    I have a 4 cylinder 2000 honda accord ex coupe. I recently had to switch out the engine with a 1999 honda accord lx. I got the engine in but whenever i hit the gas it shuts off. what could be the problem?

    I got the engine from a junkyard out of a wrecked car. i had a f23a1 in it but it threw a rod. the new engine i got is a f23a4 i think because it has ulev and my other engine didn't. could that be the problem?
