    My Honda Civic year 2000 is behaving very strangely. Yesterday i bought
    tank of gas and I parked it. I drove it like 3hrs later and it started run
    rough and lose acceleration, shakes when i accelerate and then the "check
    engine light" then came on. I took it back home and left it till today, and
    then I started it and drive for about 20 miles and it still doing the same
    thing. what should I do.

    Since it only did it after the tank of fuel(I'm assuming) I would say
    you got a bad dose of gasoline. If a bottle of HEET doesn't fix it,
    assuming there's water in the tank, you may have to drop the tank. It
    could be trash, also. Either way, it'd be a real good idea to replace
    the fuel filter AFTER you get the bad fuel out of the tank.

    YOu need the code read (for free, write it down) and meantime you should
    put a bottle of gas line antifreeze in the tank to absorb some of the
    moisture that's getting trapped in your fuel filter. You didn't mention
    if you're in a cold climate. Same answer.

    A tank of Gasohol next time might help clear it up too.

    If you ask the kid behind the counter at auto-zone nicely, they’ll pull
    the code for you. Just remember to write it down.
