Please Google search STANDARD part# CP496 canister purge control solenoid. This is to help you see what part you are looking for. The purge valve is located at the drivers side strut tower. Inside the engine compartment. Pop the hood, and look for the large corrugated rubber duct that sits between the TAC (throttle body) and the engine air filter housing. Behind the rubber duct, clipped off the side of the drivers side strut tower. You will see the purge valve or solenoid. Usually this part is tested with by a technician. He or she will use a scan-tool, vacuum testing tool and EVAP smoke machine. Doesn't sound like you will have any of that. If you want to try testing the solenoid only. You must use care with the next steps if you decide to use the car battery. If mistakes are made you could be hurt, burned, injured or ruin the purge valve you are trying to test. I advice first trying a new 9V battery instead. The valve will need to be completely removed from the car. The battery, two pieces of wire, a foot long piece of 3/16 rubber hose and said valve will be placed on your work area. Attach the hose to one of the vacuum ports and gently suck. If you are met with resistance stop and setup for the electrical test. You need to momentarily connect the 9V battery to the two electrical pins of the valve. The valve is normally closed when denergized. After you connect both wires to the valve pins. Hold one wire onto one battery terminal and with the other. Quickly tap and release the other wire to the other battery terminal. Do you hear it click? If not, double check the connections. You can also double check by once again gently sucking on the vacuum hose while you tap the terminal. If suction resistance remains the valve is bad. If air flows the valve could be good. This is all I can do to help. Honestly the best way for this system to be tested is by a trained technician. I do hope this helps. Good luck.

This is called sudden unintentional acceleration and it will get the attention of the NTSB NHTSA and the OEM. The bad thing is you are out of warranty and would have to pay for anything they do at the dealership to find it

I promise this works 'cause I used it:

Put the key in the ignition, move the intermittent wiper control to the middle possition and then turn the key on.

just to clarify it's the ring that controlls the intermittent wiper speed and not the int / low/ high switch.

What this does is it resets the multiplex unit that controlls the accessories such as the power door locks. This problem usually happens once the battery has been removed or disconnected and reconnected. Every once in a while the multiplex systems lock up. Especially on the 98s. That's how you wake em up.

First, try rocking your machine back and forth as you try to shift it; especially if it has been stopped in an incline. Next, do take an extra battery along with you as your battery may be starting to fail and may not be able to deliver enough current to complete the shift

It may be as simple as your oil condition or oil level. If you have poor oil in your engine the VTEC system will not operate properly and when RPMs reach 2800 or so it will buck. If everything checks okay with the oil have the code checked for your check engine light/VSA light.
