I just got a 1983 Prelude to drive over winter. I am having some
problems getting the thing to run properly. I'll start it up and it'll
idle great for the longest time. As soon as I drive it for a few
minutes it will start to struggle and the engine will die as soon as I
push in the clutch. I can start it back up after it dies if I push
slightly on the gas but as soon as I take my foot off of the gas it
dies. If I leave it sit for maybe 15 minutes it'll start up and idle
fine until I drive it again. I can't seem to figure out what the
problem is. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filters, air filter,
and plugs. I also cleaned up the EGR valve and put in a new EGR valve
gasket. I tested the EGR valve and doesn't leak and the diaphram open
and closes normally. I checked for vacuum leaks and everything looks
good. I replaced a couple of bad vacuum hoses (the 2 big ones on the
intake manifold). What other things could I check?
