean?
If its doing it when your accelerating, you have a transmission slip, if not you probably have a bad shift solenoid and its not switching gears

SOURCE: RPM is not stable.
adjust the idling of the engine that you can find in the back of the engine a little higher than the idling when your ac is on. same problem I encounter before with my Honda civic sedan '94.

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.

Yes it looks like it. Provided you installed the thermostat in the correct direction, Here's the test, remove the radiator cap, start the car and wait for the engine to warm up, When you can see the temp begin to rise on the gauge the thermostat will open. While reving the engine look for turbulance in the coolant/antifreeze in the radiator opening.
If none is observed then replace the water pump.
