    I have a 95 Honda Civic EX that has developed a problem.

    The car frequently (not always) loses power in the 2000-3200 RPM range
    and drives like a golf cart. At higher than 3200 RPM power comes
    surging back. Its an AT but at times I have to manually force it down
    to 2nd or 1st to keep the revs high. This happens only when the engine
    has warmed up.

    I got a suggestion that the distributor may be the problem so I took a
    look at it to find the part number. Strangely enough it reads TD-41U.
    Shouldn't a civic EX with a 1590 CC engine have a TD-42U?

    I still need to take the car to a shop and get the mechanic's opinion
    on the issue but I find the wrong part number a bit unsettling. Anyone
    have any idea what is the difference between TD-41U and TD-42U?

    Also if someone has faced a similar problem, please let me know.
