help:my prelude hates speed limits

i posted bout this before but think i have some more info on it now. it is the 2-3k rpm curse. hesitation/bogging in that range, it doesnt always do it, most of the time it seems like it doesnt do it wen i start it and let it run for a min before i drive, but then occasionaly it still does it. and when it isnt actin up if i shut if off for a min and start it again it almost always starts bein a b****. when i give it alot of ga it doesnt do it eithero2 sesor?egr valve? maybe bad cat? wat is most likely the problem

Re: help:my prelude hates speed limits

how many miles do you have?

if over 115k - clean the EGR valve and ports in the intake manifold

otherwise:
do a seafoam
check injectors
check spark plugs
inspect dizzy/ spark plug wires
have the fuel filter checked as a last resort.

Re: help:my prelude hates speed limits

I had this same type of problem on a Jetta I used to have. It turned out there was a crack in the ignition coil, and moisture was seeping in. Don't know if that will help, but it wouldn't hurt to check the coil anyway.
