Engine Performance problem
1998 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 152000 miles
I just got my car back from the shop after having the muffler replaced. The tailpipe coming out of the muffler had a failed weld that caused it to be extremely noisy, but since it seemed more of a nuisance than a critical problem, I didn't have it fixed for 4-5 months. A few weeks ago, we started having a problem with the engine stalling every once in a while, and I just chalked it up to the engine not being able to exhaust properly. Since then, the problem has gotten increasingly worse and frequent, to the point where it will now stall at least 5-6 times in a 30 minute drive. The car only stalls when the clutch is depressed, not when the engine is idling, or under load. Any ideas what this might be? I'd like to try and get the problem as pinned down as I can so that I know what to ask for when I take it in, due to the fact that I don't have a whole lot of money for the repair and the diagnosis. Thanks a lot!
have the same problem?
