bogging out on highway and hills

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by ihateicecream, Apr 4, 2007.

  1. My carbed, auto, 88 accord is starting fine but sticking at 2000 rpm
    until its warm, then it wants to stall out when in drive. Also when i
    am on the highway I must lightly feather the throttle otherwise it
    surges and boggs and dies. This also occurs when going up hills in any
    gear. otherwise on the flat and under 3rd gear it rips around quite
    what is going on?

    Have you checked everything under the hood, especially the coolant
    reservoir? How long have you had it, what's the mileage?

  3. Had a Toy truck doing this a few years ago and a 240SX. too.

    When did you last replace the fuel filters? (Don't forget the one behind
    the tire!)

    Carbs, y'know, not to mention distributors. I had the 87, it still
    had a distributor, didn't it? I forget. I dumped the 87 about eight
    years ago, it showed signs of everything going blooie, around 130k
    miles. I hope you keep this old one as a hobby.
