When it's in neutral and you hit the gas, does the rpm rise slowly? And if you try to give it too much throttle does it choke and try to die? It sounds like your catalytic converter is partially plugged, or there is some other exhaust restriction. If the check engine light is on, there may be relevant diagnostic codes available, some of the auto parts chains used to read the codes for you for free, but I'm not certain that is still the case.

My car will not drive when put into gear


Sounds like your having transmission problems. Before this happened, had you notice any other things that felt wrong while driving such as: car not picking up speed as fast? Problem changing gears? A jerking like motion? Kinda hesitating or stalling whenever it does go into gear?

My honda accord 94 jerks when i take off slow


there are many possible problems here. one of them is the throttle position sensor. it is nothing more than a volume switch on a cheap radio. it moves voltage from 0 to 5 v and tells the computer what you want the engine to do. When they fail usually one part of the range quits working which would produce the effect you described As i said this is just one of the possible problems but one you should rule out. Checking it is done by locating the sensor and checking output with a volt meter. maybe go to local autoparts store and read why check engine light is on It should tell you which sensor is bad if that is the problem

2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking


Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
