My 1993 Honda Accord is driving fine and then all of a sudden it starts to lose power and I have to press hard on the gas and she misfires and for a while it will stay line that and then go away. It first started when I was going on a mountain. Now it will do it on straight ground. I have a new fuel filter and new wires and air filter. The plugs look clean. Help me please :-)

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Gail Dunn, Owner at Women's Automotive Connection Robert You did not say how many miles on the Accord. However, just because the plugs look clean, does not mean they are performing properly. If they have never been changed, I would suggest you do that. Their life span is only 80-100,00 miles.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Like you said, it has a misfire. Might need a tune up or catalyst.
