My car then proceeds to sputter a bit when i am accelerating and i have to let off the gas for it to stop sputtering on me but then it keeps doing that everyone once in a while. I have taken it to honda and they just gave me a list of fluids i need replaced i.e. transmission and power steering. I had a seperate mechanic look at the codes and it said that the electronic acuator wasnt working properly. Im not sure if this is the case i need a second or even third opinion

My car has 184707 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Best practices automotive diagnosis for today’s cars, trucks and SUV’s begins by completing a diagnostic scan to determine if any error codes have been detected and stored in the ECU. Since you seem to have a warning light illuminating on your dash, this confirms that an error code exists and should be downloaded by a professional mechanic as they compete a check engine light inspection. This is what I’d recommend having one of our mobile mechanics complete; so you can be told precisely what is causing your Honda’s problems.
