    Engine won't rev in gear

    Engine won't rev. above 1000 rpm once it is in any gear (under load).
    Engine starts but with low rpm ~400 rpm then idles low ~500-600rpm.
    Engine will rev up in neutral but with somewhat delayed response.
    Headlights and a/c will cause engine rpm to drop and not recover.
    Once in gear engine will not go above 1krpm even if I 'floor' it.
    '98 crv, awd, at, 4 cyl
    ~100k miles
    Timing belt has not been changed.
    All maintenance at dealership.
    Location: New England
    Any clues? Thanks in advance.

    to me it sounds like bad timing possibly, is it throwing any codes?
