My '94 Tempo just started sputtering, with loss of power. If I floor it from a take off it'll get up to speed then, I can take my foot out of it and it runs ok unless I have my foot into the gas pedal at all then, it misses and falls on it's face. So, floor it from a stop and foot barely on the gas pedal it runs ok. gas pedal between barely idling and wide open it runs poorly. any one have a suggestion? Thanks.

I have a 1994 Honda Prelude Si non v-tech i recently changed distributor and spark plugs. Before i changed sparks car was running rough it had a lag to take off and sometimes lost power while at around 40-50mph (had to really gas it or would slow) so adjusted timing. After it would just idle at like 300 rpm and couldn't take off at all now it doesn't start gave code 8. We check spark plugs they have sparks, checked compression was like between 120-123 was pretty balanced but low and found theirs

The rear passenger window fell (slipped down) when we closed the door. There is no tension to hold the window up and the power control doesn't effect it.
