Question about Honda Civic
Tuned up my car it started went back to drive it put it in gear started and stalled now it wont start
First of all, I need info. Year? Engine? mileage? conditions? What all was replaced? By tune-up I'm assuming you replaced plugs/wires/cap and rotor/etc. On earlier Civics it is VERY easy to miss the coil tower with the contact pin while installing the dist. cap. And it's also easy to knock one of the wires off of the igniter/ignition module while doing so as well. Also, if you replaced the fuel filter, keep in mind you'll have to give it a couple key cycles to prime the new filter. Hope that helps. Post back if you still have a problem.

I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.

I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.

What was replaced in the tune up? Usually the coil paks cause these types of issues. Also fuel filter or fuel pump will allow enough fuel to start and sputter like you describe.
