Question about 1994 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Rpms up and down/idlind

Hello,
I took my Honda Civic hatchback to the mechanic when it started to die on the stop lights. They "fixed" this and now it starts to idle after couple of miles - rpms going up and down when slowing down and when stopping. Mechanic is blaming a/c compressor (changed last year) but it is happening with or without a/c and/or heat on. Could you help?

Hey

il give you a list of problems it could be...its a problem that could come from a wide range of sensors etc

try changing your TPS (throttle positioning sensor) its located on the intake area (look where the throttle cable hooks to the engine) Possibility of a fuel pressure regulator problem. Also a faulty Idle Air Control motor (IAC) could cause the problem. computer may need to be reset. (disconnect the battery for bout 15 mins) possibly a vacuum leak...check hoses, you may need to replace your intake maniflod gasket

1990 Honda Civic Stall out and wont immediately restart


Disassemble and clean the carb, particularly the jets. I suspect the charge light being on is a result of your destroyed battery, which needs to be replaced. Sta-bil over the winter and a smart trickle charger will prevent the problems you are having in the future...

Engine misses when idling at 800 RPM when warmed up


The idler air control is not working like it should. try tapping on it with a screw driver lightly this should kinda fix the problem while u are tapping. This will need to be replaced if it starts agian after u stop tapping.

You will need something to lift the engine so that you can take the pressure off of the mount. It sounds like your fuel pump may be wearing out and it is not responding like it should...The pump on the gas tank should be located on the top of the tank....Under the back seat....
