I had my timing belt replace on my 97 prelude, now my car won't pass 3,000 rpm. I double checked the timing with a timing gun everything seems to be in ok with the timing. Maybe I don't know what I am doing with the timing gun or something else is wrong.
Do you

I am assuming when you ran the timing light that you disabled the computer? That must be done with a jumper wire. Then set the timing. This is a step the mechanic should have completed for you. Does it idle and run smooth?

The idle is smooth, but on the second time I turn the ignition, the first time I start the ignition the idle drops to zero and the car dies, on the second turn of the ignition the car starts right up. This happens 100 percent of the time. Btw the belt is right on. I doubled check that also.

Ps. Thanks to everybody who responded, every advice is a positive advice.

After the second attempt and it is running is everything fine and running down the road nice?

Is this 1st no go 2nd go happen no matter how little time between starts? Say you had it running fine and warm then turned it off. If you hit the starter right after that would it die or run?
