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

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.

Fan clutch? Get a pressure check, change the sensor and flush the system.
