Default car dies when i give it gas?

ok i have a 97 honda civic dx all stock besides short ram intake. 5-speed and when i started driving it it drove fine but when it warmed up it seemed like it was overheating or something, it might needs a new 3rd gear synco. if im just parked and letting it idle its fine but if i give it some gas it hesitates and then dies if i keep my foot on the gas. sorry if this is hard to understand but im trying to explain it the best i can.

overheating? did the temp gauge climb? Are you throwing any code?

i have the same problem except with a D15Z1 stock with a short ram, my car stays on in idle but dies when i get into gear and accelerate, try checking the fuel system like the pump, pressure, or filter, that's what people told me to check on my thread

fill your gas tank then..


when you give it gas, does it rev up, then when you let off, it dies? or it dies as your revving it?

if you blip the throttle, and it idles lower than it should that almost stalls, you could try cleaning you iacv and throttle body..

new problem to me, but in for updates.. good luck

a fouled out plug wont be able to spark and burn more fuel when u press the gass. so it floods and dies.
