Default My Honda has a ghost?

91 Honda Civic, automatic.















While idling or in 1st, 2nd... my car loses power. Dose not stall but revs go down and it feels like its slipped into N. I pump gas pedal to get it to react. Used to happen rarely but now happens every time I drive. HELP. Really scary when it happens on a left turn light, through interection !!















Not a real ghost, using the word as a medafore !!

Get your car checked by a mechanic. Don't jump to silly conclusions before doing practical ones.

You either have a fuel issue or an engine issue also may be a electronic component, Take it to a mechanic before driving it anymore.

start with the basics, spark plugs and wires, cap and rotor, change the transmission fluid.

check your vacuum hoses? it may be one is loose or worn out.















since you said it was when you shift-1st/2nd it may make since.















you can go to any auto parts store and they'll sell you about 2/3 feet of vacuum hose. for around 12 dollars...check your fluids too.
