I have a 90 accord lx/dx.I replaced fuel filter, air filter and now the car won't stay running and once it does start after running it about 2 blocks if you let off the accelerator it putters like...

Have your engine scoped out by a reputable service shop. Was it running better before you replaced those items? Have you done a tune up lately? Did you buy bad gas? Are your fuel injectors clean? Is the fuel pump going out on you? Are your spark plugs and spark plug wires good? Are their any sensors that may need replacing? I have a 1990 Honda Accord and the car just wants to keep taking my money. It needs too much love to keep any more.

No start

it could be many things my suggestion is if check engine light comes on retrieve the code from ecu either buy following instructions in troubleshooting section of repair manual ex:haynes or chiltons or purchasing OBDI scanner from local parts store then moving on from there
first your mechanical timing is it on the money? using timing light and repair manual to check
second faulty crankcase or cam shaft positioning sensor
timing belt needs replacement
bad grounding system
weak voltage system ex:battery
faulty ecu ignition circuit or ecu malfunction
faulty map sensor
faulty ignition spark are you getting it correctly? or enough of it ether is lighter and far more volatile then fuel
faulty evap system ex: purge valve or charcoal cannister, EGR system
