Civic stops dead

Hey Folks! Never a dull moment. Wife is at Wal-Mart, '95 Civic auto/w 160,000 quits. After my in-law coached her into runnibg the battery down, she called me and I jumpsed it . . . ran a minute, then quit again. Starter cranks the engine over fone, not too fast . . . so I’m thinking timing belt is OK (it was just done about 35k ago). Oil level fine, just changed last weekend. Battery is OK, just run down from too much cranking, it’s on the charger now. No start, rollback home. Here’s a few hints … it hasn’t rained here in the Poconos for over a month, today it poured (on me, too) and is still raining. This has me thinking igniter. I didn’t check for spark, it was pouring rain on the exit ramp from Wal-mart. Another hint . . . she drives close to empty (fuel) all the time. Every time I get in the car it is almost if not on “E”. This has me thinking fuel pump. Any suggestions? Tomorrow is diagnosis and part order day. Thanks! Rocketman
