Default Has anyone else have this problem with their Honda?

Not all the time, but sometimes after I start my Honda and press the gas my RPM's drop and the car goes nowhere for about 2-4 seconds even if i floor the pedal. Once the RPM's do come back I normally don't have a problem the rest of the drive. That is until I start me car again. Lately it has been a 50-75% chance of doing this after I start it. I checked the car with a OBD II and it passed with no problems. What is wrong with my car?it is a 2003 Civic EX with around 55,000 miles. Bought it certified 1 year ago from a dealership.

Possibly a clog in your fuel pump.

I have never had this happen with my 2001 Accord. It might be a civic thing.

It's sounds to me like your idle air control valve. This can sometimes happen to Honda's with newer fuel injection systems

When mine was doing that, I found out at last that the fuel pump's sending unit was going out. I had my fuel pump & the sending unit (since they come together as a package) replaced and that solved the problem. It never happened again!IMPORTANT: I found out from the guy who replaced the fuel pump & sending unit to never use any fuel additives (which I did) and never let your tank go completely empty (which I did). HAHA! No wonder why it was doing that. d'ohhh! My fault and definitely not the car's fault.
