1997 Honda Accord, 4 cyl. LX, 4 door, automatic, 230K miles. When I start the car, temp gauge on dash goes to 40-50% range almost immediately. Temp continues to rise until it gets to 95% - 100% in red. I have replaced the temperature sending unit and the coolant switch (the bronze plug sensors that screw in around the water neck. I replaced the thermostat about 6 months ago. All fans work. When I get out and check under the hood, the car (hoses, radiator) are not real hot, seem normal. When temp gauge gets in red zone, it affects the temp output of the a/c (it gets much warmer). It will go down slightly if I turn off the A/C, but only about 5%.
have the same problem?
