    ok..about 2 weeks ago i noticed that my tach was going apeshit betwen 4K - 5K rpm when i am accelerating hard. it doesnt seem to do it as much when i accelerate slowly. i checked the plug gaps and condition. my NGK plugs are only about 2 mo.s old. my OEM plug wires are only about 4 mo.s old..and still fit nice and snug. i have also used alot of fuel injector cleaner stuff thinking it was clogged injectors. i am thinking my distributor is needing a rebuild??? just a wild guess. any suggestions?

    also, the car is not running as strong as it did a few weeks ago.

    thanks for any suggestions

    BTW, this is an 89 crx dx (D15)

    lol

    actually, i had used borg & warner caps and rotors before (from pep boys) and they lasted about 4 times longer than that honda one i bought from the dealer. in fact, i never had that erratic tach problem before. i usually just changed my cap and rotor because they had soooo many miles on them.
