Question about 1996 Honda Civic
Replaced water pump, thermostat, fan repaired, no leaks,radiator cap replaced? What else can this be?
Try running the engine without the radiator cap. If the water is bubbling it may be the cylinder gasket if not,
check the temp needle if it moves fast when you turn on/off your headlights and aircon. if it does, you should put a grounding wire (neg) from the body to the engine. This solved my same problem.

It is either a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Depending on which motor your civic has, this could be a tricky replacement, either way, you have to remove the head off of the motor, and then take the head to have it pressure checked to see if there is a crack in it. Nine times out of ten though, you can see a crack in the head with your eye, but you have to have the right "eye" to be able to see the crack.
