Temperature IDLE? So let's rephrase that...You've got an Accord. The temperature gauge goes down when you drive at highway speeds in cold weather. Your thermostat is broken. It's in the fitting where the upper radiator hose enters the block, and that fitting is held on by three bolts. Remove the bolts, throw away the old thermostat and gasket, insert new ones of both, torque the three bolts to 9 lb-ft, bleed your cooling system and you're done.
