higher mileage honda's are prone to plug wire failure,remove the plug wires from the spark plugs and check them for carbon tracks,or holes burnt through the wires.if your brave pull the wires up one at a time while the car is running and see if a spark is coming out of the plug wire to ground,do not touch or lean on the car while doing this or you will get a 50000 volt jolt you wont soon forget.

Check your fuel pump and fuel pump relay if working properly.

well need symptoms of motor operation but i can guess that its the idle air control valve which all you have to do is clean it (usually) but for it to be this whenever you are sitting still motor will rev up and down and when you drive try to gas it and if it smoothes out when you accelerate hard thats the problem
