Have a accord that runs rough, if i put the pedal to the floor the car bogs down, when i unplug the map the car seems to idle better and accelerate, but if i nail it it dies, i do not know what else i can do, i think it could be electrical, i have changed the plugs,the fuel filter,the plugs the map,the gas, i still have not found a solution to this problem
One thing you could try is your fuel injectors there are two things to do put a screwdriver to the injector and then put your ear by the screwdriver do this to each injector you should hear a clicking noise which means they work the unplug each injector with the car running and make sure the car idle drops if not replace the injectors

new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.
When cold start is on will make more fuel to the engine for warm up. Only makes sense that even after warm up it's still putting the extra fuel into the engine that a heat sensor is bad. Namely the one connected to the MAP. Use your head, not the mechanics with all they're test equipment that are checking the wrong thing. You've put out a lot of cash because they don't know what to check for and are putting YOU through this. They're in it for the money pal. Not to help fix your problem.
To begin with, is your "check engine (CE)" light on? If it was on and now its not, you need to replace the bulb. If CE lights is on, find out the codes before doing anything. If bulb is good and "CE" does not come on, begin with: (1) gapping spark plugs, (2) replace spark plug wires (if haven't changed them within the last 2), then the coil. If your Cinco is still idles rough, adjust gas pedal until idling smoothly. If this still doesn't help, replace your two oxygen sensors. If still running rough, the converter. After doing all this and problem is still present, take it to a mechanic you trust.
Sounds like the timing open the distributor and in there is a relector,is there alot of corrosion? This reluctor has a tendency to shift out of position causing the vehicle timing to retar,Another area to inspect is the MAP (manifold air pressure) .This sensor monitor engine load according to vacuum when this goes out you cant accelerate the vehicle and it sputters as the vehicle tries to accelerate,you need to check that the vacuum hose has not come off,or just failed
Have u checked to make sure that the fuel filter isn't plugged, and it could be possible that the fuel pump is bad -being cracked or haveing a bad seal in it allowing fuel to leak back in the gas tank, as soon as your fuel pump warms up the leak would expand dropping your power
