Honda Civic 98 EX

Took out thermostat two weeks ago.

Still overheating on highway.

When slowing down the temp starts to fall, but still overheating past halfway. When pressed on the gas the car heats up even more.

I checked the coolant and refilled as needed a week ago.

Still over heating, while coolant is full.

HELP PLEASE.

Check the radiator if its clogged-up, water pump functioning if both ok -try bleeding the cooling system don't work get it block and pressure tested to rule out a blown headgasket cracked head and block and an intake leak
