Well it sounds like your iacv valve (idle air control valve) is going bad but to be sure check your tps sensor on the throttle body and or any vaccum lines good luck....

My 95 Honda Civic starts fine and idles ok, but when I get ready to go the car almost dies out, then goes really slow like it is getting no gas. But after a few feet the car takes off like normal. what is...


This sounds like a bad TPS (trottle position sensor). When you step on the accelerator the TPS tells the computer you want to accelerate, and the computer then increases the fuel duration of the injectors. With out that signal the computer is getting additional info from the increased airflow into the engine, so it then increases the fuel to the engine, but you are getting a hesitation, due to the delay in the increase of fuel to the engine. Hope this helps and good luck :O)
