Question 93 Accord LX Starting/Choking Issues

This afternoon after driving for 15 minutes, I returned to my car to find that I needed to turn it over a few times before it started. I recently bought it (8 months ago) and haven't done much to it, except an oil change.

When I depressed the clutch and turned the key, everything sounded good but just didn't start. I pumped the gas a few times while turning the key, but no joy. Luckily after 4-6 attempts it started up after sputtering and almost stalling.

I drove very carefully and noticed a sputtering/choking sound whenever I shifted. Felt like I would stall out if I hadn't depressed the clutch. A few minutes later, as I rounded a turn and went into 2nd, I heard a pop in the undercarraige and continued to drive. I haven't heard another pop since.

I went to a local hobby shop thinking I had fuel issues, and since I hadn't done anything to the car since I purchased it, I figured changing out the fuel filter would be a good start. No luck. Still having the same problems.

I took some more time with the car and am noticing that as I slowly release the clutch I'm no longer getting any forward momentum. Like all manual cars, there is that sweet spot on the clutch that gives you a boost...not there anymore.

Other things that I'm thinking may be the problem: Timing belt, bad fuel, plugs, etc.. . I really have no clue.

Can I get anyone else's opinion?

It's a 1993 Honda Accord LX. 190,000 miles
