Hi I believe that it's because you are get to much air flow a way I found to test it is to take a peace of ducked tape and Cove part of the filter try half of it first

SOURCE: Van Sputters And Loses All Power When I Accelerate

Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).

Many times when oil appears in your air intake and in the air filter this is usually caused by a plugged pcv valve Positive crankcase ventilation valve it costs anywhere from 3-10 dollars.As far as it not starting my guess is they checked the air filter and left a vacuum hose or airbox open.Some of these vehicle will barely run if an air leak is present at the airbox containing the air filter.Would double check for any vacuum lines that may have been disconnected around the air box and that the box is shut and sealed properly.

93 Honda Accord Black Smoke When Accelerating

You have gone past the operating parameters of the computer sensors that measure air flow and manifold pressures There are many websites that deal with honda mods like yours, and likely you will find a cure there. I know there is a map sensor modification that can be made on Jeeps with the same items you have added, likely yours can be done as well. Try google and just type in honda forums and see what comes up.

Where is the IAt sensor on a 1999 honda accord 2.0 vtec es

Ive not been inside that model accord, but the IAT or AIT sensor serves the same function on my car. for me now its zip tied to a mundle of wires that lead to the O2 sensors. that is because of my aftermarket intake. for you if it was like mine then the box on the intake that holds the airfilter should have a small tube leading to the front of the car, these are used to guid in air, also on mine this is where they placed the AIT sensor, its small and dont go for the bigger box or oval shaped sensor befor the airbox. that probably your MAF sensor. so look and the end of the intake. if you dont see a sensor there take a picture of your engine bay, near the intake. maybe we could locate it with that.

1995 ford probe

The mass air flow sensor is right by the airbox.... It has two screws holding it into a body. Unplug it, unscrew it, and take it out of the housing. Its literally in plain view. Take it out and CAREFULLY put the new one in. Make sure not to damage the electrodes on the new mass air flow sensor. It's not even six inches from where you put in the air filter. Intake hose going to the intake manifold.

Hi ok so when i put my car in drive and push on the accelerator it will barely go...How come?? My book said Check choke plate but dont know where its located at.

The choke plate should be located on the side of the intake manifold, just under the air intake assembly. Most likely on the driver's side. Remove your air intake so you can see into the manifold and you will be able to tell if the choke plate is stuck by having an assistant press the accelerator (while the vehicle is off). While it is pressed, can you see into the manifold? If not, the choke plate may be stuck, blocking your view and the air from coming in.

Reguardless of how old the car is should make no difference as too how cold the AC is blowing. I have a 1997 Honda Civic with 215,000 miles on it and it still runs great, so yours is just barely broken in :) Maybe you need some refrigerant (R-134) added to make it colder? As to the power issue of the car, all air conditioners take appoximately 5-10 horsepower away from a cars engine when turned on. Have you ever had your spark plugs changed? That is usually cheap $10 - $20 if you do it yourself or probably $50 - $75 if you take it to a mechanic, and it makes a big difference in power. ( Make sure they use NGK spark plugs, that is what Honda uses) Also, on your other post about the timing belt which YES you do have a timing belt and not a chain, I have always been told to change the timing belt AND WATER PUMP at every 90,000 miles. The water pump should be changed because if it locks up it will break the new belt they just put on and then the damage I talk about later will happen to the engine. That should cost you around $250 - $400 depending on where you take it? preferably a Honda dealer because it may cost a little more but they know their stuff. It is important to change it because if it breaks it will cause your valves in the engine to get bent and then you will basically need a new motor at that point. Lastly, if you want to find the year of your car then look inside the drivers side door frame, there will be a VIN number and a manufacture date. Well I am sure this is more than you ever wanted to know about your car but there you go:)
