Question about 1997 Honda Civic
Might be a blockage in the hose coming from the pump to the washer nozzles, or the nozzles themselves. Hose might be kinked as well. I'd try to trace and disconnect the hose at the pump, and at each connection to see if there is fluid running through them when the washer is activated. Certain types of washer fluid will evaporate and leave deposits that could potentially clog the system. Could get a little messy, but washer fluid is harmless unless you get it in your eyes. Maybe start with that, cause I can't see an '02 model vehicle having a bad washer pump. Then again anything's possible, but if you can hear the pump running, that's where I'd start. I hope this helps

SOURCE: oil filter in civic 97
If you go to a reputable motor factor,
you can only be sold the correct filter for the civic.
As there are soo many variables in engine type, it's almost impossible to tell, oil volume, or which type filter.
However, I will say, be sure that you don't mix semi-synthetic oil, and mineral oil.
Oil changes should be undertaken every 30,000 miles, (unless under extra work load, (in which case, slightly more regularly))
Otherwise, 10/40 or 15/40 grade oil, is perfectly fine.
The trick to not overfilling the oil, is simply just to take your time, clean the dip stick and retry, until you have the correct reading.
Please don't forget to rate:)

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