    this pertains to a 1998 honda civic LX, at, ac, 163000 miles:
    recently during the last few months whenever i'm travelling at between
    20 and 40 mph and i've had to brake very suddenly and very hard, the
    engine stalls as soon as the car comes to complete stop. never used to
    do that before. engine starts up w/o any difficulty afterwards. a/c
    is NOT on when this happens. engine does NOT do this when i brake
    normally, i.e., non-panic stop.
    any ideas on what's causing this and what components to check? any
    advice would be greatly appreciated .....
