Default Honda civic wont stay running?

The car will run for a second and die. It tries to start but just doesnt start . Every ounce in awhile it will start and run for a second or two. I have posted this problem twice with no resolution. Again i am 100$% it is not a fuel problem. I diconnected the injectors and checked with starting fluid and it is not fuel!! 150psi compression. Gets spark at all cylinders!! Any legitimate mechanics that no some other checks??And to the RETARDS that want to bag on HONDA. The Big three auto makers in the US can only dream of making a car as reliable and as well made as Foreign cars!!! My honda has 369,000 on it!! If this were an american car with this many miles it would have had the motor rebuilt about 6 times so please no idiots especially ones that dont no there ASS from a hole in the ground!!!!!!!!!!Figured out the problem! The rotor was stripped and and not firing at the right point. Thats why i was getting spark at all cylinders just not at the right time!! Oh ya!! Im sure it is not fuel related!

I would check the ignition. Meaning as the coil and the control module.. the coil u can check for resistance.. and if the coil is not giving proper juice it will do that.. Also most auto parts places can checks ignition control modules .. .. But i had a similar prob.. and used a multimeter to ohms test the coil and it was faulty replaced it and the can ran like a champ again.. also buy a Haynes repair manual or Chilton's.. they will help a lot

are the plugs fouled?correct firing order?check your timing.just because your getting fuel to the injectors doesnt mean they are spraying.. could be clogged or not firing.check the plugs.. do they have fuel on them? oil? dry?all you need is fuel, spark, compression, and timing.check engine light on? check your code... here..

are you sure it's not a fuel issue? You disconnected the injectors and tried to run it on starting fluid. Did it run on the spray? If it ran on the spray then I would say definite fuel problem. You could have fuel there but not enough pressure.If it didn't run on the spray, look into the spark side. Making sure the timing is right, good spark at all cylinders, coil is in on all resistence checks. I think on the civic the primary side will carry a .6-.9 ohms, and the secondary will carry 15k-19lk ohms. If you have spark and compression, as you said, I, myself, would look more into the fuel side. You're on the right track. Probably just over looking something.keep up the good work
