    New here

    Hey guys just bought my first honda (88 accord lxi hatch) with a hole the size of my fist in the block lol. So I swapped it with a junkyard replacement. Have had a couple of issues solved by googling a couple of your threads. I dont know much about hondas because I've been a big mustang guy lol.

    Thanks guys, I have a couple of questions, the car randomly misses up until 3000 rpm and only at half throttle or better will it quit, and been looking for springs or coilovers and nothing but 88 up civic stuff... I found the wheels I want but I want to get it sitting down a bit lol

    Clean it and if that doesn't work, replace it.
