Question about 1998 Honda Accord
98 Accord / 85,000 miles / automatic / 4 cyl.
When driving slowly (35 mph or so) and I am barely on the accelerator trying to maintain the slow speed, the car will sometimes stutter, almost like it can't decide which gear to stay in.
I really can't tell if its the engine or the transmission that causes it.
- Happens when on a level road (not uphill or downhill)
- When the engine is warm
- Sometimes is worse than others, but don't see a consistency
Our 97 CRV does the same thing. ( 175,000 miles / automatic )
YOU CAN TEST IT WITH A OHM"s meter or a multi meter one is your ground wire the other two send the signal to your computer.what you are looking for is when you rotate the throttle do it as slow as possible and as steady.If the reading jumps alot when you slowly rotate the throttle then it is a bad tps.let me know what the outcome is.Thank you for using fixya
