Question about 1999 Honda Civic
Seems to me that you may have over adjusted the valves, maybe making some of them too tight?....
it's also possible that the timing belt may have been a tooth out....both problems would cause a rough or bad idle....Sometimes no idle at all....
First thing to do is check the timing marks on the gears, and make sure that all of them line up exactly on their pointers.....You may have to reset them by removing and reinstalling the timing belt.... make sure that the marks still line up after turning the engine by hand three or four full cycles.
I'm sure you know that a full rotation of 360 degrees is half a cycle.....
After doing that, you'll need to check the ignition timing and set it if necessary....
