I have a 95 Honda Prelude, 151K miles with a four cylinder engine. After running at normal speeds and stopping at intersections the temp gauage starts to rise. Once moving again, air flow cools the engine and temp gauge goes back normal. Upon stopping the engine and after maybe 30 seconds the cooling fans come on and blow for most of five minutes. Shouldn't the fan come on to prevent the temp gauage from raising? Where would I find the sensors that control the fans operation? I had a shop check the problem and they said everything checked OK, but when your sitting at a red light and the temp gauage starts clicking towards HOT! Something ain't right. Coolant is topped and fresh. Radiator and hoses replaced about a year ago. Changed thermostat and radiator cap to see if that would help. Didn't happen. Whatcha think?
have the same problem?
