    oo sir, most probably fuel system. a few months ago, i hthought something bad happened to my faithful old Civic. initially i panicked 'cause the throttle seem to be unruly. gusto laging mabilis! :D anyways, i referred to the service manual, and thought that the ecu have gone bad (which is i felt bad since i thought if the ecu is busted, then i should have gotten a ecu upgrade). the culprit: bad throttle body.

    i have it cleaned with Honda. Voila, it runs as smooth as ever.

    still i felt bad about that ecu upgrade. i thought i would a new one. :D

    *ian_rex: thanks! pwede naman mag-upgrade ECU kahit di pa sira di ba? idahilan mo na lang na 'preventive measure' sa department of budget, kung meron man...hehehe

    Hmm the fact that it occurs often pag nakaincline ka makes me think na fuel filter talaga, baka blocked na yung filter and kung nakaangle yung car di na nakakadaan yung fuel sa ibang areas ng filter.

    I'd change this asap before it creates more havoc my friend.

    Update lang guys. I was able to have my fuel filter changed last Saturday. Sabi nung mechanic, medyo barado na nga raw. After changing, i observed the car and mukhang ok naman sya so far. I braved the same incline yesterday in Boni(at least pag Sunday konti lang umaakyat). So far, di na naman ako namatayan ng engine. Will observe the car for the next few days. Hopefully, yon na nga ang problema and not the fuel pump.

    Thanks again to everyone!

    Sa sentra namin ganyan din dati, biglang mamamatay engine, tapos hirap mag start. Pag-umandar na dapat di bababa sa 1000rpm or else patay ulit. Pinalitan ung fuel filter ganun pa din. Un pala sira na distributor

    No recurring problem so far. I think it really is the fuel filter.
