Engine Performance problem
1998 Honda CRV 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 147442 miles
Good Day. I have a 1998 Honda CRV 4WD and I recently had the timing belt/ water pump/ spark plugs/ distributor cap and rotor along with the cable changed. After I received the car back from the mechanic the engine laaaggggeeeedddd in performance. The pickup was soooooo sloooooow. So I went back to the mechanic and he had to take off valve cover and adjust the timing on the engine. After the adjustment was made to the engine it felt normal so I drove the car from NYC to Florida and during the drive the engine developed a sputtering or misfiring. The sputtering or misfiring happens at any speed and also even if the engine is cold or hot. The check engine light is on and I know that is because of the Cat converter not working correctly. Has anyone ever had a sputtering or misfiring problem with their car after doing such a tune up or do I have a bad mechanic? All assistance would sincerely be appreciated.
