1991 Honda civic was running fine down the freeway and started making a bunch of popping sounds and ran super rough and eventually died and I haven't got it to start back up.

Timing belt would have been a good thing to service before it broke.

It's a old high mileage junky car and has body issues along with other issues and all I'm trying to do is keepit till I can buy a newer car. So does that sound like a timing belt? I dint know anything about Hondas so input is appreciated. Thanks

Yes it sounds like the timeing,the bad is usually in theses cars when it happens,it damages the head on the engine,but some times it dont,may get lucky reset timing and with new belt,but i would replace the idlers while doing it,or it could happen again,check the belt,if it is broke,have the compression checked on engine before you spend time putting belt on,it will let you know if head is damaged and in need of repair,,,Good luck with it

I think timing belt service interval on these cars is 60,000 miles.

The car had over 263,000 miles on it when I got it and no maintenance or service history worth mentioning and it's a ugly little turd brown p.o.s. and I wouldn't even bother messing with it except for the fact that it's STILL getting about forty miles per gallon and I'm coming out of a bad relationship so money is a problem as far as buying a newer car right now so I'm trying to keep it going long enough for me to be able to afford payments. Sucks but what would suck more is not being able to keep my job because I don't have a car. My job depends on my car soooo hopefully I'll get this fixed without too much collateral damages. And I forgot to mention that my motor still cranks so the belt didn't break enough to get caught up in the pulleys so that's a good sign.

Best of luck with it.
