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.

SOURCE: 1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

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.
Flush good.

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 your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

SOURCE: 1996 Volvo 850 shakes when started and when idling

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.

My 1998 honda civic died when i was driving it. It cranks but dosn't start it also makes a noice at the beginning could it be the fuel pump?

How many miles are on it? Did you have the timing belt changed at 90,000 miles? Is there spark to the spark plugs? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? A broken timing belt will make the car sound alot different than normal when cranking.

2006 Civic Hybrid 85K miles with engine light on

Take it to a autozone and have them pull the codes and tell you what is happening, it is most likely a 02 sensor not functioning properly. But have the codes pulled right away, andthey can tell you what it might be then post the codes here then we can tell you if you should wait or not. better safe than sorry. If you drive it and it brakes and you knew the light was on and di not get it checked right away you could void the warrenty.
