Probably a blown head gasket. If the engine won't urn over now it's either hydrolocked (coolant leaks into the cylinder(s) and since it can't be compressed like air, the piston can't move up and the engine can't turn over). Or it's seized from coolant contaminating the oil, and you driving it. Remove the spark plugs and try turning it over. If you see antifreeze or water spray out the spark plug holes, then keep spinning the engine with the starter (for no more than 30 seconds) to expel the coolant. Then dry the spark plugs with a propane torch or lighter, and reinstal them. Change the oil and it should start and run. Have the head gasket replaced before driving it again. You can buy a good used engine for your car if the old one is seized and the rest of the car is in good enough shape to be worth the money.

My 94 Honda Civic runs hot but only during hot weather. Fan runs it has a new thermostat in it an everything.


Start the vehicle and bring it to operating temperature,then shut it down take the key out and with care use your hand and feel for cold spots on the radiator,your radiator can be plugged,The civic has two type of radiator that calls for your car, I assume you have the correct one installed. under your car is a spoiler is that spoiler installed, the reason I ask when the vehicle is in motion it creates a under draft not only does it create a vacuum it helps in the cooling fan when the spoiler is not on vehicles run hot on freeways and not in the city.Also there is a ground wire that goes from the frame to the valve cover is it installed,belive it or not it creates mysterious overheating so inspect for that ground.
