I thought I would turn to the boards here at Hondatech.com. I noticed your site at Bigboards.com, you have a huge member base, and I am hoping you can help me out with a problem.
My wife has a 99 Civic EL, she's had it since new. It has 203,00 km on it, so it should have plenty of life still in it.
Well a week or so ago she tells me that the Civic is "stalling", losing all power when she uses here turn signal
Ok I'm sure your thinking the same thing I was. Well since then it has happen 3 more times (once while cruising on the highway, no brakes, no turn signal, nothing) No "Check Engine" light.
So we take it to our mechanic, who keeps it for a few days to drive around, and hopefully the power will cut out on him also. No such luck, of course. Well the mechanic replaces the distributor. We take it home, and the next day it cuts out on my wife again when she is out shopping. She has to coast in neutral to the side of the road, and restart the car. It takes her 3 attempts.
So I take the Civic out for a good ride for an hour, nothing.
Does anybody here have any idea if this is common problem with the 99 Civic? We have had it for 10 years without any problems.
Thanks in advance.
