Rough Running Accord

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man

I have an '88 Honda Accord that idles very high when cold (around 2500-3000 RPM). After the engine warms up the idle reduces to a normal speed. But the acceleration is very poor, especially in higher gears. What could cause this?

When was the last time this car had a tune up? It sounds like it may be in desperate need of one.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
