My 1999 Honda Accord EX - The temperature hand will move up then fall down as I'm riding. This happens when I orgininally start it in the morning and will do it until it's been about 7 miles down the road. I'm not sure if something is wrong. It's never done this before.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Rhonda, You may need to replace your thermostat, this can form deposits over time and cause it to not open and close properly. This is a fairly cheap replacement cost, if your issue persists you have a lead towards a possible temperature sending unit failure.
