Q: My car sounds like it want to cut off when I'm in Drive stopped at a light. 2004 Honda Accord

asked by on

I had a real bad jerk. I thought it was my transmission so I took it to Honda. I found out it was my throttle so I had that re placed. So now when I stop at a light it sound like it want to cut off. Honda told me it may be coil pack. So I just had that replaced all 4. But it's still doing the same thing. I don't know what is the problem now

My car has 20000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there - first thing to do is check for problem codes, whether the Check Engine light is on or not. Most auto parts stores will do this for you for free on a "time-available" basis. There may be better guidance for diagnosis from additional problem code information. There are a number of issues that could cause rough idling and stalling - low fuel pressure, worn out plugs, dirty or malfunctioning idle air control valve, etc. I recommend a rough idle inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
