97 honda civic dx manual | Car wont stay started unless I give it gas but make a clicking sound when I do.

Asked by Feb 25, 2016 at 10:07 AM about the 1997 Honda Civic Coupe DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving home when all of a sudden it seemed to start losing power. I
dropped into 4th and it seemed to pick back up a little then it died. I was still
rolling at a decent speed so I started it again and pulled off of the highway
when it died again. The oil, battery and check engine light came on when I
tried to start it again. To keep it running I had to give it gas but it was
making a light clicking noise when I did.

Howdy, have you checked the fuel filter to see if it is original or replaced in recent times? Hope this helps, if not the fuel line you might try swinging by local parts store and see if computer is showing and codes to try and identify an issue(s).
