99 Civic- Shut off while driving?? Won't start right back up.
Twice this past month, I was driving along, and went to give the car gas, and nothing. Car shut completely off. When I start it back up, it turns over, starts and dies instantly for about 3 times or so, then starts.
Went to eat yesterday for m parents anniversary. Ate,went outside to leave. I started the car right up...sat for a second then it died. It did the start, cut off thing 3 times. I popped the hood, just pushed in all the plug wires, got in and started right up. Made it home with no problems. Now I dont know if that was a coincidence or not.
My thoughts are, rotor,cap,coil?
Plug wires? Plugs are pretty new.
Ignition switch, or another part of the ignition?
I am having the same exact problem with my 98 LX. It'll die sometimes when driving and i can pop start it while driving...then it'll die again. Then, just like you said, there are times when it'll start but die a second later. I've replaced the spark plugs and wires. Checked the cap and it seems fine. Also, at times when it wont start up for more than a second, if i take out the key, rotate it , put it back in and start it, it'll stay started.
