84 crx starts fine and idles fine in park and neutral, but dies immediatly when shifted to drive or reverse. Will run very roughly if pumping accelerator. What's going on?


You might want to check the engine for a vacume leak.Once the rpm's drop it may have a big enough vacume leak to not keep it running under a load.

My 85 did the same thing many years ago, ity was a vacuum box on the left side of the motor-I think- check out one of the honda forums...that's where I found it when I had my problems.

1990 crx base model honda civic want start


I would suggest an ignition module. If it is a rough idle at startup I would check the throttle position sensor. You can check that by starting the car and unplugging the TPS. If the car runs differently then chances are it is working fine.
