Car stops when brought it to full stop using brake

Asked by Jul 05, 2014 at 06:00 PM about the 1994 Honda Civic DX Hatchback

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

The car runs okay as soon as the car is running. While I make the car slow down and if I
completely stop at the stop light, car stops. The car will only start immediately if I throw 1
gallon of water on the engine. There is some boiling close to the radiator cap. Also melted
wax like stuff close to the radiator cap as well. Any thoughts?
