'95 civic and engine over heating issues..?

So today notice the car is running hot as I am getting home, smell antifreeze and in the driveway notice smoke but that was from the antifreeze pouring out of the front of the car and hitting the hot
engine. There was antifreeze pouring out of the front of the car, any ideas? Broken hose? Water pump? what do you think?

Sounds like a hose - the water pump is on the side. When it cools, feel all the hoses for hardness, softness, bulges and holes. They usually fail near an end.

Split hose, most likely. Could also be a cracked rad tank. Did you raise the hood and check?
