Question about 1995 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Engine has a miss

When accelerating slowly from a dead stop, the engine has a miss, causing the car to lunge. if i accelerate fast, it doesn't do it. also, when traveling between 50 and 60mph, it has a miss, but once above 65 to 70mph, it goes away. i've changed the plugs and plug wires, but it didn't help. i've tried changing the fuel filter, but can't get it out. could this be a sensor?

    i do not understand the reasoning behind your potential fix. this car is fuel injected. if one of the injectors were clogged, i would think that a miss would be more likely to occur when accelerating fast as opposed to accelerating slow. also, a clogged injector should cause the vehicle to have a constant miss, instead of only certain times. other than changing the injectors, is there any way to check this?

Check the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Improper adjustment or faulty sensor can cause such a problem.

Sounds like a lack of fuel because you use more more when moving away. there sould be a blockage in 1 of the jets in the carb.joe

Starts missing /large dead stop when accelerating


The missing while accelerating is likely due to ignition coils and/or spark plugs going bad. The missing while in park is a normal thing. The car has a rev limiter that will not allow the engine to rev to higher than 3000 RPM while in park.

After I replaced the fuel pump my 02 Suzuki xl7 dogs down when you accelerate quickly. if you let off the pedal and accelerate slowly it picks up fine. at idle it does have what seems to be a miss fire but...


so you ignore the hard DTC fails.
that is odd. why do that?
you do know a stuck open EGR cause most stalls and tip in
bogs, right?
a bad 02 if the front 02 , can cause too rich or too lean running
too rich fouls sparks, and too lean causes bogs.
but not accelerating as the 02 is dead then.
bad TPS can cause tip in bogs, in fact that is its #1 job.
called ENrich mode during acceleration.

not checking fuel pressure is bad service.,
the car must have 30 psi pressure at all times.
not 5 not 10 , or 20 or 60
30 (the FSM has the spec, for each engine , not stated)
if the fuel pressure is good, then forget the pump or regulator.
good means , at spec . not useless squirt tests....

the 4x4 cars have insensitive P0300 misfire detection due
to preventing offroad false misfires reported.
so most 4x4 drivers feel it first way, before P03xx happens.
this is normal, but not misfire.
why not post the real o2 code. there are many.
post them all. the real codes.
post here.

This sounds like a problem with the throttle position sensor. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes will narrow down the cause of the problem and should eliminate the need for speculation. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

It sounds like a fuel delivery issue so it could be many things such as low fuel pressure from the pump,clogged or partially pluged fuel filter, a malfunctioning throttle posisitioning sensor (if you have a check engine light on) or if its turbo it could be turbo lag etc.
