Question about 1996 Honda Civic
Last year I had my timing belt, water pump and catalytic converter replaced- that is painful the cost of getting all three done at the same time!!
Anyway a few days later I started noticing, (from stop light) on acceleration the car stalls or it feels like the engine kicks back. This occurs mostly around speed 25-35 miles/hr. The car is fine at higher speeds.
I have got a bunch of suggestion that states it could be a vacuum leak, a serious transmission problem, timing belt needs to be readjusted.
Any suggestions that will fix the problem without going into expensive repairs.

Try the crankshaft position sensor. I had the same problem with mine. Hope this helps.

It sounds like the timing is off a tooth to me too. I changed the head gasket on my 1996 ford ranger and when I put it back together I suffered a major loss in acceleration power, but the dam thing idled fine and ran fine. So to make a long story short after checking all kinds of things it wound up being that when I put engine back together I missed the timing by one tooth on the timing cog.

I WOULD TAKE IT BACK TO MAKE SURE THE TIMING IS CORRECT I KNOW THAT IF IT IS OFF 1 TOOTH IT WOULD MAKE IT DO THIS PROBLEM
