Could be a problem with ect--wiring circuit--instrument cluster. I'd have to double check your temp gage by using an infra-red temp gun on your engine.
I can't say replacing the ect will help anything? The location is circle with a c in the picture, note the vin.

Found a little coolant on dip stick car not

Head gasket is usually the number ONE culprit. Hard to say without doing a diagnostic. Are you sure it is coolant and NOT condensation? Is it there when you check the oil HOT and COLD? How much coolant are you losing?

Same problem with the hot air 95 accord

You got to the station and say "hot air recharge please". They will let you know if that's something to try. They say most of the time the recharge won't last long enough because of leaks in the system, always a big problem.

Heater is blowing only cold air. both hoses for heater core are warm. what you think, main flap is stuck or is something else??

Hello there..Its two things..If your saying that the heater hoses are hot into the car,,either the blend dorr they call it thats what changes from cold to hot,the flap as you say,or the heater controller that controls it is bad..The dial on the dash that says cold to hot..Shut car down and listen for the flap to open and clse when you change it to hot to cold..If you hear it moving doesnt neccisarily mean that its working it could be broke from the flap and just spinning around or the flap its self is broke,or the heater controls are bad,,Hope this helps you and have a great day

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
