I have found that the cure for this problem is not always easy. Some people point to the O2 sensor but unless you have a check engine light on that points in that direction it has to be injector/intake related. On that old of a honda I would look at the air intake sensor. It is located across from the throttle cam on the intake. (The cam that the gas pedal cable attaches to) This can stick, I have gotten some WD40 to work into this and fix the problem. However, the sensor is riveted on to the throttle body. I have taken the rivets off with a file and then cleaned the sensor and put it back on with screws and had it work fine too. Otherwise the replacement of the throttle body is necessary.
Don't forget to check all of the vacuum hoses looking for connection, holes, cracks, etc.
