You're the same guy I just posted to in the Honda group. I think I gave
you some good advice on your *Prelude*, have you tried any of it?

Your entire cooling system has almost 200k miles on it. Quit
(Cross)posting and start turning wrenches.

I replaced the radiator, hoses and thermostat at 100k. The car heats up
quicker in the winter and the gauge never goes above 40% no matter what
the ambient temp is.

A great repair!
