Timing belt must have broken. Car will crank but not start and immediately power down when the belt brakes.

It might be the igniters/ignitors, i had a 1991 honda civic si and a 1996 acura integra gs-r that did the same thing. I think honda/acura needs to recall some cars, its very dangerous. The ignitors are on the firewall towards the back of the engine, the look like cylinders.
