Question about 1997 Honda Civic
I have ordered an "idle control valve" for the above car as the engine is continually "hunting" while at operating temp while in neutral. My question is:- how do you change it and where is it located on the fuel injection system?
Is it an easy job and how long would it normally take assuming I have all teh correct tools?
I have a 1997 Civic DX. It looks to me that the IACV is located between the engine valve cover and throat of the air intake or throttle body. Not near the fire wall. This model has 4 screws connecting it to the throttle body.

The Idle control valve is located on the throttle body, follow the tube that goes from your air filter box to the top of the engine, that's the throttle body. If i remember right it is located on the back side of it but when you receive your part you will be able to match it up to make sure your on the right path. It is generally a very simple fix with 3 screws I believe, I think they are hex head screws. With the correct tools it shouldn't take more than 15 Min's to change.
