Default 02 civic overheating ?

When i drive my car to work it starts to overheat when i am stoped or if i am driveing slowly. When i got to wwork i open the hood and it look like there was coolent leking out of the reserve i took the the cap off the reserve and it was over flowing. I drained the reserve and filled up the radiator and put up to the min mark on the reserve. I drove home and again it started to over heat. And the same thing when i looked under the hood the reserve was over flowing. What could be wrong

Hopefully not a blown headgasket allowing hot gases from cylinders into the coolant.

If Honda's not too far, have it towed there for diagnosis.

It's an expensive fix, $1,000+-.

But it may be something much more economical.
