1995 Accord 2.2L Vtec. Lots of questions but to start, it

1995 Accord 2.2L Vtec. Lots of questions but to start, it has been butchered and overheats. The guy has a wire from a switch on the lower dash (he installed) to the cooling fans. We replaced the coolant, thermostat and hoses. It still overheats. The fans will turn on manually via that switch. There is no heat in the car. What should we check? bad water pump....bad heater control, valve.... bad heater core..... bad sensor...... What is the most logical order to check? Thx.

Are you there for real time questions? Looks like your are

Hi, are you there for real time questions?JA: No. I'm the Honda Mechanic's Assistant.Customer: Looks like your are there. I have a 2001 Honda Accord 4 cyl. My son was driving the car the other day and over heated and the bottom seems of the radiator broke apart. I replaced the radiator and the thermostat. I waited for the car to warm up and watch for the thermostat to open by looking in the radiator but it never opened. Then the temp went up to hot range and I turned off the car. Also the radiator fans did not come on either. Any help to offer?JA: Have you checked the coolant? Have you noticed any leaking?Customer: Did not like any leaks. Any ideas as to why the water seemed to not be circulating?JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: Just replaced the radiator and the thermostat.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: Nothing else I can thing of at this time.

I have Honda Civic 2005 With 133000 miles. I have coolant spraying out of the overflow tank. I have the car since it has 17 miles and it has never overheated. Replaced thermostat about 4 months ago. Replaced radiator cap two weeks ago (from dealer). Did compression test with warm engine per service manual.results:1: 1852: 1803: 1854: 190Cranking engine 4 times.. I know these number are little too high but everything is working fine for now.I have no white smoke coming out of exhaust and no coolant in oil.This started happening prior replacing thermostat and radiator cap. I thought that was the issue but it is not.
