SOURCE: over heating
with a 1993 you do not want to run it with out the thermostat it will damage the engine but you might want to try getting a low temp thermostat from advance auto parts and try that

SOURCE: still losing coolant
Hi, Sounds like the water pump is not circulating the water, as soon as the engine heats what water is in it, it will boil. Since you are brave enough to open the radiator when it is hot ( Bad Idea ! ) open it when it is cold, start the car and watch to see if the coolant circulates. You may have to wait unit the thermostat opens and if the water pump is bad when the thermostat opens it may spray hot coolant and steam instead of circulating what is in the radiator so don't be in the way. Not the best way to test this but works if you don't have diagnostic tools. Good Luck! By the way, coolant means antifreeze mixture which if it gets too thin lowers the boiling point significantly.

I hate to tell you but most likely your head gasket is blown. But first have your 13 psi cap pressure tested. If the head gasket has blown out in between the cylinder and the water passage , engine compression will enter your coolant and over pressurize the cooling system. This could be caused by a pin hole in the head gasket and that is all. also make sure your head is not warped. The 22re has a cast iron block and aluminum head causing the head to expand at a different rate than the block. causing the gasket to wear and leak. Good luck.

it is the head gasket blown from the cyl to the water jacket ,a radiator specialist can test for combustion gases in the water to confirm this ,but that is what it is . "youdoit"
