SOURCE: Intermitant temperature

Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.

It has a leak. Fill up the radiator and the coolant tank. Then restart it and check for leaks.

SOURCE: 02 grand prix temp rises over 210 then drops back down. heater

dear friend-there is a couple of things you can do to find the problem,when the engine is cold remove the radiator cap start the engine then look inside to see if the water is circulating,all so look for bubbles in the water,if there is bubbles,you might have a blown head gasket,if there is circulation the water pump is ok,then get the engine up to working temp,then feel both the top and bottom radiator they should be the same temp,if not then the termostat is at fault

If the fans are electric, then replace the fan control module.
If the fan is belt driven, replace the fan clutch.

There is a chance that the thermostat is failing, but if the temperature fluctyation occurs during driving, as opposed to stopped and idling, then it's probably the fans.

if the truck its self is overheating 9 times out of 10 it it the theromastate unless the heater hose to the heater core is stoped to find the theromstate follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the top of the engine and its right there at the end of the hose under the thermostat housing.

I just replaced my thermostat and the heater is still blowing cold air and the temp gage is still rising as if the car is over heating. Can I still drive the car till I can get it fixed?

Only other problem that I can think of is you need a new water pump. When your vehicle is cold take off coolant cover and start vehicle you should see it flow if not your pump is shot or at least that has been my experience. You can drive it but heat needs to be on full blast even though you don't have any and you need to shut it off if it gets to hot zone otherwise your going to have a steaming bubbling mess. I don't recommend driving it very long like this because if its your pump its not pumping through the engine and can damage internal parts when too hot.

You could have multiple issues.
It's possible the coolant temp sensor is bad. Resulting in the overheating/car turning off. Cheap part, relativly simple installation. Just do it.
No air comming from the vents could be a bad blower motor resistor.
Accords also had an issue with the ignition tumblers failing resulting in the car shutting off then restarting immediatley. Check for dealer warranty if temp sensor doesn't fix it.

With what you describe the problem to be I would have the radiator flow checked. Sounds like it may be clogged if not the pump is probably bad. The head gasket should be o-kay due to no loss of fluid or smoke out the tailpipe. Do theses checks and you should find your problem.
