Icon2 Honda Accord 2000 - Intermittent issue - Engine Light ON / Jerks on 3k revs

I have a Honda Accord 2000 1.8 that runs fine. However every once in a while the engine management light comes on (not flashing).
Once this is on the car can not top 3k revs and it starts jerking. Even on neutral when you put your foot down the engine jerks.

Engine also stalls during the drive, which is dangerous as steering gets jam. Starting car again works but I have noticed in those cases the fuel guage goes to E and light comes on (even though before stalling it was showing correctly half a tank). The idle revs are also too low. Are these two problems sign of something else wrong? Something with fuel injection?

One suspect was CAT which a garage tested for me and it is fine. Another garage tested for the code and it came out P1607.
I was told that the Engine Control Module is at fault and it needed to be sent away for either repair or replacement.
Cost around 300~400 pounds in both cases.

Just wanted to know if this is what might be it or I could be out of pocket for this money with fault still there.

Any questions please ask me.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If your are getting a p1607 code its time to change your computer, which motor do you have f23a1 or f23a4?

Very well could be the ECU, I'd make sure to get a pressure reading from your fuel pump as well. The F23a1 motor turns vtec on at 2500rpm, maybe it's trying to advance timing too much or little and chugging along, idk. BTW you don't have a 1.8, you either have a 2.3li or 3.0v6, unless you did some kind of 1.8li engine swap.

hey draco751,

It is a Euro model (I am here in Queen's land)
The engine is F18B2.
Rest of details:
ACCORD I-VTEC SE (MK6)
Engine Size 1850 cc
Manufactured 2000
Transmission MANUAL

However a couple of people have suspected fuel system at fault. I will get it checked/fixed as it is much cheaper than ECM thing.

Something strange I found out that when I took it to first garage who checked CAT was because they could not find the plug to check engine code. Even though the manual says it should be under the carpet on passenger side it is no where to be found.

Then it was this second garage who gave me code P1607.

Now just to confirm that it is the right code I took it this weekend to two garages and both could not find the plug to check engine code.

I am now wondering where did P1607 code came in from and how was it received without the plug. It is suspected that it was either never fitted or removed/pushed in dashboard after wards.

Any other way for checking Engine code?
