Engine Cooling problem
2005 Honda Element 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles
Honda Element has been running hot for about a month. Had the thermostat replaced about 3 weeks ago and still the same thing is happening. It doesn't matter if we are stopped, driving, have the heat on, have the air conditioning on: the temperture goes from normal to almost in the red, then for no reason will come back down to normal or somewhere in between. It will do this for the entire trip no matter how short or how long. It will go up and down, sometimes it will stay somewhere for a while but then will move either up or down again. Both fans seem to work but I'm not sure they are coming on at the correct time. Also when the car gets to hot the air conditioning will not cool properly but as the temperture comes back down, it will cool correctly.
Any advice? Thanks in advance.
