Have the car checked for the fault codes. I suspect it's your oxygen sensor.

Car cuts out during driving at highway speeds.


that is very good, the cars momentum will in fact restart the car.
with a M/T tranny, with A/T it slips. so is car a M/T , stick?
do post tranny type, we cant guess that....???
misfires and stalls. the engine stalls, the ECU tries very hard to
prevent stalls, but failed to do so...
you are loosing electric power, 12vdc , and this kills EFI
is the CEL lamp not coming on at 0rpm when the engine does stall>?
if not you lost 12v. hard fact.
this is not hard to find or fix ,if lost 12v.
when you lose 12v the dash goes dead, warning lamps fail.
and in such a stated, the key crank will be dead.
after all there is no 12v to do the cranking, from key.
its an old car and all cars fail there is no car that does not.
all machines do. even space shuttles. fail 1:50 times.

if you have a voltmeter, connect it to the CIG lighter port.
and see if the 13.3 to 15vdc running drops to zero or below 10v.
if yes, BINGO.
the CIG steals power from the ignition power feed.

when any key start fails to crank here are some tricks.

in view of your post , you have 2 non related problems
or the battery cables are corroded. ever clean them>
one other trick is have head lights on, at the stall
are the headlamps FULL bightness at the stall>?????? very easy test.

Check Engine light going on for a '98 Civic Hatchback


Well, go to Auto Zone and have them read the error code it is setting. They'll tell you what the issue is. Usually, if it's not running hot and the oil light is not coming one, you can drive it for a while. It could be something you need to have repaired, though, or it may cause more damage.

I have a 1990 honda civic hatchback si with an 89 ZC DOHC black top engine.. the rear motor mount is cracked and each time i down shift the engine raddles.. how do i change out the mount? and if possible.....


You will need something to lift the engine so that you can take the pressure off of the mount. It sounds like your fuel pump may be wearing out and it is not responding like it should...The pump on the gas tank should be located on the top of the tank....Under the back seat....
