Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1998 HONDA ACCORD EX V-6

At start up the car idles at 1800rpm's (normally 1500) then goes into a weird fluctuation , 1000rpm's up to 2200 rpm's then back down non-stop.
It stops the surging in drive , but still idles too high.
Is it the idle control valve ?
Car has also been shifting hard , I believe it is connected to the same issue as above.

Thanks for any help or info

Sounds like your automatic idle control valve needs to be cleaned. Common irratic idle issue. Just remove, shoot carb cleaner onto ports until comes out clean. should be able to move valve inside easily.

1998 Honda Accord engine rumbles and stops


rumbles?, did the RPM drop below 800 RPM? that is called idle failure
and when it does, idle can go to 400 rpm and will shake hard.
and is normal for illegal idle speeds. so post that first.
post that engine stalls
and that the RPM is 400-500 just before the stall.
then post if the fast right foot can save the stall (a key test !!!!)
if easy the ISC is sticking.
if tad hard the EGR is stuck open'
if impossible to save. then more possible (many)
ever do the 60k mile tune up this decade????,. if not why not./ now.

2006 chevy 2500 express cargo van .What is a good oil pressure for this van. it has 150,000 miles runs great


60psi cold / 30-45psi warm is ideal. I've seen (with that mileage) 45 cold/ 20 warm and that's acceptable - anything less start thinking about a new oil pump.

The rpm go up an down


Change your coolant temperature sensor for the computer.(not the one for the temperature gauge).They are located one beside the other,under the distributor cap.The parts supplier will know which one you need.When you start the car cold it usually idles 1800 to 2000 rpm for a minute or so and as the resistance starts to decrease,the rpm drops.after a couple minutes the rpm goes to 1000 rpm.People that are in the habit of driving the car right away at 2000 rpm are putting a huge stress on the axles,and find that they are replacing them every 100000 km.It also wears out your brakes faster .When the sensor goes bad,it causes a fluctuating idle .

My car is honda accord coupe 1999 V4, EX. The problem is: the Mechanic could hardly start the car, and when it starts the RPM (round per minute) is very high, it's 2200 RPM.. is it caused by the ECU?


The EAVC and Idle Control Valve might be sticking. Remove air filter and pipe work, and inside the throttle body are these valves. Clean the up and reset the ECU - usually removing the negative battery lead will reset Honda's.

The ECU won't be broken or anything by the way, if that's what the mechanic was getting at.

(By the way it's Revs Per Minute RPM :)

Honda Accord 1991 idles high then low


)The fact that thge engine idle fluctuates when it is cold indicates that the Fast Idle THermo Valve is out of adjustment.
This valve is located ot the front of the intake manifold on the driver's side just below the accelerator cable. To adjust it, wait until the engine is cold (best to do it first thing in the morning).
Remove the two screws holding the cover on and start the engine. There is a brass needle sticking up through a plastic ring that has two slots in it. With the engine idle fluctuating, use a thin flat blade screwdriver to SLOWLY turn the ring CLOCKWISE
until the idle stabilizes. Once done. put the cover back on withg the two screws and you should be done.
