Looks like its gone bad, tstat was changed 2 weeks ago and temp climbed again. and I'm not getting heat unless I'm driving over 40 mph or more. Pump was changed less than 2 yrs ago (36k)and its a Gates so?? Whats the best brand?
No visible leaks and mech checked it out.
Thanks

Check the radiator core for cold areas.

I've had great luck with with GMB waterpumps in 528e s. If they make a pump for your Civic, it may be OK. It is not unheard of for a press fit impeller to work itself loose.

OEM one would be safest, been using it in our 7th Gen Civic for over 4 years and no problems so far.

I haven't spoken to him in a while but I am thinking probably a bad radiator, Donnie will figure it out, he's a good mechanic. The cold lower hose and hot upper is a good indicator, if the radiator is clear the lower will be cooler than the upper but not cold.
On some cars this is reversed as the thermostat is on the lower hose side. I did a Dodge not too long ago with these symptoms and sure enough the middle of the core was blocked tighter than a bulls arse in a hurricane.

Did the new mechanic check out the cam/crank timing making sure everything lines up? Is the timing belt in good shape?

Stick to OEM or Aisin on Hondas - Aisin does source the OEM Yamada pump for Honda applications.
