    Hey hows it going? My buddy has a 96 Civic EX with the 1.6. For some reason it will start up then stall like a minute later, then it wont start anymore. The alternator is good, it has been tested along with the battery. Any ideas on what it could be? Im trying to get more information on it cause he lives in Rhode Island so im doing this from Pittsburgh. As soon as I can get more info on it, Ill post it. Thanks for your help.
