WHAT'S A GOOD MOTOR
The Honda Civic
engine is a representative engine among Japanese cars and is generally acceptable. Therefore, I don't think you need to modify it too much.

My 1991 honda civic dual point injection the iddle
If your Honda is naturally aspirated/carbureted, then your only problem is the fact that the diaphragm that squirts gas into the venturis is not operating. Maybe just need to replace said diaphragm or maybe just an adjustment to make it squirt sooner is all it may need. This initial gasoline squirt is what keeps the engine from dieing when you stomp the throttle. Understood?
Just dies and water start boiling. Just put in thermostat housing
Hi, I hope I can help you, but need some info.
1.Did you replace the actual thermostat or just the housing ?( your statement says "just put in thermostat housing". If the car has no thermostat, the coolant never has a chance to stay in the radiator long enough to cool down and eventually boil over.
2. If the thermostat was replaced, check to make sure the correct temperature rated thermostat was installed and it was not installed upside down.
3. You mentioned "water started boiling". Was the cooling system filled only with water? Using just water only, and not an actual engine coolant, should never be done, as water will reach a boiling point faster than a coolant and will also corrode the inside metallic parts of the cooling system.
4. Is there any visible signs of leaks in the cooling system when it's running? Any puddles forming under the car? If yes, the leaks need to be addressed before trying to repair anything else in the system. I hope this helps, and please write back, as I will check back for any updates you may have written in on this.
