View Full Version : Bogging Problem
06-23-2009, 11:07 PM
ok i am not sure when it started but it has been happening recently. When ever i get my car up to 60-70 and try to hold it at a steady speed the car seems like it is bogging, and it slows down alittle the only way for my to get rid of the bogging is to speed up. now i am not really sure what could be causing this.
Could it be- Fuel filter, fuel pump, spark plugs?
I have a full tank of gas so i know i am not short on gas.
The car is a Acura Integra Ls 1995. b18b1.
Anyone one have any experiences with changing the fuel filters?

It could very well be a fuel filter. They are not hard to change at all. You just need a few wrenches and a handfull of rags to stop gas from spilling all over and to plug the to-filter fuel line. Just make sure the car is completely off!!!
BTW, when was the last time the filter was replaced? if ever?

spark plug wires and spark plug. reason why i know because my turbo never works after 5500rpm..studders but after i change those it ran perfect. i dont think it's the filter. had my oem one for 9 years now

thanks for info you two.
the filter has never been changed.
i think i will just get new plugs cause i know the wires are brand new. got any recommendations on plugs?

You can check the filter easy enough.
Unhook the hose on the engine side of the filter, get someone to hold a rag around it, turn the car on (don't start).
If it comes out with a good amount of force, you're prolly alright.
If it trickles, get a new filter.

bosch +2 is a good choice. i think they are around 25$ i have used them in every car i have had and they are amazing.

i got bosch platinum

i got autolite iridium i think thats how its spelt. but i didnt get new wires cause mine are pretty much brand new ngk.
ok i thought the problem was fixed but when i got out on the highway and had it up to 70 steady it started to bog again :(
i think i might as well change the fuel filter since it has never been changed before. could it be the fuel pump?

I cant believe all the people saying bosch, stuff is crap. I had some platinum boschs in my car and switched back to ngk v power and had less hesitation and smoother acceleration. ON A HONDA ONLY USE NGK.

Another thing to check would be pcv valve, if you have done tune ups without this you forgot an important step. When was the last time you changed cap and rotor also. I have read of fuel filters on a honda going for 200k and still getting 40mpg.

i changed the fuel filter last night.
I might as well look into getting the pcv valve changed too. How difficult is it to change it?
Cap and rotor i cant say for sure but i most likely was changed at 90,000 miles and its at 126,000 now.
If i change cap and rotor got any recommendations? Msd?

Ya OEM. PCV is super easy 2 vacuum lines, done.

i think i fidured out the problem. i changed the fuel filter and i have not once had the bogging problem. it would usually start after 30/40 mins of driving but i drove it a little over two hours straight with town and highway driving and no bogging. hopefully this did the trick

Nice i hope that fixed your problem. IF anything else comes up let us know

ok today on my way to cottage grove it started to bog on the hills on the way up. otherwise on the down part it was fine. and on some straight roads it bogged a little but otherwise it was fine. i think we are getting close to eliminating the problem.
i think i can find the pcv valve i will have to check. are they expensive?
i am going to be leaving for up north this saturday til the following sat. i wont have any access to my car but i will have access to mnhondas so if you guys have any other ideas i will be sure to check them out.

i mean how bad is the bog. my teg bogs like hell but still drives smooth. only bogs when idle though

ok when i get up too 70 and hold it steady i can hear the exhaust popping/ bogging and it starts to decrease in speed and then the only way to get it back up is to go full throttle. so i am constantly pushing the gas pedal all the way down then back up then down. not sure what other type of issue i could be having.
07-04-2009, 08:21 AM
i think it's another issue. not the spark
07-05-2009, 12:15 PM
ok. got any suggestions?
07-05-2009, 06:46 PM
not sure too.we both might have to look at it. one person cant really figure it out. need two person..lol
07-06-2009, 04:18 PM
kk. um..if this problem persists i will be changing the pcv valve. otherwise i wont really have acess to seeing anyone till around august when i go to college at st. cloud state. til then i will dink around and change out some things. if i start to run into any bigger problems i can send ya a message. whats ur cell # djtydus?
