    Dude you geting smoked by a sunbird says alot , though we cant take much information from it. Is your clutch slipping, is the car in dire need of a tune up, theres a million and a half hings that would make your car seem under power, yo uneed to tell your mechanic and get yoru moneys worth out of him.

    have you tryed the simple things like a tuneup? Put some new plugs in (NGK) and put some new wires on it (OEM HONDA) new distributor cap, rotor, and fuel filter. Run a compression test. Maybe you got a bad engine.
