I have a 2005 Honda Civic 2Dr value package coupe. Of late the ride in my car has become very bouncy in the rear and I believe that my shocks and /or struts need replacing. How can I identify which needs to be replaced? Can you also tell me the level of difficulty would a job like this be if I am considering asking a handy friend to take this job on as a DIY project for me?

After 3 hours we tried starting it again and it worked. Drove it back home, tried starting it at home and it won't start again. Any ideas on what is going on here?

It start up again, but the car worked fine and didn't overheat. Then yesterday, when I started it, the engine sputtered for about 5 seconds and the check engine light came on.
