Your headgasket is blown. FYI, the Honda Passport isn't a Honda. It's an Isuzu Rodeo rebadged. During the mid 90's, Honda wanted to break into the SUV market but didn't have the resources for a mid sized SUV so they went to Isuzu for a vehicle. this was the first SUV to wear the Honda badge- eventhough it wasn't a Honda.The only thing Honda on your SUV is the badging, stereo and the grill. Honda also used the Isuzu Trooper to create the Acura SLX. Anyway, the problem is your headgasket. Coolant is getting into your oil system.

look for any leaking hoses or busted hoses chances are it not holding any fluid because of that if you find it replace the hose and go from there

You said it overheats and dont hold water anymore in the radiator, First check for leaks, hoses, water pump, if you see leaks coming from the hose, it might only be the problem. If not in the hose, and you see water coming from the water pump, you have to replace it at once. If bothe hoses and water pump are not leaking, for sure, loose of water is in the engine. The water from the radiator are getting the inside of your engine due to a blown cylinder head gasket. Have it replace at once to avoid a bigger problem. After you replace it, be sure that your auxilliary fan are working fine to avoid another overheat.
