What are the possibilities for why a '97 Acura Integra would run hot?

Many things can cause this: the thermostat is not opening the fan is not working blown head gasket or craket block or head if the motor seem to run fine then it probably not the last 2. also follow the upper radatior hose to the motor at this point there should be a houseing with a little nipple or what looks like a grease fitting this is an air bleeder when you get air in the system it is not getting full of water. loosen this fitting while the motor is cool and fill radaitor until only water comes out of it then retighten the fitting and run the car to see if it still gets hot.
