Plugs, wires, dist cap/rotor, fuel filter, air filter, change all of the fluids for starters. "A slight jerking motion" is kind of a vague description. How many k's on the motor? What other service has been performed? Timing belt and water pump changed according to Honda's recommendations?

its the best way to dispribe it ..a slight jerking motion in low RPMS.. everything else is done cording to honda .. new timming belt at 100K and so forth ....
178K on the car which is alot i knwo .. but until last week it was running like a dream.. when driving in low RPMS its seems as tho it will slightly pull foward "jerk" and then it will let off causing a slight bobbing front to back and then repets its self.. im not sure really how to discribe it outher than
