2001 Honda civic overheating, losing coolant, damp passenger floorboard

Damp passenger floor sounds like a heater core. What a pain in the a__. Most probably the dash has to come out to replace. That is the only thing I know of that circulates engine coolant into the passenger compartment.
If you confirm this and want to fix it on the cheap, you can put a crossover hose in the engine compartment and bypass the heater core entirely. This is a $5 fix that works perfectly, mechanically speaking. Unfortunately, you will have no heat. Of course, you may decide that is a better option once you hear a quote on getting the heater core replaced.
Oh yeah, get a new mechanic.

Overheat and no start

get a compression test done at a mechanic to check if you have a warped or cracked head. You may have a blown head gasket also ?

I have a 2002 mozda protege and just had the cylinder head fixed and nwo the oil is mixing with the coolant in the radiator..... now whats wrong????

the repair is either done incorrectly, or you have a cracked head or damaged engine block from an overheating event-You should be able to determine where the issue is by pressurizing the cooling system with a pump, checking for leakage in the head or cylinders

Engine is overheating ,radiator is bubbling, and white smoke from my rear head. blown gasket? or cracked head. and what is the best stuff to use to fix blown gaskets

Blown head gaskets for sure, no way of knowing if heads are cracked without taking it apart, there no quick fix for this, only fix is to take it apart and repair as needed.

Maybe a blown head gasket,cracked head or a cracked block.... A mechanic can probably tell by doing a compression test

I have a 2002 MAZDA Protege 5 with a 2.0L Engine (Twin Cam) took to the mechanic to replace the timing belt, after the replacent the engine performace went down and i can hear the engine got a little bit...

probbaly the timing belt is misaligned by a tooth or so. The mechanic who did it should be resonsable for fixing it. you can't reallly see it's misaligned until you take it apart. there are marks in the cams that should line up with eachother at the same time a notch on the crank gear is facing up. take it back before engine damage occurs due to the incorrect cam timing.
