Fan not working and car overheating easily

Have a 1997 honda civic dx that was in an accident and I fixed the visible problem of the radiator and then cooling fan was not working so I replaced it as well. not a car pro so I don't know what to try next. I heard someone mention the temp sensor but not familiar with where that is.Also, someone mentioned bleeding the coolant but, like I said, brand new radiator. Or did I do something wrong when I installed it ?? I don't think it's the thermostat but, then again, not a pro !!! HELP

Check your plastic surge tank under the hood to make sure radiator is full. Also, your radiator fan is thermostatically controlled and is a weak point. Check to see if the fan is running when you are overheating. If not that is the problem.

Overheating when it is idling

check cooling fans, they should be on. sideways engines need lots of air flow forced over the radiator since ther is no mechanical fan moving the air, the engine overheats while sitting still if electric fans are not working.

Overheating from leak not visible

Hook up a cooling system pressure tester. If you have a pin point leak, the pressure from the tester will shoot coolant out of the leaking area.
