Default Puttering problem...

I have a í90 Honda civic that is standard transmission. Whenver the
car is sitting idle, it makes a type of puttering and feels like its
giong to turn off. Sometimes when I put it in gear, the accelerator
does not catch for about a second and then it does. During this
second, it feels like its about to turn off. What is the problem
here?

Hi,
Are you saure all 4 plugs are firing proper? If it is bad ign. wire
or such you may see it with hood open in the dark. Will see sparks
flying around.

======================

Could be you just need to run a can of injector cleaner through it.
Topping up the coolant reservoir will often correct idle problems as
well because the computer depends on a high enough coolant level to
check the temp, and then is sets the timing and mixture.
