Question about 1991 Honda Accord
My honda has been sputtering periodically lately for the past 2 weeks. now it is getting really bad that i don't want to chance it in driving it very far any more. when it's not in it's sputtering mode the engine is strong and accelerates without hesitation. Also there is no excessive smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe ever. it has 157,000 miles on it and never had any tuneup other then oil changes and spark plug changes. (i couldn't figure out how to remove the distributer cap and it costs nearly 200.00 so i said forget it)
Before performing and injector service which only a shop can perform pull the spark plug wires out of the holes. These engines are know to leak oil down the tube causing a short. If their dry check the plugs for cracks and proper gap. Replace if they have 60,000 miles or more. Also would be wise to replace the wires if their old. Pretty sure on these engines the valves are adjustable also. This is overlooked alot. This could cause poor fuel milage and wear out your catalytic converter sooner.
Now as far as the injector service all you can do is do a fuel sytem additive to the tank.
If the wires have oil on them they will need to be replace as will the plugs. You will also need a valve cover gasket set.
