Question: overheating and sputtering

Just got a 92 honda civic have replaced heater hose and the upper radiator hose because they both busted in two days. Replaced thermostat, has antifreeze oil all fluids good. Cant figure out why else it would overheat. Also it keeps sputtering and dying when slowing down especially when low on fuel, put some gas in and drove better, but then started overheating again.
