Question about Cars & Trucks
Radiator was leaking and had it replaced. still runs hot. What should I do next?
Check the coolant mixture, you can get a coolant tester for just a couple bucks. Also check all the hoses for leaks or collapsed sections. Check the thermostat (or just replace it). Put it in a pan of water on the stove and turn the burner on, watch the thermostat to see if it opens. If not, it's bad.

SOURCE: 96 honda civic ex runs hot
It is either a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Depending on which motor your civic has, this could be a tricky replacement, either way, you have to remove the head off of the motor, and then take the head to have it pressure checked to see if there is a crack in it. Nine times out of ten though, you can see a crack in the head with your eye, but you have to have the right "eye" to be able to see the crack.

Do the radiator fans turn when engine hot? Try turning them when engine is off and cold; they should spin freely. Could be bad solid state relay that controls them. Try blowing the debris out of the radiator fins from the inside of the engine compartment.

preform a pressurized collant flush , take it to a raidior shop to have it done , they will clean and blow out all blockages that might cause your car to over heat. also check to make sure you dont have air pockets in your anit freeze, if you do you need to bleed the system out after you have it flushed , your car should have a blead valve to let out the axcess air ,if not drive it down the road with the cooaint overflow cap off , not the radiator but you need to flush out the system first , add new anti freeze then bleed out all air pockets, hope this helps
