low idle and sounds like sputtering plz help

ok so today when i started up my prelude everything was fine i let it warm up. no problem. as i was driving it, still no prob, i get to a stoplight and stop no problem but when i go to accelerate and take my foot off the cluth it sounds all sputtery and clogged, lagging alot it runs but horribly. as i kept driving it a weird smell got in the car it smelled like... wel idk but all i know it was bad its not my timing (i dont think) it aint my spaark plugs or any of that idk what it if it has a really low idle too





i figured a video would help sorry for all the wind

Re: low idle and sounds like sputtering plz help

i'd get your fuel pressure tested, make sure that its up to spec, your plugs could look ok right now but they may not be getting enough fuel or any at all

Re: low idle and sounds like sputtering plz help

It wasn't those. It ended up being that my spark plug broke inside my engine so I have one part of it out. The other part, I hope, is just sitting on top of the piston and not scrtaching my cylinder wall. Thnks to everyone for the suggestions though on Prelude Pow3r they didn't say anything but I mean it happns
