I have a 98' Honda Civic EX, 1.5 engine, 173k miles. I replaced thermostat, hoses, radiator & distributor caps, & new radiator. Still overheating, bubbling out of reservoir & smoking. HELP!

Do you
have the same problem?

Make sure your relays and fuses feeding power to the fan(s) are in good working order. Swap out questionable relays for known good ones. Replace temp switch/sensor with a known good one. Ensure water pump is in good working condition.

Pressure test the Cap- Fan coming On or what?

Check the oil dipstick-is it milkshake looking or oil in the coolant. Lets not think! Headgasket yet!
