    I got in my 97 civic 4dr yesterday, and it just clicked. The battery was filthy, so I got a new clamp and cleaned the other one. I got the battery checked and it tested good. A friend and I pop-started it and it ran. I shut it off to see if ot would start back up, and it wouldn't. We pop-started it again and I thought it would be fine, but on the way home, it died 5 or 6 times. It seemed to only die when I pushed the clutch all the way down, but not every time. Pop-starting the car made me think that it was my starter, but I don't think a bad starter would cut the power out when it is running. I really need help, this is my daily driver and I have a 60 mile trip every day for work.

    Will do. Let me know if you can think of anything else. I have a few people telling me that it could be the alternator. I'll post what I find out.
