you will need to get the car scan for codes , what you have is a engine misfire condition , this is most likely cause by a bad ignition coil pack or bad spark plugs . but there are 6 of each on the engine so you need the code to tell the location of the bad coil . so get the car scan for code and replace the coil pack for the indicated cylinder or cylinders .

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
