if the problem started after the repair then you will need to check the intake and associated parts to see if there is a slight vacuum leak causing this issue. Also you said you replaced the plugs, I'm hoping you used Honda genuine parts. these cars seem to get a finicky when you use other makers plugs.

I used NGK LASER IRIDIUM PREMIUM SPARK PLUGS


 

Expert:  HONDASERVICE7791 replied 1 year ago.
ok that should be fine. recheck the intake there has to be a vacuum leak there causing your codes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


OK,BUT PLS IS IT D SOMETHING I CAN DO OR I HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A SHOP TO CHECK FOR ME AND HOW MUCH DO THINK IT CAN COST TO DO?


PLS WHAT ABOUT ABS AND TCS?


 

Expert:  HONDASERVICE7791 replied 1 year ago.

depending on who performed the job to begin with, i would say bring it back to whomever did the work. They should fix it for no charge. If you have to take it to another shop, i could not guess as to what it would cost to repair but if it is a different place they will at least charge you some diagnostic time. probably 1 hour time to start based on what their hourly shop rate is.

 

the abs/tcs light has to be checked for codes. it could be several things. with out the code it would be hard to guess. if you get the codes you can repost them here and i can help you further
