So, there's a few things to do to fix this. There is the air boost valve, which is on the driver's side of the the intake plenum.. They get a hole in the internal diaphragm, which causes idle surging. Replace it or buy a block off plate from ebay and remove it and block it off. Second is your FITV (Fast Idle Thermal Valve), which is on the front of the same plenum with two vacuum hoses leading to it nearest the driver's side. You can remove the top of it and tighten the seal inside with a flat head carefully until it's fully seated, as that seal backing out causes idle surge. Third is your Electronic Air Control Valve, which is next to the FITV and has a black solenoid looking top. Remove that, pull the gasket off of it and soak it in parts cleaner to get all the gunk off of the screen and passages. Replace the gasket and reinstall. Also clean the throttle body with throttle body/carb cleaner and replace the gasket. After you do all 4 of these and make sure the new seals/gaskets are installed and everything is done right, bleed and feel your coolant system, then disconnect your battery for a few minutes to reset your computer. When you restart the car, let it idle without touching the throttle until the radiator fans come on, which will tell you that your computer is now reset (You have to do this to let the computer relearn the idle pattern.)
Here's a link to show you what to do in case any of this confused you:

How do you change the Camshaft sensor on the 98 2.3 honda accord, i think it maybe inside the distributor iam not sure if it is or not.


The 1998 Accord 3.0L has a camshaft sensor. The 2.3L has a "Cylinder Position Sensor" (CYP), which is used to detect the position of the #1 cylinder for fuel injection purposes. This sensor is located internal to the distributor and if it fails, the distributor must be replaced as a unit.

My 1993 honda accord sputters when accelerating


If you can't answer when the last time you changed the fuel filter it might not be a bad idea to change it. It could also be a vacuum leak as older cars ran on vacuum controls for emissions and things like that. listen for a possible whistle when accelerating or air being sucked in like a vacuum cleaner. Could also be a bad map sensor, or O2 sensor.
