    If you have a vacum guage I would like to know what the reading of vacum is at the intake manifold as close to the cylinder head as possible like the vacum hose that goes to the brake booster....

Could also be a dirty or clogged idle air control valve - try a Seafoam treatment (it's available at the auto parts stores - use about half a coffee cup worth through a vacuum line into the manifold, per the directions on the can). Easy treatment and it can work wonders for the way your car runs.

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.

1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up performed Changed spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor wheel along with all spark plug wires, changed fuel filter, air filter, spent $150 on fuel injector...

Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

Crank and start but wont stay on

bad ignition,air flow sensor that keeps leaning out the mix and it stalls,bad iac idle control motor,start with a good tune up.cap rotor,wires plugs air filter and clean the throttle body.some honda cars have bad egr valves and the intake manifold has to come apart because it is plugged up inside with carbon.

Are you sure that the plug wires are in the right order? Fuel filter, is there water in the fuel? Is the air filter and air intake clean and clear?
