When this happens with any car you should have your radiator cleaned, replace the water pump and resurface the head, dont forget to replace the thermostat too.

Oil leaking heavy just above oil filter ,passenger side 2002 crv ,not coming from head oil leaking heavy passenger side above oil filter, not coming from head

If it is leaking at the oil filter the previous rubber gasket may have stuck to the block. When the new oil filter was installed then the gasket was doubled and will leak.

98 Honda CRV power/overheating

If you are loosing coolant and cant find any leaks check your oil level. If oil level is have blown a head gasket or cracked a head. Common when an engine over heats badly.

I Have a 2005 Hyundai Elantra Thats losing water, overheating and wont start when its hot. No leaks no white smoke.

If no leaks, I would pressure test the system with a view to replacing the head gasket.

My 98 ford contour keeps overheating i just replaced the radiator and the water pump. And there is no water in the oil. The fans work but it still overheats . What else could be causing it to overheat?

I can't believe anyone would replace the waterpump without also replacing the thermostat. Once overheated, a thermostat is no good anymore. It must be replaced.

But that is not the only possibility. You could have a bad head gasket, without having oil in the water. Only a pressure check can tell. You could also have a collapsing lower hose, as water pump suction causes it to pinch off. You could also have an air bubble from not bleeding it properly when refilling. You could also have a loose waterpump belt. You could have put in the wrong waterpump, as the type for normal V-belts runs the opposite direction of the type for serpentine belts.
There are many more, but that is all I could immediately think of.

I have a 98 Accord that continues to overheat. I

Definate cylinder head gasket or cracked cylinder head. Compresion from the engine cylinders getting into the coolant system and blowing out the water. But what you have done so far is money well spent as something had to cause the overheating to begin with so fixing the cylinder head problem would have been one problem solved but not a complete fix.

98 crv still overheating

I hate to be the one who tells you but,if your radiator cores arent blocked as you said you have your radiator fixxed,its a head gasket,antifreeze is leaking by the head gasket and going into the piston chamber when the piston goes up it pushes the fluid back into the radiator,check your oil distick for a milky white look,antifreeze in the oil,if your car starts to have white smoke its antifreeze getting into the exaust ports either way head gasket
