    Really shoots up quick when A/C is on and car not moving. Both fans do
    operate. If I swtich to heat...the temp gauge will start to drop
    slowly (car not moving). Thermostat ? Car has 79,000 miles.

    1. check the coolant level inside the radiator - looking at the
    expansion bottle is insufficient.
    2. check for bubbling in the coolant bottle with the motor running.
    3. if it was full and there was no bubbling, replace the thermostat and
    gasket with new honda oem components.
    4. report back.

  5. Just to be sure, is the new thermostat OEM? That is very important.

    No I was going to use OEM honda but the friend picked up (Mexican
    made) part

  7. Well get that Mexican made part out of there because problems can and will
    arise with aftermarket thermostats. Bite the bullet and get an OEM part.

    I find OEM thermostats costs not much more but much better built than
    any aftermarket ones I've ever seen.
