Overhearing issue?

I'll first start off by saying thanks for any input on this. And by introducing myself. I'm hector from so cal and have had this car a lil over a year and I always loved the 4th since my brother had it. Well now to the technical part....


So Im having some weird problem with my car if I'm driving and stop for like 5 minutes the gauge will go up one bar. I turn the car off and turn to switch to the "on" position and everything is back to normal. I've bled the cooling system and it only started doing it once I swapped it the am h23a. The first swap did it and than I sold the engine when I was unemployed and threw another one and it still does the exact same thing? Any thoughts? Im not too savy when it comes to working on cars but I like to learn.

Re: Overhearing issue?

If it only goes up 1 bar, no need to be alarmed hector.
The car running keeps coolant flowing through a system that keeps it regulated. When that system needs assistance your fan(s) kick on.

When you turn the car off that system is not heating the coolant with internal combustion Your temp sensor notices the change.

If it stays around the halfway mark all is well.

Did you per chance change your thermostat to a 'higher temp' thermostat? One that opens at a hotter temperature. Also the Honda oem kind tend to be more accurate opening and closing.

It could be your original motor just flowed better.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

By one bar I mean one bar past the halfway mar, sometimes two bars. Once I turn the car off and on right away, all is normal at the halfway point. Also, I didn't change the thermostat it's the same one I've ran before the swap was done

Re: Overhearing issue?

Do your fans kick on when it goes past halfway?
