    Exclamation major issue..please help my accord! !

    I have a 95 accord lx, auto.
    For months now my rpms been dropping as i drive or idle, sounding like the car is losing power and ready to shut off.
    The car has been shutting off at random times when I am coasting or hit the brake (usually when I hit brake)
    Also, this usually happens when I am leaving a parking lot (dk if that is related? I drive for about ten min. or whatever and no problems, sometimes I even drive awhile and its fine, then when i go in a store or whatever and go out and start it back up it usually happens after that.)
    It will last 5min or so then stop and drive fine for awhile.

    Its really weird, almost like a short or injection problem idk..

    I have had the alternator checked, battery replaced, and checkd vacuum hoses for leaks.

    ANY suggestions at all would be really appretiated, thanks.

    ok i would start with new spark plugs/wires.. get new cap and rotor for the distributor.. see if your problem doesnt go away. if you still have these problems then its something more serious like your piston rings are going and car has low compression

    ok im gonna throw some things out you can check.. might be the map sensor or TPS sensor.. you could have an air leak by the intake manifold but im not sure if that wouls cause your engine to shut off.. the last thing i can tell you is to check your engines compression and do a leak down test

    sorry dunno how to help, OP. good luck tho. i do have an idle issue as well. whenever i get to a complete stop my idle drops down to 300 RPM or so, feels like its about to stall then goes back up to 500 RPM. idle is supposed to be at 700 RPM, but my lingers at 500. This idle issue also occurs when i put the car into Reverse, and when i go from Reverse to Drive.

    real annoying cuz i almost expect my car to stall, even tho it rarely ever does. ive cleaned out the IACV screen. ive tried adjusting the idle screw according to the Haynes manual(which i still couldnt get to 700). ive had a major tune up done with spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor etc.
