    I have a b16a in a 94 hatch and when I got to start it it starts fine
    Then after letting it runn for a while check engine light goes on the car gets louder then when I drive it it back fires around 4,500 rpm and after a while the exuahst starts to smell like a rotten any ideas.
    new to the Honda scene and to the group thanks in advance

    first thing you need to do is pull the code and find out what the CEL is for

    ^ what he said, generally speaking when most people go to diagnose a car and the CEL is on , they see what code the CEL is throwing , we have this thing called OBD and it stands for On Board Diagnostic

    Sounds like limp mode because of code being thrown.

    Get on it! All you need is a paper clip or piece of electrical wire and jump the service connector (between glove box and kick panel) then key to on position so you can read/count the flashes. There's good threads already detailing the process. It's pretty easy.
