the motor is a d16z6, with i/h/e. under heavy loads the car feels as if it pauses, and then goes. no matter how much gas is being pushed through the pedal it feels like it goes no where. is this the symptom of the car losing power. the mileage is unknown and the car smokes a lil bit. im thinking it's the rings. but more info would be helpful

im wondering if this could be my distributor, wires, and cap. none of it is oem except the spark plugs. also the wiring harness is from a civic vx. it's been about 20k since anything went wrong.

that tuneup should include a PCV valve, fuel filter, air filter, seafoam or some sort of other fuel system/combustion chamber cleaner.
