1992 Honda Civic VX 1.5L from North America
Excellent car for fuel economy
I haven't had any serious problems with the car yet. When I got the car a couple of months ago, I gave it a pretty good tune-up. I changed the oil and filter, fuel filter, air filter, plugs and wires and the cap and rotor.
The only problem I am having is when you're driving sometimes the car will chug or jerk. I doesn't matter what gear you are in or how fast you are going.
Or sometimes it will feel like you've suddenly taken your foot off the gas when you haven't.
Both of these problems seen to be corrected it you put your foot to the floor.
Any suggestions would be nice.
I am very happy with the car. I bought it to drive to work, which is an hour each way. I've been getting about 45 mpg, which is going to save me about $200.00 a month. It seems to be very quick for a little four cylinder. Not the most comfortable car, but it gets the job done.
I started with 138,000 miles and hope to double that before I am through.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your oxygen sensor is out. You can test it by disconnecting your oxygen sensor and drive it around (it won't hurt the car, you just won't get as good mpg. But you're not getting good mpg anyways, you should be getting 47-52mpg on average) You will notice that the car will drive smooth again. You should replace the O2 sensor, it will save you money in the long run... With these gas prices, like in two months.

The hesitating could be the spark plug wires. They tend to pop up due to the rubber expanding in the valve cover.
