Question about 1995 Honda Accord
Takes 3 to 4 attemps before it will start. rough eratic idle, 4000 rpm top, lugs on attemps to accelerate, compression from 130 to 150,. new plugs wires cap rotor, changed out computer. D4 shift indicator light flashes while in park. Computer not indicating any codes. checked balancer belt and timing belts, all markes appear to be right on. Engine may quite after a minute or two minutes. Idle runs from 300 to 1000 rpms
The first thing I would do is check the plugs again, just because you replaced them doesn't mean anything. You need to clean out the cylinders. I do this by taking a torch and firing it into each spark plug hole without the car running and once it stops spitting out fire, then replace the spark plugs. You should also see if the plugs are dirty and you can clean them with the torch too. The fire that will come out of the cylinder will probably put out the torch and this will have to be done multiple times until there is no gas left in the cylinder. Let me know how this goes when you try it and if you have any questions on this, please tell me. thanks.
If it still isn't running good, let me know and we can go from here.
Don't burn yourself when the flame shoots out, and also make sure you don't melt the spark plug wires when doing this.

Rough running and idle is normally down to the idle mixture and balance ... will give an erratic idle and progression which no amount of tuning will cure. ...
