I have an '89 Honda Accord, Manual transmission, around 190K. Recently replaced the Radiator, thermostat, upper radiator hose. Since then (although I may not have noticed it before) I have had a problem with the engine temps spiking up to the top, and the indoor heater only blows cold. Then the heat comes on inside and the engine temp drops. I have checked the radiator hose while the engine temp gauge is up, and it seems to be heating normally, so it doesn't seem like the thermostat, but I could be wrong. The fluid level seems fine.
