I really appreciate your help with this issue. I drove my Prelude to bring up engine temp. Checked for leaks as you suggested and observed fan operations. With the engine showing normal temp, I shut it down and within 30 seconds or so the cooling fan came on. I turned the key to the on position, without starting the engine and the fan went off. So, I started the engine and the fan remained off. I then turned on the A/C and it's fan started, turned the A/C off and it's fan stopped. While the hood was up, engine running I again checked for leaks, none to be found and the over-flow tank had coolant up to the full mark. I proceeded to bled air from the system, had to use a socket to crack the bledder, using an open end was not gonna work, cause that hammer-knocker was HOT! Anyway, upon cracking the bledder, I couldn't tell if air escaped, but I did see coolant, plus to my surprise the cooling fan came on. I checked the temp guage and it read normal. Not sure if this was just a fluke, I restarted the engine and let'r run and sure enough after a while the cooling fan fired up and the temp guage still read normal. I'll give'r the highway test and let you know the results. Thanks and we'll talk with you later.
