The following may be possible causes of the problem: incorrect idle speed, clogged fuel filter, damaged or damp distributor components, faulty spark plug wires, or faulty emission system, among others. Consult your user's manual for more clarification.

Because it is going into neutral. This is called "popping out of gear." It means the transmission's shot.

You may have a broken spring which disengages the transmission allowing it to shift or it is bad linkage going to the transmission.

There are a few places where one can find parts for a 96 Honda Accord. This includes going to a Honda dealership, as well as looking at part suppliers online.
