First you have to be sure you car does not have an transponder key system , that is a chip inside the head of the key that sends a four digit code to a reciver in the car and activates the ignition so you can start the car, call the dealer and give them your vin number they should be able to tell you if you have this or not, another way to tell is remove the plactice trim around the steering colum and look around the ignition for a coil of wire this is the recivier antenna, if you have this system your only option is to get the car to honda to have a key made and they will reporgram the transponder key system, otherwise while you have the trim off take a look at it and you will know if you can handle it, and if you have the tools to tackle it. not very difficult if it is a normal honda non tranponder setup, but i think you may have the transponder good luck -jeff

My air conditioning in my Honda Civic LX 2001 doesn't work and my mechanic says he needs to replace the car's computer. I am reluctant to do so since all of the other features regulated by my computer...

Change the mechanic to a normal person, computer is the last thing you touch, get a professional AC person to check it for you, it can be only small problem.

My Honda Civic 1994 cuts out as I am driving

You are going to need a new distributor. These are such a common problem that they are available, new from any auto parts store. It's possible that you may have just a bad module or coil or pick-up, but if you just replace one of these after hours of trying to pin it down, another will fail eventually. A new distributor is not that expensive and it has all of these parts inside of it.
