92 Accord slow acceleration

there's a 2 to 3 sec delay from idle to 2500rpm when i hit accelerator. plugs ok, fuel pump/injectors/filter ok, wires/cap/rotor ok, timing seems to be ok. from an idle stop in drive, it takes a long time to get to ~2500rpm then it jerks a little, then runs fine the rest of the rpm spectrum. it does the same thing in park. during the 2 to 3 sec delay it sounds like it's not getting any fuel but lots of air or timing is not advancing fast enough to keep up with the position of the throttle. what's really weird is that it only does it at lower rpms. any ideas? thank you.

Check your mass air flow sensor. Its either that or youve just got a weak engine.

i think i got a good idea why the car its slow....its shit. Its got no power, no displacement and overall is a granny car. Cars like that are not meant to go fast. They are designed to carry little people around cities, not the quater mile. Get a real car...at least 6 cylinders....in a V.

Would you call the old Ford 255 4.2L V8 a 'real' engine? Because it makes less power stock than his Honda 132 2.2L I4.

So you're saying that the Supra TT isn't a real car......... it rocks

Some people don't have enough money to pay for a V8 car, or enough money to pay for its poor gas mileage.

If all you're gonna do is bad mouth smart, economic, durable Japanese cars, then you might want to try the DOMESTIC section of this forum.

Are you saying that an R34 Skyline or a Supra RZ are crap? Cars don't need to have displacement to go fast or at least feel fast.

What the problem is, is that your clutch is slipping and you need to replace it. Yould have to probobly replace the clutch and pressure plate and depending on how bad it realy is you might have to replace the throw out bearing and the fly wheel.

Or if its an auto have your tranny fluid checked.Sometimes low fluid pressure will delay shifts. .. remember more air more power.

Lets not forget the ho4's in the Porsches. Or we could go a different route with the flaming...semi's and medium duty trucks put out more torque and hp than most v8's...with i6's or i8's, go figure.

^^Even more power than quite a few V12s, for that matter.

I have had a similar problem with my 94 Accord EX. Not so much the lack of response, but the sudden "jerks" with no change in throttle position. It'll get to about 2500 rpm too and suddenly accelerate faster. As it isn't really a problem for me I've never worried about it.

Back on topic, check the tranny, sounds like the o/d may be acting up (popping on and off).
