Hello all you happy people,
I have a 99 2.0 accord SE, F20B6 and recently i started having problems with the water temp gauge.It would go to half after driving for a while and stopping.Ordered the temp sensor ,replaced it and now it`s worse.this morning i started the car and after 35 seconds according to the gauge the engine was already at operating temperature with no reving.Both hoses from the radiator were cold.After a few minutes(2,3 minutes) the needle was well over half,the top hose started to heat up a little bit,bottom hose cold.After another few minutes it was near red,started the AC ,the needle instantly went down 4 lines,started to climb a little bit ... the radiator is new,coolant level is ok and as i mentioned before temperature sensor is new.
And regarding the dash i had a few little problems that i did not take in consideration before :
- sometimes when i start the engine the speedometer acted weird, going from 0 directly to 25 to 40 to 60 kmph ,getting stuck there .i would stop the car and the needle still pointed to 50,60 or whatever speed i had,and from time to time "check vehicle speed senor" would appear on the navi screen(the mechanic checked it,it s good)
- illumination from the mileage and outside temp screen went off a few weeks ago and i thought the led was broken,yesterday went back on by itself.
I spoke with my mechanic and i will take the car on Tuesday for a check up but it`s driving me crazy and i can`t sleep because of this(i`m still thinking at blown head gasket and stuff) and in one week i`m leaving in holiday were a have a 1000 km drive.\
Thank you for reading my little story and pls pls pls give me some good news
