Icon9 1997 prelude dies suddenly

Hi, I know I'm not supposed to be posting about an idle problem. I had the irratic idle problem and fixed it via fitv. So on to the next problem and I don't know if this falls under the final idle thread or not. The lude starts with no problem but dies if I'm not on the. throttle will not stay alive without my help at all. This was going on during my irratic idle as well... it just wouldn't die until the idle tried to level out. I had my head worked on valves replaced new timing belt... because I broke mine any help would be great and trust me I do plenty of research online this is my last resort. Thanks yall

Re: 1997 prelude dies suddenly

I'm think in it might be my cat clogged up.. I don't drive the lude its been sitting around but every week I crank her up just to make sure she's alive. It sounds great when I have my foot on the throttle doin a self idle.. but before I stopped driving her she overheated once or twice which had never happened before and I'd get an occasional backfire. How do I un clog the cat? I also just replaced my tps because of cell code.
