Most likely the egr ports are clogged or a faulty o2 sensor or failing cat.Heres the egr bulletin.Also check the distributer ,wires ,coil and igniter.

i'm not sure if sputtering or bucking is the right way to describe...but i can feel it shake on my feet when it does it...also..messes with the way it shifts...which drove me to think it was the trans...Is it ok to drive like this until i get it checked!?
Mechanic for Honda: HondaPlatinum, A Technician replied 8 years ago
As long as the transmission is not slipping or banging into gear it should be ok until you have it checked. Most common if the d4 light is flashing or it does no up shift into higher gears is the transmission computer is failing . The other issue is it would be internal in the transmission and it would need to be replaced . These are the next steps.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
