Welcome in,it's very possibly the cam position sensor,or an Alternator.

If there is no check engine lights, and everything shuts down when the car dies, check somewhere for a loose battery connection.

I searched this forum last week, and found a youtube video about this same problem, 99 civic, stalls, he changed the ignition switch. Well, I can't believe the difference, car starts first time always, and hasn't stalled. The hard part is disconnecting the terminals from the large block with 7 wires, I couldn't figure it out, I tried for 40 mins. I took a hacksaw to it. If you need a link to the video, post a message and I'll forward it to you. I changed the cap/rotor and fuel filter. Good luck.
