Question about 1992 Honda Accord
When I stop at a light my 94 honda accord ex gets redline hot as soon as I begin to move again it cools back off what could cause this did I blow my head gasket
Biggest problem with the hondas is they have a bad cooling system, they tend to corrode the fins of the water pump due to the reaction between the full alloy block and the coolant. you should start there then the fan switch and radiator and thermostat.

When you blow a head gasket your exhaust smokes like crazy and you can smell the alcohol in the antifreeze, assuming you don't have a leaking water pump. Is your car doing that? The first thing I would check is to see if the radiator fan is coming ON regularly when the car is stopped. It should be kicking in every 1-2min depending on the temperature outside.
I'm thinking your thermostat is probably OK because the car does not overheat when moving, so it has good water circulation, and enough cooling while the wind is blowing through the radiator. So if the fan operation is OK, and there is enough antifreeze of proper mixture, then there might be a problem with the radiator itself. The radiator's efficiency is down due to build-up and possibly cooling fin detachment - that's what usually happens with age.

Do you smell alot of antifreeze? look to see if your overflow is empty or your radiator is empty
