2003 Honda Civic EX 4 Cyl 1.7L


fuel system, stalling

when i start my car, it shakes a bit, when i start to drive for the first 5-10 minutes it will shake and try to stall out. I press the gas and it is delayed in responding and then jolts forward, makes a roaring sound and it runs fine after that. This happens more when the car has been sitting for a while, but happens every time I drive it

You need to check your fuel pressure first. That will tell you for sure what's going on. If fuel pressure is normal, you can either check fuel pump volume or move onto something else like spark. Sounds to me like a clogged fuel filter or a bad pump. But check for pressure first. Also, are you seeing a check engine light?
