Default 1990 Accord weird problem

Lately I have a weird thing happening to my Accord.
The sport witness light is flashing and the water/cooling light is on.
I checked the water and it's fine and also there are no signs of
overheating.
When I turn the engine off and restart everything goes back to normal for a
while
and then the same problem occurs again. From time to time the speed gauge
goes off also.

Please advise.

Sport witness? I have not heard of this light.

There is a small button on the automatic shifter for sport mode.

I advise you to visit one of the auto parts stores in your town that
offers free testing. Ask someone in the store to connect a hand held
scanner into the OBD and read the codes for you. If you are sure the codes
are errors, ask the person to clear the code or codes.

If you're referring to autozone, they can't test anything 'import' prior to
1996 (OBDII).
