Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.


Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

Have you replaced the fuel filter, if it is partially blocked it will cause surging. Or the air sensor down by the air filter is a very fine wire that gives incorrect readings if dirty ( normally from running a pod filter) . You can buy a spray that you spray in the intake with the engine running to clean it. Hope this works cheers :)
