Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
It starts normal and the rpm range is good but it does not respond to throtle
Weak engine power, no engine option stated or even a year.
1975 accord?????? surely id never guess....
so will answer generically (physics)
1: lost 12vdc electrical power to EFI (if not carb))
2: bad need of a tune up, the 60k mile service points listed in oper. guide in the glove box, lost it? ask we have it.
3: lost engine compression, forgot that 60k mile timing belt (boom)
4: lost spark to one cyl. or all.
5: bad fueling, ask for tests, once this far.
all the tests are easy, do you want to guess, or test?

my 1994 had the same problem,where the TPS sensor connects there is a small rod that moves you should be able to see it without taking anything apart it wsa rusty and sticking so i sprayed it with wd-40 a couple of times and that solved the problem for me,don't know it that will help but maybe it's worth a try. or maybe your throtle cable to the gas pedal has worn a grove inside the cable and you can't see this problem,but atleast have it checked to see if it's sticking.

Testimonial: "I HAD THE UNIT TPS OFF LAST SUMMER AND TESTED IT AND IT SEEMED TO BE SHOWING ACTION WHEN I USED THE VOM ON IT. I WILL CHECK FOR RUST AND STICKING "
If the security system is ok, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
