Im guessing that its an early model with carbs these may need a good clean you may have water or dirt in your fuel the air filter may need replacing and the spark plugs and leads. from memory its a bit of a mission removing the carbs as i remember it is easier if the air box is removed first keep all parts seperate when striping the carbs if your not confident do them one at a time so you can use the next one as a reference if you get confused as to where the parts go use carbretta cleaner and compressed air to clean with dont use wire to clean the holes in the jets. clean the outside first before you remove the float bowls and use a good screwdriver the philips head screws have a tendancy to be difficult and and its not hard to chew the centre out of the screw if this happens use a centre punch and hammer punch the head of the screw to loosen it an impact driver should undoo tight screws that are not damaged

Sometimes it seems that it dont get petrol but their are enought in tank it misses and when i rev it shes better for some distance then do it again

When you say it seems like it doesn't get petrol are you meaning that it starves under hard load / acceleration? If so, the fuel filter is the first place I'd look.

92 Honda Accord runs and starts fine I was great but when you accelerate starving for fuel has a new fuel pump new fuel filter fuel injectors don't know what the problem is help me

attach fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure during acceleration. fuel pressure should be the same as when vehicle is idling. if fuel pressure is good i would check ignition timing of your car. if timing is retarded it will affect acceleration and feel like its sluggish too.

Sluggish Acceleration

A high mileage vehicle usually suffers from any number of maintenance related deficiencies. I would address the Fuel filter maintenance first. It's the cheapest and easiest of the solutions. Lack of fuel pressure under higher demand due to acceleration will result in a sluggish engine. The engine would idle fine and even run fine at high speed but would be sluggish under acceleration. Other more complecated solutions would be worn Ignition coils, Worn spark plugs, Timing belt stretched or jumped timing and the most expensive would be loss of compression in the cyllinders.

Sluggish acceleration, almost fells like its starving or chocking

It seems like the EGR valve or the MAF ( Mass air flow sensor) The EGR is mounted near the air cleaning system. Have it scanned for a trouble code for free at an auto parts store.
