Honda civic ex

I'm having issues, and am at a deadlock. My car started overheating on about ten hours into a fifteen hour trip. I stopped, changed the thermostat (because the heat was blowing cold, thought it was stuck shut.) Let the car cool down, and finished the trip with no problems. Same thing happened on the way back home. While running a head gasket sealant, I noticed that my radiator fan wasn't working. I changed the fan switch, still wasn't working, switched the two fan relays, didn't fix the problem, changed the coolant temp sensor, Nada. I also flushed the coolant, hard wired the fan, and some other crazy things. This fan will only come on when the AC is on, and I'm at my wit's end. What am I overlooking? I'm ready to just wire a switch to the dash!

It was after the battery was replaced. It was working fine before that

engine light came,went to the garage ,was told it may be the emission controls

I have recently had the motor mounts all replaced due to rattling but now I have another problem. When I put my foot on the gas & then when I take it off the gas, there is this weird clunking noise. It's sounds mainly on the passenger side. It also seems connected to the fact that when I hit a small bump, the driver side has no effect but the passenger side seems to get hit harder by it.

When I start the engine it starts rough and when I'm driving in any gear(cvt) transmission the entire car begins to vibrate really badly, I changed the spark plugs, cleaned the mass airflow intake sensor and the throttle body, oil used is 0w-20 for now with 64k on it. I noticed when I go down a hill a put it in neutral it smooths out completely. I will admit I was overdue for an oil change by 10000 miles but even before getting it changed no vibrations until aftewards. I also recently changed the tranny fluid as well, I can't figure this out for the life of me. I know there are many causes to this but can you possibly narrow it down ? Any help is appreciated, thanks

I recently damaged my car and want to know how much it would be all together with the installation.

I had the fuel pump assembly replaced couple of months ago, New Ignition coils, New spark plugs and new Air filter.

We recently purchased our Honda and it has a couple mysteries. We test drove the car and at that time the speedometer desided to work and we were pleased to see that it only had a 144k on it....but then it quit, then re started again so that is the first issue. The second thing is the temp gauge. It never has worked but the gas gauge directly across from it works fine. I did take the cluster out and apart to look for anything obvious but things looked fine. We would love some experience on these issues if possible?
