Hey everyone. The car is a 1980 Honda Accord LX hatchback 1.8 5-speed
i recently just bought this car last week. Today i decided to do the oil change and clean out the stock carb. Once oil change was completely and carb was good i started her up and she still somewhat ran the same but she ran fine.
I then replaced the spark plugs and wires. Just the wires not the distributor cap cause they didnt have it in stock anywhere. So once i replaced the spark plugs with new ones correctly gapped at 0.044 and replaced the spark plug wires and the coil wire. The car will start but it sounds like its misfiring. It doesnt idle at all. Once the gas pedal is released it drops to idle speed and within seconds begins to die and shuts off.
I drove it around and the car seems to be hesitating or misfiring under load. It also will shut of if you come to a stop and let it idle.
I replaced the plugs and wires with the old set and this continues to happen. I am not sure of what to do or where to go from here.
any ideas or help i would greatly appreciate it as i am new to these cars.
