Question about 2001 Honda Civic
It sounds to me like there is an air lock in you're cooling system, and you should never use water in a cooling system unless it is an emergency. Start by draining all the water and replacing it with pre mixed antifreeze, you can use universal prestone anti freeze. Than when the system is topped up with the new anti freeze, approximately two 5 liter jugs run youre vehicle with the rad cap off, top up fluid in the rad, and wait for bubbles and for the fluid level to drop. Fill as needed, it may take awhile for the system to become full, when the bubbles stop wait approximately 5 minutes and if there are no more bubbles or fluid level decrease. you should be good to go.

I have what you looking for ......
most of the cars made for Europe are equipped with a( thermostat ) but don`t confuse it with air conditioner thermostat or thing is working like valve that stops water circulating in cold starts so the water will only circulate around the engine block not through the radiator and of coarse it helps heat up your car`s engine faster but the problem comes when that valve got old (by the way most of those valves working as a wax capsule when the water heats to some amount the wax molten so it opens the way for water to circulate through the radiator ) what happens is simply the wax looses some of its function and molten in higher temp . so it block the water again until it heats up to molt the wax
my advice :
get off that part and just don`t replace it if you found it pricey for you your car still working but will needs more time to warm up
i hope i was useful for u sir .
