I have a 1993 Honda Accord LX which idles with a "surge" while the car is in park...the "surge" goes away when you put it into gear. Any ideas?


On the throttle body, that's the part where the throttle cable goes on, will be a screw. might have a plastic cap covering it, remove cap, and with screw driver turn screw in there to where it will idle where you want it, that the idle mixture screw.

Have 1988 honda civic that is surgeing while in park


The surging is related to your Idle Air Control Valve (IACV), it adjusts idle based on coolant temperature, your coolant could be low or your IACV could be bad.

The idle drops when i put it in gear almost stalling the engine


That is normal, in park or neutral there is no resistance on the engine when you put it in gear there is resistance because the car wants to move. Also when you turn on the ac that turns on the compressor that is run off the belts of the engine so it puts more resistance on the engine. Low idle is not a problem unless the engine dies.
