My 05 Ody has been acting strangely for the past couple of weeks. It seems to hesitate, and I have to carefully adjust my foot on the accelerator to keep it from stalling - either when starting after a stop, or when stopping at a light. It shudders a bit and seems to lose power. If I am not careful it will die, with all the dashboard lights coming on, but it is easily re-started.
I took it to my mechanic who drove it and did a throttle bosy cleaning. Yesterday while I was driving on the interstate, the car died at 65 miles an hour - with lights going on as it did when it stalled at the light, but before I could react it came back to life. The best way I can describe it is like when you pop the clutch on a standard transmission. It just re-started on its own. It was pretty terrifying as there were tractor trailers behind me. Needless to say the van is in the shop as I type, but the mechanic was scratching his head over this... Has anyone every experienced anything like this before? The mechanic thought it was an electrical problem, a friend who is a mechanic in another state said it sounded like a fuel problem. Any ideas?
