    I would suspect a leaking head gasket, which is very common on this year Honda Civic.

    WOW, just took it to a repair shop and you were right, I was hoping for a waterpump. Thanks for your reply

    had the same problem with my 93 civic, radiator looks bad, thought that's the problem. but after changing the radiator and thermostat the car still runs hot, decided to change the head gasket, after changing it, the car runs normal, it was a blown head gasket... hope it helps :)
