Car is a 1988 Honda Civic, 1.6L
I have replaced Fuel Relay, Distributor with Ignition Coil, Timing is perfect, I have spark, Fuel. Driving one day, everything fine and then the engine just cut out while driving and never restarted. Compression test shows, 1C = 70pnds, 2C = 80 pnds, 3C=80pnds, 4C = 100pnds. No reason for this to have happened. Vehicle engine is two years old. Please help

The compression looks low and you have 30psi difference between 1 and 4.
