Question about 1998 Honda Accord
No engine option stated, so , impossible.
the dizzy timing is way off, if in fact its a dizzy car. (distributor)
if not dizzy the cam CMP sensor is loose or some one fiddled it blind.
timing way to far advanced
so use a stroble light and set the timing to spec reading how to do that
in the FSM. (open hood lookup there is the static timiing spec, right there on all usa cars 1998.
to set timing the book shows the timing freeze jumper.
EFI needs that.
dont drive an pinging engine, or the pistons will shatter.
i warned you !-

Honda has issued a recall on several models which have problems with the ignition switch. The recall includes vehicles from about 1992 through 2004 ( I'm really not sure of the years. ) Do a search for Honda ignition switch recall and you'll find some links. When you call the dealer I would suggest that you have your VIN handy so he can confirm your vehicle. This is a recall and should not cost you a dime for the repair.

p2004 (Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open)You need to take a look at the IMRC actuators on the intake manifold. You can try using a screwdriver or other tool to move the actuators to see if one is stuck in the open position. Do not use your fingers to do this, because if one is open and decides to close it has a bit of force behind it and can injure you. If the IMRC is stuck open, it is usually due to deposits in the intake manifold. Repair involves removing the upper intake manifold and cleaning out any deposits in the IMRC plate area. I would try running some Techron Concentrate in 2 tanks of gas to see if it dissolves enough of the gunk on the plates to free up the stuck one. Certainly a lot cheaper than having to pull the intake manifold and cleaning the plates. Always run tier one gasoline like Shell or Chevron to reduce the buidup of deposits.

Hi, since you've replaced everything else, about the only thing left is the crankshaft position sensor. This is the sensor the computer uses to time the spark signals. Because this sensor is expensive, I recommend you test it first to verify it's bad before replacing. I have pasted test procedures below as well as replacement procedure in case it fails the tests. You will need an ohmmeter for the test. If you don't have an ohmmeter, you can buy one for as little as $10, or maybe you can borrow one. You will also need a timing light if you replace the sensor. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

TESTING CRV and 1995 Odyssey Models
CRV models: The blue and white wires. The resistance should be 300-700 ohms. 1995 Odyssey models: The blue/green and blue/yellow wires. The resistance should be 700-1,300 ohms.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CRV and 1995 Odyssey Models
ADJUSTMENT CRV and 4-Cylinder Odyssey Models
If equipped with an automatic transaxle, place the shifter in Park or Neutral. If equipped with a manual transaxle place the shifter in Neutral. Make sure to apply the parking brake and block the drive wheels.
Odyssey models with 4-cylinder engines: centrally located on the passenger side, under the dash. The connector has two wires; one is brown with a black tracer, and the other wire is red.
See Figures 1 and 2
2.2L/2.3L Odyssey 2.2L models: 13-17° at 650-750 rpm

Usually the only way you are going to fix this is to remove the intake and clean the linkage for the intake mainfold runners-sometimes you can 'inhale' a bottle of Sea Foam into a vacuum line while the engine is running and it will loosen the butterflys enough to un-stick it, just do it slowly enough that you do not cause hydrolic lock-let it 'sip' the entire bottle, and thenm shut it down, allowind it to soak into the intake for 15-20 minutes. When you restart the car, it is going to smoke heavily-that is good, it is removing the carbon buildup in the intake, and it won't go away for a good 5-10 minutes. Drive it gently, then agressively to clean it out.and for good measure pour a bottle in the gas tank while it is low on fuel, and drive it for 12-15 miles like that. All of this may or may not fix the problem-like I said earlier, the sure-fire way to fix this is to disassemble the intake to get to the intake runners. You might be able to manually close the plates by pushing on the linkage at the intake manifold runner control solinoid, if you have enough room to get to it.
