I have a 1997 Honda CRV. 130,000 K. NO check engine light.
The car starts and runs fine but after 3 to 5 miles, it sputters and cuts out but doesn’t stall.
It does this when cold or hot. I can drive it for 15 miles stop and turn it off and it will act up again within 3 to 5 miles. It will continue like this for 1 to3 minutes.
Stepping on the gas while it is doing this seems like it boughs out no spark or fuel.
I changed spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil, fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel line, rear oxygen sensor.
Checked the vacuum it reads in the green and steady with no leaks. Adjusted the valves they were in specs.
I had the injectors professionally cleaned. PVC valve replaced.
My wife has a 1999 Honda CRV. I switched the ignition module, fuel pressure regulator, throttle body, idle air control valve and the car still acts up. It’s been this way for almost a year.
