misfiring problems

i need to get this fixed soon!! its bothering the **** out of me! ok heres the deal:
my prelude started misfiring about a month and a half ago and i dealed with it for awhile then one day when i was driving it misfired at about 3000 rpms and the car shut off and i lost my power steering. i had to turn it back on then i went goin and it was fine.. i had one of my buddies check it out and he pulled the spark plug wires and put them back on and checked the plugs and put them back on and said everything was fine. it ran fine for about 2 weeks then today it started misfiring bad. i dont know if this has anything to do with it but last night my car wouldnt start for some reason so we had to jump start it. i think the misfiring is caused by something electrical but the plugs and wires have been checked and theyre fine. can someone please help me!

Re: misfiring problems

Any cel codes?

Maybe egr or egr ports are clogged. Maybe wiresets need to be replaced, sparkles have proper gap? Download the prelude manual and do the diagnostics for misfire.
