Question about 1998 Honda Accord
The symptoms you describe are consistent with a mass airflow problems. Take note that the 1998/2002 Accords do not have a MAF (mass airflow sensor) but rather, a MAP sensor. Take this unit out and clean it with electrical circuit spray cleaner. Its best NOT to wipe the sensor dry after cleaning, because the liquid will evaporate by itself, and you will reduce the possibility of damaging the delicate printed circuits.
After cleaning and reinstalling, disconnect the negative terminal of the battery, so that the computer (ECM) resets itself and gathers the new readings from the sensor to adjust the mixture. IF the sensor has failed, and need to be replaced, the check engine light should be on.
