Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
Sounds like a misfire. She needs to get it on a code reader to see if any sensors are showing an error. It may also be spark plugs, leads or possibly coils.
You can also add some Injector Cleaner to your gas for a couple of fill ups.
Also check the engine mountings. They are a block of rubber with a steel bracket on either side of the rubber. They can come apart.

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.
Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.
Stop leak can plug everything.
Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Testimonial: "thank you for the very clear, step by step instructions for diagnose and remedy"
being 1996 I would had replace the vehicle with the used parts saving her 600-700 bucks especially fans and radiator. Is there a reason why she has to replace radiator and the fans, did it ran hot for while, if it did the chances are you can warp the cyclinder head and it can cause poor compression and run rough when it idling, at high speed its hard to tell. can also have clog fuel injectors, run 93 octane and add a can of fuel injector cleaners into the gas tank run it til empty, see if that help. check plugs,cap, rotor and wires.
