loulou, you have me stumped. There are 2 guys here that might be able to help you, they are really good. One is Tom Demyan, and the other is tennisshoes. I would encourage you to PM them and see what they say. I would also love to know what the fix ends up being.

You might try pulling the codes, google how to read Honda obd1 codes. Also, check out a video on how to test the mass air flow sensor.

It has no codes I will check the maf sensor see what happens
