    Overheated and found water pump was leaking. Didn't let it run long enough to do any engine damage I don't think. Changed it along with thermostat. Now it overheats when going about 3/4 mile and no heat from heater. Odd, since this was the symptoms that led to finding the water pump pouring water in the first place. No leaks now and radiator is full and no bubbles. At a loss.....

Possible head gasket. Need to remove cap when cold and start. While it is heating up watch fluid in radiator and see if there are bubbles, foaming or it is just shooting out the water. If so it is probobly one of the head gaskets. This is worst case of reasons. others could be low fluid, fans not working or just an air buble in system. But being that you said it happened in such a short drive, I would suspect head gasket. EJ25 motors are very good motors and will run surprisingly well even with a small head gasket leak. Good luck.

Why does my 93 Honda Accord run fine and then dies going down the road and will start again and die again?


There is a black fuel relay way up under the top left driver side dash that breaks its main wire solder connections on the circuit board under over-heat conditions. Resolder that relay. Starting fluid will show that you have lost fuel delivery under no start conditions. You can use the breather hose from the valve cover for this test.

Filling it up with 92 octane will not help you so save your money to get other cool **** . If you want to put higher grade gas to the 89 ,but 87 will do the trick. Have you checked your pcv valve and hoses you might have a vaccum leak.
