It's overheating. check thermostat and water pump, also radiator coolant levels. once you get it running at normal temp again take it to the shop and have them do a chemical test to see if the head gasket was damaged or the block was warped or cracked as this usually happens when your car overheats.

The temp gauge stuck on hot, this sounds like a bad temperature sensor or a bad wire going to sensor, The only other thing could be the gauge.
This is a 2000 Honda civic. the first thing i would look at would be the sensor, follow radiator hoses to engine block. At the engine you will see where the hoses go onto engine. the hoses will go to housings.There is where you will locate the coolant temp sensor. make sure the connection is good.
The next test is to see if the gauge is bad. try first jumping the connections with a small piece of wire and key on, watch gauge for movement, then try one connection terminal at a time.connect to ground and see if it moves. then try the other connector and ground. if the gauge does not move then gauge is bad.
I think the cluster is bad. if the gauge does not go down to cold when the ignition is turned off then the cluster is bad. even with a bad sensor or shorted wire the gauge should go down to cold when the key is turned off.
Good day. hope this is helpful.

Pull off the negative battery cable and unplug the sensor. See if the gauge needle returns to normal. Try tapping on the cluster to unstick the needle. No luck? Replace the temperature gauge.
