Re: my Accord lost engine power help me out!!!!!

Wouldnt be a tuneup, your car would have a misfire if you were that in need of one. As far as what it could be, quite a few things. I would first start with double checking your ignition switch install. Also check your battery connections. It could just been a fluke especially if it is being intermittent. Just to be on the safe side check your oil dip stick a few times, make sure you didnt suck any water up from the puddles.

Re: my Accord lost engine power help me out!!!!!

if you got shocked thats a good indication of leaking spark plug wires. where you near the distributor cap by anychance when you got shocked?

ive seen carbon tracking before that could arc through the cap.

i would check into that first. replace whats needed before guessing whats needed

Pop the hood at night when it's pitch black. If the wires are shorting out you should be able to see the arcs.
