MAF(Mass air flow) sensor is dirty or bad. Go to AutoZone and get the cleaner spray and clean it. Make sure you have a clean air filter to put in it right away too. That was my problem and get it fixed soon.

Having a fast honda is like coming out of the closet. you surprise everyone at first, but in the end your still gay.

Mine was dying (and is starting to again) from a bad MAP and Barometric Pressure sensor.
