    Hey guys I'm new to the forum. I Googled the problem I'm having with my 95 integra RS. I'd really apprepciate and ideas u might have. I copied this off the thread that i read but its exactly the problem im having so....
    !!PLEASE HELP!!

    Setup: 95 Integra b18b1.
    Mods: AEM V2 intake, TB mod, ground wire kit
    Recent Maintenance: Denso Iridium Spark Plugs, Bosh Premium Spark Plug Wires, Mobile 1 sythetic oil, Mobile 1 oil filter

    Problem: while i am driving, under normal conditions, my engine will "hiccup" and "jerk" like i kicked the clutch and then shut off. its like turning your key off and and right back on as your driving down the highway. there is nothing that i can do to make it do this. its completely random. sometimes the car will start up right away and sometimes it takes ages. Right now i can't get the car to start. once in a while the car fires up then shuts off after a second. :( :confused:

    Have you checked for a spark or fuel? Sounds like a problem with your igniter or coil. Sometimes they are funny like that. I would start by checking for spark and going from there. I know you said it starts for a second and dies but if your coil is bad it can do that. If you don't have a spark check your igniter and coil, distributor cap etc....
    Good luck
