Question about 1991 Honda Civic
Engine stalls and check engine light comes on. Started as an intermittent problem two weeks ago then suddenly it goes from running great to not running. I changed the fuel filter and it still only starts then stalls white smoke comes out of tail pipe upon stalling. Check engine light comes on just before it stalls. I can no longer drive it. What is the problem, and what do I check next.
The white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.

It sounds to me like you have a head gasket leaking. See if you can get a gauge and check each cylinder. Are you using alot of anti freeze?
