Default New here, and already trouble :(

Hi there, i'm a long time viewer, but first time posting some on the forum.

I've bought a 1991 Civic ED7, which has the D16Z2 engine (just a D16A6 with some small changes)

First, at startup, everything is running ok, about 1700-1800 rpm when completely cold.
After about 30-45 seconds, the rpm starts to go down, but during idle it seems like the car doesn't get a spark/fuel for about half a second.
after that everything is ok, until about 30 seconds later when the same thing occurs again.

When driving, I sense that there is some power missing, and it doesn't pull right to the redline.
After about 5 minutes when the engine is at normal temperature, the car just stutters , and looks like it's misfiring all the time until about 3000 rpm.
above that it's on all 4 but still with the power missing.

Things i've looked at/changed:
Spark plugs (replaced)
Spark wires (Replaced)
Oil/filter
Air Filter
Fuel filter

Thinking the problem might be somewhere in the distributor, cap, or the ignition coil.

Hope you guys can help

Pull your cap and rotor, sound like they need to be replaced

I've experienced distributor cap moisture too. Whether it be oil seeping in or water moisture. That would cause problems.

I'd do a basic tune up and double check your base timing
