After reading Jim Yanik's post... I stand by my reply--so long as the temp
gauge _never_ climbs above about the 40% mark.
If the gauge DOES move above the 40% mark, more investigation is needed,
starting with an infrared thermometer reading of the upper rad hose inlet
out of the head.
And if an aftermarket thermostat is present in this engine, GET RID OF IT
IMMEDIATELY in favor of OEM (as per Yanik). That alone solves many Honda
cooling system problems.
