Maintenance on 2005 Honda CR-V

I have new spark plugs installed, done the fuel injection cleaning, & replaced all air filters. Why am I still experiencing hard starting? Also, the vehicle comes to a slow down when I take off my foot from the gas pedal. Accelerating is also poor, not what it used to be.

Find a Honda specialist and get the fuel pressure checked. Also, FYI, if you put the gas pedal down to the floor when starting, it cuts off the fuel as a 'flooding' clearing feature, so don't use much pedal (if any - shouldn't need to, it's automatically controlled) when starting. Here's a directory link for you:
