Question 92 Honda Idling Hot

Hi! My 92 Honda Accord is idling hot at the H line. The temp gauge shoots up to H when I'm stopped at a light or cruisin slow. As soon as I step on the accelerator and am driving at regular speed, the temp gauge drops right back down to the middle where it should be within like 4 seconds. Could this just be a problem with the wiring or could it be something worse? I don't know ANYTHING about cars, but I have an AEM cold air intake. I dunno if that makes a difference but I thought I'd mention it in case it matters at all. Thanks! Oh, and the radiator fluid tank thing is totally topped off. There's coolant in there but my friend put water in it too awhile ago cause we didn't have any more coolant to top it off at the time. Could this be the problem?

Default Re: 92 Honda Idling Hot

sounds like the tempature sensor is going out, which could be the fix, worst case senario is your water pump is going out
