Default 1999 Honda Accord V6 - Engine Stumble

I have a 1999 Accord V6, about 197,000 kms. The car was just tuned by
a independent garage who is a Honda specialist, who replaced the plugs
with NGK Platium, new ignition wires, rotor and distributor cap plus a
new air filter. They also cleaned the fuel system, changed the timimg
belt and water pump. Car ran great after the work. The Car runs
Castrol Syntec 5W30 since 20,000 kms and up to this point has been
very reliable.

So here is the problem, the engine starts to stumble and sputter when
I try to accelerate, once I back off it usually catches again. The
problem doesn't happen all of the time but has happened more recently
lately. The last occurance the check engine light came on and my local
Honda Dealer said that the code showed a problem with the fuel flow
voltage which did not explain the current problem. They could not see
any other problems. Once they cleared the code, the car ran normally.

Has anyone else experienced this problem or have any idea's of where
to look next. I drive on the highway and can't afford an unrealiable
car.

Could you PLEASE be a bit more vague?

Do NOT, whatever you do, post the actual alphanumeric error code!
Don't do it!

We might be able to help you then, and God forbid that should actually
happen!

-------------------------------

Put injector cleaner in it three - four times a year and please post the
numeric CODE you were given. Is your coolant reservoir filled to the MAX
mark? The owner's manual says you should do that whenever any work has
been performed on the cooling system. Low coolant (air in cooling
system) will screw up _just about everything_ on a Honda.

Curse that Psychic Wednesday! I keep forgetting and I continue to wear my
AFDB (http://www.zapatopi.net/afdb/) which makes me useless that day. Unlike
the other days, of course.

I've gone high-tech. I use titanium foil; it's very effective.
