I would first check to see if the car has any vacuum leaks. This will require some carburetor cleaner or a code reader that can show the readout of the oxygen sensor. Is the check engine light on? This will give a good starting point as to why the car behaves the way it does.

Other things to check would be the tune-up items like the spark plugs/wires/cap and rotor. There is a slight chance the fuel filter or fuel pressure regulator are causing this. Would need more information to help any farther than that. Hope this helps.

Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

It is not an eays job. I would have it done by a tecknician so you have a warranty. The honda dealer is your best bet because you will oem parts and the job will be done right . then you are good for another 90,000 miles. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer.

Did you replace your spark plug wires when you replaced the spark plugs? If so, I'm inclined to advise checking your O2 sensor.
