Take it to a parts store, they will check for engine trouble codes for free. They plug a hand held scan tool into the cars computer port under the dash, it reads stored codes on the cars computer. Write them down, ask what they mean, and how to fix the problem. This should solve your 'sputters and no pick up' problem. U can return here to post any questions u may have, include any engine codes.

Sputters when i give it gas and jumps when picking up speed and sometimes idles rough?

You don't say how many miles its done so is it due a good engine service? Its no good sticking it on a diagnostic unit if its already sick. Get the basics done first.

Car starts when cold but not warm

I have had this problem in the past. It is a weak coil or pick up coil. When it is cold it will start and run just fine but when it warms up it will sputter and not run good at all. You will need to change the coil or pick up coil in ya distributor and it will run fine.

Engine stalls when turning left hand corners.

turn left, sputter, sputter, pop! sputter, sputter..............vvveeerrrooommm !? WTF? Crazy 91 Honda CRX just became a death car tryin to get through an intersection. Checked all my wires and ended up in the gas tank tryin to put the fuel pump back together. POS pump is in the left side of the tank!? So if you got a few miles on it the fuel pump screen can fall off. Turn left and the last 1/8th of a tank goes to the right leaving a 3/4 ton chevy in your girlfrends lap...well almost. I still got the CRX, the girl got droped off at the car wash cuz she smelled like poo.

No pick up

Have you changed the fuel filter lately. Sounds like you have a fuel restriction. You could have a clogged catalytic converter. When the car is in park rev the engine and listen. Does it sound like the exhaust is having a hard time getting out? Hope this helps.
