Question about 2000 Honda Civic
If there is no water leakage, there are only two possible problems: First, you may have a bad thermostat which is not opening, making the engine overheat because no water is flowing through the radiator. Second, you have water getting out the exhaust, either from a bad head gasket or a cracked head or block. If you seem to have white smoke in the exhaust, this is your culprit, and it is an expensive repair.
When the engine is cold, fill it up, and then start it and let it idle for about 10 minutes. Feel the radiator or the upper hose, it should start getting warm. If not, you need to replace the thermostat. This should be a fairly easy and inexpensive repair. Also look for water anywhere under the car, you may have a leak somewhere that you have not noticed.
Otherwise, you are into major money to repair a bad head gasket or head/block.
