Question about 1999 Honda Civic

Hesitation on '99 Honda Civic EX

Sometimes when I accelerate from a stop light or stop sign, my car hesitates and jerks, sometimes violently. I either have to let go of the gas and ease back onto it or sometimes the car catches and everything is cool. It hasn't died on me yet, altho it feels like it has wanted to a few times. The problem will usually persist until I arrive at my destination and sometimes won't do it on the way back from wherever I go. There are some days when it does not do this at all.. It seems to be the transmission but I don't know if it doesn't want to shift or it can't find the gear or what. I got some transmission additive and that seemed to work for about a month but then the problem came back. Should I just keep buying the additive (its only 10 bucks and once a month isn't bad) or am I just making the problem worse and the car will eventually give out on me?

    run the code test, it is free at any Kragen or Autozone parts store, it is the 1st place to start, let me know what they come up with.

Check your ignition timing, looks like firing is advance.

2002Honda civic ex jerks and hesitates when not accelerating


I would have the catylic convertor checked.
Then have the transmission check . I am guessing the transmission is automatic. The torque convertor could be shuttering when slowing down to a stop.

Hesitation on '99 Honda Civic EX


Try Getting Some Fuel Additive Injector Cleaner To Clean Your Valves For The Hesitation Problem.

For The Transmission Id Recommend A Full transmission Flush
With Filter Change. Not Many People Know The Transmission Filter Exists But Surprise.
