    alright.. the GSR threw a CEL last night..

    45- Accord Civic CRV CRX Del Sol Odyssey Prelude
    96-98 96-98 97-98 n/a 96-97 96-98 96-98
    System Too Lean or Too Rich
    malfunction in the fuel monitoring systems


    now if the timing was off, would it cause this? i suspect the timing is off a bit after the timing belt change.. it hasnt felt right since and i havent had a chance to check it because i dont have a timing light..

    yes, possibly but you would get more then that code.

    get gas at a different place?

    check your tps, map, evap system, o2 sensor,
    also fuel filter and injector ohmage

    I would start off by checking the timing. Its to coincidental that you had the problems right after having the t belt changed. Also double check your marks and make sure your not off a tooth or something like that.

    I know this sounds retarded for a stock vehicle, but seriously.. adjustable cam gears are probably the best investment I ever made.. so easy to correct little things like this...

    My vote is for timing because its sputtering and hesitating..

    if not timing maybe a clogged cat if it has some mileage on it

    I just swapped to an ls, mine is doing the same thing, sputters when its below 3000 rpm. I think its the position of the distributor but i know for sure i have a leak somewhere in the throttle body. I think changing gaskets will do the trick but does anyone know the correct dist. postition for the ls by chance?
