Question about 1996 Honda Accord
I've replaced wires, cap, rotor and distributer. I saw somewhere here about the EGR ports but can't seem to find article to see if this was for intermittent misses. I thought maybe the TPS but not sure at this point any ideas would be great.
If you pull the connector off your TPsensor, and with multimeter in ohms, touch it to 2 of the pins (not sure which 2 on yours but trial & error will tell you & won't hurt anything if your wrong.) Have someone either hold the probes for you, or push gas pedal slowly for you, ( can do it manually from under hood to.). As the throttle increases (opens) the reading on the meter will do the same, then back down slowly and meter reading will do the same. Run it from stop to wide open, slowly & steadily, and back the same way a few times & observe the meter reading. If the meter goes up & down at a steady reading and doesn't jump a bunch or flutter, then chances are your TP sensor is fine. A jump from one number to another or erratic readings, indicates a faulty TPsensor. (Potentiometer) If it has a sticky or bad spot in the TPsensor, it feeds wrong or no info to computer, thus car acts up.
