Gents,

I got the dizzy changed yesterday and the engine management light is off and the car engages vtec fine. However when I picked the car up and took it for a drive, it was very hesitant and wouldn't shift like it normally does.

I waited for it to warm up before giving it the beans and it seems to be bogging down. I have had a look online and apparently the dizzy change can knock out the timing by a tooth? Is this the case?

Other things that have recently been changed on the car is the spark plugs, the fuel filter has been replaced, the leads are probably about 60k mileage old.

The car seemed to be fine before the dizzy was changed? Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Ranj, was this a new non genuine Honda dizzy? If so, I had the same issue on a 4th Gen. Bought it brand new and the car was so hesitant! At the time i was desperate to get the car working so just purchased a it. A week later, I manage to find a 2nd hand work from a local scrapyaed and what do you know, the power was restored!

Definetly check the new dizzy or put the old one back in first. I've never bought one of those ever again.
Ive had same issue with brand new aftermarket dizzy - mega misfires and low power - swapped to 2nd hand oem dizzy and problem solved.

Mind u ive had a few oem dizzys fail and they definately can be tempremental if resetting timing etc ;)

If you're ever in this neck of the woods again - happy to go through and swap over the coil (think ive got 2 spare), recheck the timing etc.

I still have your old dizzy here aswell.
