Hi Im TOM AND Im here to assist you with your issue.There are two very common issues with this vehicle.First the exhaust valves are known to become excessively tight and cause this misfire issue and honestly these are known to burn up valves and the heads need replacing a simple compression test can show this .As log as timing is dead on these need to be checked for this issue.These are the next steps.If you could a good rating would be appreciated so I can credit for my help thanks.Im here if you need any further assistance.

HELLO TOM VEHICLE HAS 178000 MI ON THE CLOCK AND STILL HAS 170 --180 LBS OF COMPRESSION DOESNT SOUND LIKE A COMPRESSION ISSUE OR TIGHT VALVES VEHICLE REVS WELL IN NEUTRAL BUT TRY AND POWER BRAKE IT AND IT ONLY SEEMS TO RUN ON THANKS AGAIN DOM1026

Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 1 year ago.
Trust me check those valves first if not then its would be the torque converter locking up these would be the next steps.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

tom -- take your word for it I know the valves are not burned when you say tight exhust are you telling me that they are adjustable and that's wht is needed to repair ythis problem or is the stem of the valve to tight in the guide and causeing a binding condition also if its only an adjustment what are you setting the lash at thanks again for your help and patience im not sure about the torque converter issue ill worry about that later

Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 1 year ago.
Yes you need to adjust the valves to factory specs when cold this should fix your issue if there is an issue with the torque converter .Heres the specs .003 - 00.5in and exhaust .006 - .008in. Also here is the bulletin.
