    i will start at where I am up to now.
    My car currently starts and drives normal with the engine light on.

    I was driving along and decided to see if I could recreate a problem I thought had been remedied, sometimes when I accelarated hard in 3rd the car would suddenly lose momentum ( like a sharp tap on the brakes) I would lift of and things would return to normal. After a little research I thought maybe the FF was at fault so I had the car fully serviced (non honda) and forward 5 days to today i put my foot down in 3rd and right at the top end the car cut out all together. It would not start, then after 5 minutes it started and drove but with engine light on.

    So do you think this non honda part is to blame ?
    What about engine warning light still being on ?
    Does this not sound like a dreaded broken fuel pump?

    Yes mate its bud for 11 years this is not the first time this has happened and it won't as owners think non genuine is better. Genuine parts and it works all the time every time. Pump can't say unless you look at it 99% its the fuel filter.
