2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking

When I start the car, the engine starts idling very slowly, then starts jerking. The car will eventually stabilise but when you engage the gear, jerking starts all over. Sometimes even when it allows you drive, the jerking can start in motion. The CHECK light has remained on for some time. The local dealer here in Owerri, South East Nigeria flushed the injector system and changed the spark plugs but the problem still persits.

Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

SOURCE: where is the tcu in a 2002 honda accord

it is the Transmission Control Unit. you have to find the reason why the TCU is flashing the D4 fault code. not replace the unit. have your vehicle scanned for another code. your transmission or transaxle is giving you a warning that something is wrong .

SOURCE: 2002 Honda Accord. Engine does slow start and jerks

sounds like you have a problem with the spark the coil may be on its way out or there may be oil in the spark plug holls shorting out the spark.
your best bet is to pull the leads out 1 at a time and and look down and check for oil if there is oil there get a new rocker cover gasket.
if no oil refit plug leads loosely and start the car remove one lead at a time slowly and look at the spark cumming out the end off the lead is it blue? if so it is ok if it is yellow and dull you have a coil problem. also check that the spark is only comming out the end of the lead as it may be comming ou the side of the lead and shorting to earth,
you can do this by slowly moving the lead around the top of the sparkl plug holl and see were the spark is comming from

be carfull no to shock your self as it herts like hell

good luck

po505 idle air control if this is the code all hondas do it eventully, small problem easy fix u have 2 choices either remove the idle air control motor and clean the inside of it u will find it's black and the spring inside is stuck clean it with carb cleaner or gum cutter any parts store will have this it's a dirty job it will work for awhile but to replace it is recommended its not expensive for a new one which u can get at any autoparts store autozone,advanced,napa etc. there is only 2 bolts in most cases maybe 3 i doubt it though if u go online t google and type in th eyear make and model and engine size in ur case it's a 3.0 v6 and look for idle air control locations u'll find it to do this job a shop will charge u anywhere from 100.00 for diag to retrive the code plus the part and the labor so about 250.00-375.00 it will only take u honestly maybe 15 minutes to perform only tools needed are a 10 millimeter wrench there is only 1 connector to disconnect and ur done if u do this u will still have the check engine light because u have not cleared it from the computer to do this just disconnect the negative battery terminal (the black one or has a neg sign - don't disconnect the positive side +)for 5 minutes then reconnect and the computer will have reset no more light. good luck it really is that easy

Every mile or half a mile my car will start slowin down an jerking an i jus got a new trans put in an motor could it be the cadlic converter


have scanned to find problem code. any auto parts store will scan for free. it maybe a crank sensor that causes it to slow down while driving, a crank sensor controls timing. if check engine light is not on at idle, then hook a scanner up to the car and let a friend record the codes ( if any). while you drive.

My honda accord 94 jerks when i take off slow


there are many possible problems here. one of them is the throttle position sensor. it is nothing more than a volume switch on a cheap radio. it moves voltage from 0 to 5 v and tells the computer what you want the engine to do. When they fail usually one part of the range quits working which would produce the effect you described As i said this is just one of the possible problems but one you should rule out. Checking it is done by locating the sensor and checking output with a volt meter. maybe go to local autoparts store and read why check engine light is on It should tell you which sensor is bad if that is the problem
