My condenser fan on my 2006 Honda Accord quit coming on. I put a little water in the radiator. It started to spin again. But, it will still overheat, when The car switches gears. As I keep driving, it cools off. My code reader says it's a coolant temp sensor. On the highway, it stays cool, so I don't think it's the thermostat. Any advice would be appreciated.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Jeremy, If your code reader is stating a coolant temp sensor, then it is not the thermostat those are two separate items.

Gail Dunn, Owner at Women's Automotive Connection Jeremy Once you begin driving and the coolant is continually flowing, I doubt that it would heat up. However, if the code reader says there is a problem with the temp sensor, then you should have that looked at, or at least diagnosed at a reputable shop. Codes don't show for no reason.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Fan clutch? Get a pressure check, change the sensor and flush the system.
