    did you replace the fuel filter? Your car is suffering from EGS(ethanol gas syndrome). The ethanol creates water and a goop that clogs fuel lines, injectors, and damages emission parts.

    Change the fuel filter, and a tank of Premium gas, and try that. let me know later on your success. Alao change the pcv valve. this could hurt also.

Check engine light and lost of power

This sounds a lot like a bad TDC (Top Dead Center) sensor. Of the many sensors on this model vehicle, the TDC sensor failure is common and is one of the few sensor failures that will disable your vehicle.

93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving

Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck
