THE CAR WILL START, BUT THEN SHUT OFF WITH-IN TWO SECONDS. WHETHER LETTING IT IDLE ON OWN OR REVVING IT, WILL STILL SHUT OFF AFTER SAME TIME AMOUNT.

I just did some 'routine' maintenance to prevent any problems on an up-coming road trip. I replaced the drive belts, timing belt, alternator, and installed a K&N Intake kit. Also did a motor oil, coolant, and MTF change. The car starts quickly as usual every time, but seems to shut itself off after almost 2 seconds. Doesn't matter whether 500 or 5,000 rpm. The engine is a 1.7 liter SOHC

I did that tonight, but the issue still remains. Also tried holding the ignition after car started to see if it perhaps would tell me something, but it still dies after seconds.
If this started after repairs check to see if a sensor is diconnected also is check engine light on?
All sensors have been cleaned and connected. Check engine light does not remain on. Just re-checked all vacuum lines, they seem good. I'm inclined to think it's the fuel pump or pump relay, but those both tested functional. What energizes the fuel pump relay, that could be the source of my malfunction?
The computer closes relay. Do you have way to check fuel pressure? Will it restart after shuit down? Is there spark after it dies?
It does restart after shut down, every time. There is spark after shut down. While I was at work my brother tested the fuel pressure and said it was normal, though I haven't tested it myself.
Would help to check for codes you said Timming belt replaced right? Would help if knew what stops spark or fuel. Hook up guage for fuel see if pressure drops off when it dies
The computer is showing no codes when I scan it, I'll check to see if the fuel pressure drops after engine dying.
O.K. Going to contact a buddy that is great on Hondas so you maybe geating a posy from klow
Check the pickup coils in the distributor and also the distributor shaft
