uneven power delivery
Hi, can anyone help with this very annoying problem?
I have a 2007 1.8 civic which has uneven power delivery in a most gears, it feels like lag or missfire / hicup. I have just been on a 100 mile motorway run and it was driving me crazy.

Has it had a thorough service recently? How many miles has it done? Once the engine is warmed up can you see any smoke or cloudiness from the exhaust (note on a cold day you will see cloudiness regardless).

First thing I'd try is in the same situation, turn off the vsa and try again, atleast then you can iliminate traction control/abs sensors being faulty...

Check your battery connections as a 1st port of call.
Then as above....plugs/coils/leads
No fault codes ?
No datalogging ?

Cheers for the replies, I think I will change the plugs first to see if that helps.
No fault codes have flashed up, it just feels odd.7
Cheers again, chilli

Dirty injectors perhaps
Run a can or two of BG44K through it
