Having a Fit about stuttering

12-14-2015, 12:53 PM
Honda Fit Sport 2008, 167k miles, owned by me six months. I bought it in California and drove it cross-country to North Carolina. Around 2/3 of the way here, I noticed some stuttering at middle-low RPM (2000-2500). It has gotten worse, but is not yet terribly bad. It is as if the key were turned off for a fraction of a second. Anyone old enough to remember vapour lock? It's like that. At high RPM (3000 and up), runs fine, If I feather the pedal (low RPM), it's fine. Air filter doesn't look dirty, but could that possibly cause "mid-RPM stutter"? If it were a fuel pump or fuel filter, I would expect high RPM to be almost impossible.

Possibly ignition. Check your spark plugs, wires, coils, etc.
