I was comin home from work the other day and downshifted into second b/c I had to slow down and then I went to go again and the car just started to back fire. I wasn't really driving hard before I slowed down. The car died and would not start. Everytime I try and start it, it sounds like it wants to start but it just continues to back fire through the exhaust. The timing belt looks fine(someone said maybe it jumped the timing). I'm not really sure what to check next. Someone suggested it might be the MAP sensor, but every website I've seen said the car will run, but poorly. Here's the link to everything I have done to my crx, this might help.
Thanks, Chris

take off the distrubutor cap and check the rotor, the screw probably popped out, just put the screw back threw the rotor and it should work.
