    Let me get straight to the point... everytime i turn on my motor it idles for about 5 seconds, then shuts right off. For it to keep running, i have to have my foot on the gas pedal 24/7, even while braking. Now im used to it, but i realized that its killin my gas milage. I get 180 miles on a full tank!!!! (96 civic w/ b18b swap)

    So heres my question, what should i do to fix the problem?

    if you guys/gals can help, that'd be great.

    Thanks!
    Andrew

    dad had this problem with the crx when he drove it; ended up being the ignition module in the distributor cap. it pretty much is the brain telling fire and fuel to work together....so check that out mebbe? otherwise nfi but there are braniacs on this site that can sort you out ;)
