You will want to check the fuel pressure to see if it is too low. Also that the filter is not restricting the flow of fuel.


Then if the fuel pressure and flow are good, the exhaust may be a little bit restricted. You can have a back pressure test done on it at most exhaust shops to see if the cat is clogged.



If they are both ok, then you will want to take a sample of the fuel to be sure that it’s not contaminated.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It ran just fine that's all the sudden started also when we were going down the highway when I hit 3000 RPMs or so it would kind of sputter
Expert:  Super mechanic replied 10 months ago.

I see, thanks.

What is the fuel pressure?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
How do you check the fuel pressure on 2001 Honda Accord 2.3 it doesn't have a Schrader valve do you pull the fuel line off the fuel regulator and check it from there
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the RPMS fluctuates when holding the accelerator steady also
Expert:  Super mechanic replied 10 months ago.

Use a wrench to remove the fuel pulsation damper from its fitting, then attach the fuel pressure gauge.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Is that the same as a fuel pressure regulator. You take the two bolts holding it on the fuel rail then you check the back of it?
Expert:  Super mechanic replied 10 months ago.

No, that is on the fuel rail, near the regulator. On the ones that didn't use a damper you tee into the rail where the fuel line comes in.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Okay I took that and cap off that you talking about and there's a male threads coming out do I screw a fitting on that and then crank the engine
Expert:  Super mechanic replied 10 months ago.

That is all in the instructions, thanks.
