Seems the wrong thing to do ... replace distributor cap, why would you do that?
Take foot off the accelerator and it slows down.
What is wrong with that.

I had the same problem on a Rover. There was a leak in inlet manifold that was caussing the problem.
To verify, spray some sealant to temporarily seal the inlet manifold .and the eratic idling should disappear for some time.
If it does, you know there is leak in inlet manifold which you can take of and refit with a new gasket.

Might be your fuel pump itself.

Your shifter cables are most likely worn out or stretched out. Adjusting the cables moves the shifter arm a little bit. The turnbuckles for adjusting are inside the center console under the shifter arm. To get to them, you have to take out the center console. One cable controls side to side movement and the other controls front to back, don't adjust the wrong one on accident. 25311622-za4bqvjhdrn3arnyccyp5xaz-3-0.jpg

Honda engines are interference engines which means that valve damage will occur if the belt has broken or the correct procedure is not followed during belt replacement.
