Engine Performance problem
1993 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 210000 miles
It Idles ok and this problem only happens when the engine is at a normal operating temp.
I can gently pump the case and see the tach stutter and hear it in the exhaust. I can hear this when I drive. But If I floor it. It goes fine.
No CE light.
22.8 mpg average
plugs, wires, cap, rotor
Old plugs were very clean and looked almost new. Burned even and no oil or gas on them. Never seen old plugs this clean. Clearly they had wear but they were fine otherwise.
The Pickup in the Dist went sometime ago. So We got a new coil first. Then A junk Dist.
About 5 months ago it started to stutter just a bit. Then got worse over time. Now its really bad and it miss's so bad You would swear its the exhaust. But the Car moves like a bat outta hell when you floor it.
To me this is rather like crossfire with bad wires or cracked plugs. So I tuned it and it diddnt help. Its not a gas issue near as I can tell. I tryed several brands or gas and grades and many cleaners and dry gas's over the last 5 months. Never even touched the problem. But im guessing I made the plugs pink for a while.
Looked for a vacuam Leak. No go. Looks tight.
I have been working on this for sometime and im getting agravated and close to inspection time. I hope you can help :)
Dont let my email worry you. It is unique :)
