Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 97 honda accord. I replaced the
radiator and all radiator hoses and clamps
as well as the thermostat and did a system
flush on it. Before I go takin apart the water
pump what else could be causing my car to
over heat. Also my heater is only blowing
cold air out don't know if that has anything
to do with it.

Your heater water valve may be stuck closed and there also might be air in the system. Did you burp or bleed system after doing your work? Good Luck!
