So I recently bought a 2002 Accord, 6 cylinder, for a good deal.
It ran great for about 2 weeks. Then I noticed there was a short delay upon pushing the gas pedal to acceleration.
Eventually that delay turned into something more insidious lol.
I push the gas, it would jump, like you were repeatedly pushing gas and brake within fractions of a second of each other, some people might even get whiplash.
It’s mainly when the car is cold, but not always. You really never know when this will happen. Always involves accelerating though.
I looked into it a little more and noticed the resonator box behind the wheel well was wrapped in foil Hvac tape. No sure if that would cause this though? Maybe bad fuel to air mix?
Any ideas appreciated!!
