Typical issue with the 92'-95' Civic. Thermostat is one possibility, yes. Another is that it overheated due to the thermostat or the fact that they have a very small radiator which tends to corrode and become increasingly less efficient, in time causing it to everheat and eventually cracking lengthwise away from the radiator cap along the (plastic) top of the radiator due to steam pressure on the inside of the rad. Inspect the fins on the radiator to ensure they are not turning green and corroding away, this will make a marked difference in your colling capability.

Your thermostat could be going bad. You can test it with a 'kitchen' test. Drop it in a pan of water, heat the water and check to see if it's operating in the proper temp range. (you need a kitchen thermometer)
Or you can just replace it. They are relatively cheap. I have replaced the thermostat on every honda I have owned.

the info of the problem is to broad, what type of smell is it plastic smell wire smell rubbery gassy? theres to many smells a car can generate while driving down a highway to narrow it down to just clutch plate or brake pads

although yes both can make a smell down the highway its more than likely a grease or liquid burning you should check your engine for leaks mainly around the head and tranny and also check your boots and joints it could even be you picked something up off the road and its now stuck on your pipes burning try it all out

SOURCE: 1995 honda civic, while driving engine gets hot & cold?

I used to have this problem too on my 95 Honda Civic EX. It would get hot then it would cool down when I stopped. I replaced the thermostat and it took care of the problem. I am not a mechanic but it was real easy to change out. I bought it at Auto Zone and they even gave instructions on how to replace it. Also don't forget to buy the new seal for it. Hope this helps.

1993 Honda Civic rapid heating

Sounds like your electric cooling fan(behind the radiator) is not functioning. The thermostat might not be working,making the fan
not come on at all. I once put a toggle switch in my dash,when I had
an old CRX, just to turn on the fan, or it would overheat.
