Question about 1990 Honda Accord
I have a 1990 honda accord lx, I am having a problem with getting power at higher gears.
If I put my foot to the floor from 0 mph I dont get a lot of power. It starts off as if i had my foot on the gas just a little bit.
Same thing happens on the high ways. i will be going 50 mph and then I will push it to the floor and it will give me the same power output as where I had the gas at doing 50mph.
I posted this problem. I asked around until I got enough of the same answer and found out that it was the transmission control unit. Pull up the front edge of your carpet on the passenger side and you'll se a steel cover with a couple 10 mm bolts in it, unplug the two on the lower right hand of the cover to make it easier to remove the controller.. There are two computers in this cover but the smaller one is for the transmission. Once I replaced this I also did the shift lock solenoid in the center console because it is believed to burn out the computer when it goes bad. I also replaced the shift selector solenoids ( two round solenoids located on one small plate near the top front of the transmission). Now my Honda shifts fine!!!

Check your air filter sounds like it is plugged up or restricted
