Is it normal for a Honda Accord 1989 to have the bonnet so hot just after a short drive-30min- even when the gauge indicates that all you well?

If there is no insulation under the hood it will get hot even on a 30 minute drive. The engine operates at around 210 degrees fahrenheit. The engine sits very close to the hood so lots of heat is transferred. If the engine is running within the normal range and you know the gauge is good then all is well.

This is normal for your car, The computer is working extra hard when the engine is cold Because it is not designed to operate at that temp, It is designed to warm up the engine and emissions system as quick as possible without damaging the engine, That is why MOST vehicles will run at A higher rate when COLD (BELOW NORMAL OPERATING TEMP). As for the up and down engine speeds, I can't answer that but it is normal, I have owned 3 of the CIVICs in that same engine family. Good luck, Jamison.
