Hello, I have a question about my 1997 Honda Civic Ex. I recently did a 35 mile drive on the interstate and when I just about was at my house noticed that my temperature gauge was all the way on high and over the red pointing at the H. http://i39.tinypic.com/2mpbt4y.jpg I turned off my car for the night and tried it the next day when it was cooled off and right when I turned it on it went straight up to the top of the gauge again. I noticed that I think the condenser fan isn't spinning. And I recently took it for a like 3 mile drive and it seemed like it heated up pretty fast but not to hot where it would steam or anything because I didn't want my engine to blow.

Any Ideas on how to fix the overheating problem or the temperature gauge?
