    I have the same car and had the flashing D4 not starting problem. It's some relay in the steering column and it's ~$150ish to replace if I remember correctly, but I haven't had the problem in 3 years now. Also, if it won't start, you can pull the ECU fuse for 10 seconds and pop it back in, it'll start right up every time (used that fix for years)!

Check the catalytic converter. If the carbon monoxide cant get out, it sometimes will act like this. It plugs up over time.

Has it ever been replaced??

I did mine about 2 months before I got rid of my Civic.

By the way, the exhaust system on most Hondas is the Welded, so you have to pull off the whole line from the back of the motor to the muffler.

I had the same problem with mine! I spent what seemed like hours trying to figure it out. I finally gave up and just said, while I'm here I'll just do all my preventative maintenance checks and give up for now. I noticed while checking the radiator that the antifreeze was low so I added a little less than a couple of quarts, closed the hood, started it to move it back to the driveway and guess what? It fixed itself! I guess it was just low enough on fluid it was telling itself, "I need to warm up." Hey, maybe you'll get lucky and the same simple thing might be the problem. Also their is a (usually vac. controlled) switch located on the throttle linkage that allows your engine to de-accelerate "softer" instead of just dropping all at once when you let off the gas. I have seen these switches with age or dirt and grime, stick in a position that the throttle wont fall all the way down. A couple of things to check that my be a simple fix. Hope all works out for you!

When i accelerate strongly my car bucks

Previous owner may have put the incorrect spark plugs in it. Other than that your fuel filter could be blocked up. Worse case your cam could have a wiped lobe.

Stuttering in idele and acceleration

Has the fuel tank been low lately? How cold where you are? Add 2 bottles of fuel "Heat" to the gas tank, and be sure to fill up...and keep fuel level above 1/4. Hope this helps.

My 91 honda accord drives fine,but after driving for a while it starts to hesitate and only drives when i accelerate and decelerate what's the problem?

If the car starts to hesitate at right around 2000 to 2300 RPMs then the EGR ports on the intake manifold need to be cleaned out. The exhaust gas is flooding only one cylinder and causing the hesitation(misfire of that flooded cylinder) since all the other ports are blocked off with carbon build-up. This happen right when the EGR valve opens, letting in the exhaust gas. To find out if this is indeed your problem, remove and plug up the rubber vacuum hose going into the EGR valve and drive the car. If it stops hesitating, that's the problem.

Have the Idle Control Solenoid Valve cleaned up.

Or it might be defective. See steps below to check...
  1. Disconnect idle control solenoid valve electrical connector.
  2. Disconnect upper hose to solenoid valve from manifold and apply vacuum to hose. Valve should hold vacuum.
  3. Continue applying vacuum to hose and briefly energize valve by connecting battery positive terminal to the black/yellow wire terminal and negative battery terminal to the green/black wire terminal. Valve should not hold vacuum when energized.
  4. If idle control solenoid valve fails to perform as outlined, valve is defective.

Strange engine stuttering problem around 1500 to 1800 rpms.

YOU CAN TEST IT WITH A OHM"s meter or a multi meter one is your ground wire the other two send the signal to your computer.what you are looking for is when you rotate the throttle do it as slow as possible and as steady.If the reading jumps alot when you slowly rotate the throttle then it is a bad tps.let me know what the outcome is.Thank you for using fixya

If your car is fuel injected it may be the throttle position sensor, (TPS) hook up a DVOM and check that voltage output of sensor is steady closed to open throttle, since 35MPH is near closed throttle, that is were to focus your attention, also the mass air flow meter (MAF) may be at fault, do you have any codes? These 2 parts donot as a rule set codes.
