You can check the coolant temp. sensor, it's usually located near the thermostat housing, somewhere near the upper radiator hose. It could be a bad gauge, or a broken wire. Find the sensor on the engine, and follow the wire as far as you can to make sure it's good.

I didn't know they still made honda Del Sol's in 1995. Oh well I guess I learn something new everyday. I thought they changed the name to CIVIC. I thought the last Del Sol was in 1989? ANyways, good luck with that.

You need check your engine temp sensor or ECT. It's located on the head near the heater hose. It's a one-pin connecter, under the distributor. Make sure it's plugged in. If it is plugged in, it needs to be replaced. That's gonna require you draining your coolant to do it, but it's fairly easy to do, however requires patience since you'll have to remove the distributor & then reset your timing when you put it back on. Now if that doesn't do the trick, then the next best bet could be that your temp gauge in your guage cluster is busted. You can usually find new clusters on ebay or if you're lucky, your local junk yard Also, be sure to check all your fuses. That sometimes can cause an issue, too.Good luck!
