Default Issue with 1999 Honda Civic


I am having an issue with my 1999 Honda Civic.

In mid 2010 after I would turn on my car, the battery light and oil light would come on and stay on. After that occurred, the engine would cut off and the car was not drivable. I took the car to one of these chain automobile repair places and they told me that I had to get a tune up and that the problem was electrical. After that was done, the car did the same issue. Let me also add that the car would be driveable after a few tries. When I got the car to moving the car would not shut down on me. I ended up complaining to the service center and they wanted me to bring it back and incur another expense. They told me that another part needed to be replaced and of course I was upset. I felt as though the problem should be corrected the first time and I did not bring it back to them.

Fast forward to December 2010 and the issue came up again after returning froma week long vacation. At the airport parking lot, the car had troubvle starting and both the oil light and the batter light came on, and then the engine shut off. I tried a few times and was able to get my car operational.

I brought it to the Honda Service Center in Tenafly and the only thing they did was check the battery and they told me it was fine. I should have made them do more. A few days later the same issue came up with the lights coming on and the engine shutting off. I brought the car back and they told me that this was due to a massive oil leak, and that there was a broken gasket that needed to be replaced. They said when they checked the oil, there was virtually no oil on the dipstick. They did the work and I took the car home. 2 days later the same issue occurred. I check the dipstick myself and the oil level was good.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
