Question about 1999 Honda Civic
Yesterday on the highway at 65mph my 99 honda civic lost speed,icuold barely make it to the side of the highway,engine died and would not start again.
Does the engine sound different when it cranks? It might be a timing belt concern? Remove the oil cap and look for the camshaft.(you might need a flashlight).Have a partner crank the engine and watch the cam. If it stays still you have a bad timing belt.Let me know what you find.

My daughter was driving along Spring Cypress and her engine quit running,she thought she was out of gas. She put gas in,but the car would not start. We checked the rocker arms and distributor but get no spark. Engine cranks good,but have not checked fuel pump yet. It would not fire with starter fluid. We are open for suggestions before taking it in for repair. 1999 Honda civic. Thank you, Oldsalty June 3,2009

Timing is a deffinete concern and it easy enough to check also to check if it is the fuel pump spray some starter fluid in the intake while a partner turns it over. it will fire or putter but then you know it a gas issue but check if the cam rotate as autodoc said because you dont want to be cranking it more than you need to it the timing belt did go out.

Iv a feeling its your fuel pump as they give trouble on these!!can you hear a noise when you turn on the key like "buzzzzzzzzzz" if not them id say your fuel pump is gone!! if this is the problem it is located underneath your back seat and is just a matter of loosening a few screws
