      Are you talking about misfire at Idle or under acceleration ?

      This thread is about Idle stumble or stutter, and no , no fix.

      If you are talking about misfire during acceleration, see other threads on the subject. usually coil packs or tight intake valves.

        I'll pass this along but it was a long time ago and seeing how this is not being solved I would like to bring up my experience. I had a 2006 GX which would stumble, stall, miss when stopping (or stopped) when it was hot out. It had something to do with the A/C compressor operation as turning the A/C off would minimize or eliminate the problem. It turned out (in my case anyway) there is some sort of controller in the charging system that adjusts the idle speed of the engine when the alternator needs more power, like running the A/C system at full load. That coupled with the mechanical load on the engine at idle from the A/C compressor was causing the stalling. The controller was defective and wasn't keeping the engine at proper idle speed allowing it to stumble or stall. The dealer replaced the controller and the problem mostly went away. My Civic was never as smooth at idle as my Cavaliers were but at least is was not stalling. Like I said, that was a long time ago but maybe it is part of this problem. I know I posted some stuff about it somewhere on the forum years ago.

          I think that component is an electrical relay module Honda calls an " Idle Stabilizing Amplifier ". The dealer never tried that fix on my 08, so maybe I missed out on a poss. fix.

            Thank you. It is on acceleration.

              Please keep in mind that English is not my first language and I don't handle car technical terms very well in this language.

              My car had this issue and now is fixed.

              My car starts having this stutter problem when hot around 45 days ago. At first, I got the check engine light on and code p1129 (Map sensor voltage higher than expected). The sensor and air filter were replaced, MAF and throttle body was cleaned up and no vacuum leak was found. After few days the problem started again. Got the code couple of time more and then no codes at all.

              The stutter continued. Both high pressure and low-pressure filter were replaced and nothing changed.

              I went to a Honda specialist and they found my car was having misfires on all 4 cylinders (No code), tested with another ignition coils and nothing, took out the injectors change the order, put it back in and the misfires/fails order change on the computer (some of the cylinders were failing more than the others) they assume that was the problem. Injectors were sent to be clean but that didn't fix it.

              Bad news for me, had to replace all 4 injectors as you may know, they are expensive. Injectors were replaced and the problem still continues.

              To not make this story longer than it is, it was an electrical problem. They found out something was off because the car starts having some bad readings/parameters (no codes) on different sensors.

              Turns out all electrical grounds were in bad shape because of corrosion, they were disconnected, cleaned and connected. This was done a week ago and the car runs like a charm, no stutter when hot, no codes, no nothing

              Hope this will be helpful.

                Both my 01 and 2010 GX have this issue
