2003 Honda Civic 2 door coupe - I start up the car, it warms up fine, maybe a little longer than normal, and as I drive away, the car drives fine, normal operating temp, (just below the half mark). But when I stop and put the car in park for about 5 or 10 minutes, the temperature gauge starts to drop. The fan itself comes on, but the temperature continues to slowly decrease towards the " C" . When I put the car back in gear and start driving again, it will go back to normal operation temperatures. Please, any ideas would help. A smart individual already told me to replace the thermostat, which I am going to do, but just wondering if anyone else can confirm that, or give me any other ideas in case that will not work. Thanks.
Also, I just replaced the temperature sensor because my mechanic told me that was the problem, but no luck!
