Hi all, I'm new to this site. My temperature gauge goes up for about 30 seconds then goes to normal. My vehicle is a 1998 Honda Torneo SIR-T (2.2L Dohc Vtec). I just recently replaced, brand new, fan motors, ECT sensor ( the one that goes in the engine core/block), and thermostat, all aftermarket parts. I changed the fan switch sensor ( the one that goes in the gooseneck) about two yrs ago. The temperature gauge either shoots up ( to full H) and goes down soon or shoots up and stays up for about 5 mins then goes normal. But there are no visible signs yet I smell coolant everytime I reach my destination. The fans take forever to come on, and when they do, they go off again real soon (in about 10 seconds ). Any suggestions?
