many things can cause this. the most common problem would be that the timing is slightly off. (fixed sometimes by adjusting the distributor) it could also be a bad fuel pump (or clogged fuel filter) this would allow enough fuel to run the engine in park but not enough to run the engine under stress. clogged air filter could also cause this (not allowing enough air into the cylinders). I would change the air filter and fuel filter. then crank the vehicle and slowly turn the distributor (finding the best idle position) then see what happens. lastly replace the fuel pump.
It could need plugs, or something else. Plugs are designed to last 100,000 miles but no guarantee. Often times stalling is caused by a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve. I would have a mechanic check the valve and also see if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.
Am I correct in understanding that the truck will start and stall out and then keep running on the restart? If so I would be looking at the cold start circuit. Perhaps a loose wire or corrosion. Maybe the cold start valve is going bad. Hope this helps.
Sounds to me like a fuel filter.When was the last time it was changed?Because if a car starts and runs till you give it gas under load then dies it is a fuel problem.Start by chaging fuel filter and if problem still persists then next thing to check is fuel pump.
You may have some chunky contaminants in your fuel tank that are blocking the supply line,screen sock, or fuel filter. The screen sock is located inside the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump and filters the fuel going into the supply line for the fuel pump. Your fuel filter is typically mounted under the back seat behind the driver, but Honda tends to move things around a bit so you may want to verify that location with your local auto parts store. If you run the tank below 1/8 frequently, that tends to draw the chunks into the sock, line, and fuel filter.You may be able to just change the fuel filter and use a concentrated quality fuel Injection / system cleaner like Justice Brothers fuel injection cleaner . Avoid "cheap" cleaners - all they do is break up your money, not the contaminants in the system. Fuel injected systems run at a much higher pressure than carbureted systems, so be careful when releasing the pressure from the filter to avoid getting sprayed. If you don't have a manual, then I would suggest getting a Chiltons repair manual for the specific steps required in changing the filter - as well as the specific location, as it may also be under the vehicle in various places. Afterwards, try not to let your car get below 1/4 tank to keep this from happening in the future, and use a can of Injection cleaner about every 10th tank fill. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
Could be as something as simple as a plugged fuel filter to spark plugs to a sensor going bad. Could also just be a bad tank of gas. You could try running some fuel injection cleaner in the gas tank and maybe replace the fuel filter. Also clean or replace you air filter. And the spark plug electrodes might be worn out and need replacement. Just trying to give you some simple maintenence ideas that do not break the bank and may fix your problem. There are many variables that can cause stalling. You might need to have a mechanic hook it up to a diagnostic computer and start the car. When it is stalling they will be able to see exactly what the cause for the stalling is and fix it.
