no pull?

for the last coupe of days my engine has been slacking, theres no significant pull when i step on it, it kinda jus eases its way to 60km/h, i cleaned the throttle body, and i'm not sure to check the condition of the throttle cable, other than that can any1 suggest anything that my be wrong?

HONDA = How Odd, No Damn Acceleration.

On a serious note, when was the last time the car was tuned up? ie. cap, rotor, plugs, air filter etc etc.

i just did the plugs last week, i have to put in the new wires i picked up yetserday along with the cap and rotor, the aire filter was done last summer. i still have to do the fuel filter though.

the change was a big changs, could those tune up parts casu THAT much of a difference?

i just got a d16y7 swap 2 weeks ago, i'm gna b royaly pissed if the guy gave me a crap *** engine, if the tune up doesent help, i think i might jus take it back, and tell him i want a b engine and i;ll pay the diff

thx for you input guys

try getting some seafoam if you've done that regular tune up stuff already... How about Fuel Filter did you change that as well? IS your idle regular? It could be a vacuum leak of some kind

Ummm, how much "pull" were you expecting from a 1.6 SOHC motor? If you were expecting to be pushed back into your seat on acceleration, well then, I'm sorry, but that ain't gonna happen.
