Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got a 2002 Honda Civic 4 door non
VTEC engine automatic I put diesel in it
and fill the tank up.. after it died had it
towed to a shop where we pump the fuel
out and then put regular fuel in and
pumped it through the system we had
the car running and we thought it was
fixed but it went around the block and it's
dead again not firing what should I do
now.

This will require a full rebuild of the fuel system- new tank fuel pump, new injectors- i mean you can keep trying the easy way- but- find a good mechanic who knows what diesel does to gas cars-
