Question about 1998 Honda Civic
Moving only or parked.
the ECU, does its best to prevent stalls, in fact it can raise the
idle speed, to stop just that. this is ISC actions. idle speed controls.
if the car love to stall, coming to a traffic light , this is usually
the EGR sticking wide open. (it closes just before you stop)
you can save the stall with a fast right foot
easy? ISC sticking
harder, EGR sticking
impossible. (lost fueling or lost spark or bad DC power to EFI)
the FSM shows the 50k service to clean the EGR main valve.
it must not be sticky. the isc is the same deal, they too can gum up. 1998 , easy.

Its possible that your transmissions Shift Solonoids could be acting erratically, either because they themselves are faulty, or the transmission's ECU is faulty, or maybe even the wiring between the two is somewhat faulty.
However it is also possible that your transmission's Speed Governor is holding too much pressure and doesn't realize it needs to downshift when you start slowing down.
Thirdly it is also possible that your Torque-Converter lockup may be siezed, or the wiring feeding it may be faulty.
Transmission repairs are usually somewhat pricey, and difficult to pinpoint, and fix, and I'm sorry to say that most of these causes to your problem really can't be checked without pulling the transmission out of the car, and disassembling it to see what the problem is.

Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

It is on the lower left side of the engine (side towards firewall - see picture).
Knock sensor failures are pretty rare, why are you looking for it?
