Having problems with your 2002 Honda Civic ?
My 2002 Honda Civic EX just had a timing belt replaced after 104,000 miles. The car ran fine for a few days then the engine quit. After that It started, died after 3 second and backfired. I have tried to reset the ECU, recharge the battery and tried to restart it many times and got same results everytime ( i.e. started and ran smoothly for 3 seconds and died) During that running time all warming lights went out (Brake, battery, oil, check engine, Maint, SRS) the warnibg lights came back on after
It is very poss the new timing belt jumped time from not being properly tensioned, the symptoms you have all indicate an out of time engine, check the camshaft alignment, make sure it is correct, having this go wrong after just a few days screams faulty repair, take it back to whom ever did the work.
