My 1997 Honda civic won't run

Asked by Jun 20, 2014 at 05:18 PM about the 1997 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have replaced the battery the
ignition switch replaced multiple coils
and distributors and it will run and
drive but it continues to die while
driving it and then will not start back
up. It has 184,000 miles on it and I
know they can run for much longer
than this. Any ideas or
suggestions???
