    Ok, i worked on my sons honda civic today and i got it running... I cranked and cranked and crank the starter until it finally fired up... it's very hard to start without cranking it like that... also, after the car finally starts it idles fine... but, if you stab the gas peddle there's power loss like it's not getting enough fuel or something... but if you gradually step on the gas peddle it will steadily increase power and rev up like normal... I'm totally stumped??? does anyone know what would cause that?

Check the Main Relay and it's fuse. If you think a weak battery might be a factor:

Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

If your car turn over and it sound like it want to start then i think it is your ignition coil so got car scrap yard get another that is your vehicle and put it in.
