SOURCE: have installed a throttle body spacer for 1995

Doesn't look like it goes in the same place as the old bracket?


Then look along the intake manifold, and see if there are bolts that line up, with the holes in the bracket. Align the bracket inline with the cable, move the bracket forward, and backward to see about possible mounting holes.

You may have to flip the bracket around in several positions. A lot of times appearances can be deceiving. The bracket may fit in a completely different position than looks to be obvious.

SOURCE: need to replace a 1991

These are fairly easy and straight forward to replace.

  • Start by removing the cable from the accelerator pedal. Climb under the dash and locate the cable at the back side of the pedal near the top. The cable is similar to the brake cable on a bike that has a knob at each end of it to retain it on the component. You can remove this by turning the cable so that it can slide out the notch on the side of the bracket and slide the knob out.
  • Next remove the cable from the throttle body. This is done very similar to what you just did under the dash. Turn the round bracket attached to the throttle body that the cable is wrapped around until the cable is loose and you can slide it through the notch in the side and slide the knob out.
  • Remove the cable from the mounting bracket. There are two 10mm nuts that lock it into place on the bracket.
  • Trace the throttle cable back to the firewall and remove it from all of the retaining clips.
  • Pull the cable through the firewall. The rubber grommet will come with it.
  • Install the new cable in the reverse order.
  • When you are re-installing the two 10mm nuts near the throttle body, these nuts are used for the adjustments. When the cable is installed on the throttle body, it doesn't need to be really tight, in fact there should be a slight amount of play in the cable. You can use the two 10mm nuts to adjust this.

Good Luck!

Honda crx with auto transmission idles roughly in drive or reverse. AC on makes it worse.

There are two coolant lines that connect to this Honda IAC to help quiet the operation of the valve. The part number for a OBDI 1992-1995 Honda Civic Idle Air Controller is 36450-P28-A01. While the OBDII version of this valve is 36450-P2J-J01, and the two units are very similar in design and execution. The EACV or Electronic Air Control Valve is a big part of maintaining your Honda Civic idle. If you've checked your IAC and your Honda still suffers from a surging idle, check your FITV. This Honda Idle Air Controller or IAC is under the throttle body and incorporates into the throttle body passages o locate your Fast Idle Thermo Valve, remove the intake snorkel and locate the FITV beneath your throttle body opening. If your SOHC engine is still having problems, check our guides above on how to check your FITV as well as your IAC. To check this operation, remove your air intake pipe and use your fingers to plug the passages in the lower left hand corner of your throttle body opening. If your idle surge does not go away, unplug your Idle Air Control valve and if that stops your idle surge, your IACV must be replaced. Follow our instructions on how to replace your Honda Civic Idle Air Control Valve. Need to raise your Honda Civic idle or having problems maintaining idle? You can adjust the base idle by unscrewing or screwing in the Idle screw on your throttle body. This screw allows air to bleed into the passages on the backside of your throttle body, as shown above. To learn how to adjust Honda Civic idle speed, you will not need to remove anything. With a standard screwdriver, simply locate your throttle body and Idle screw.

I have Civic 2001 with 160,000 miles on it. i have problem when i am driving on high way on 80/mph rpm stay on 2800 and after 5 minuts rpm goes to 3500 and i feel loud noise like engine is taking more...

If the car type is manual transmission:
- Perform the clutch and pressure plate test.
- Pull up the hand brake, shift the lever to 1st gear, rev up to 2000 rpm, release the clutch pedal at once.
- If the engine does not stall, replace the clutch, pressure plate, clutch bearing, regrind the fly wheel and pressure plate precisely.
- If the engine stalls, the clutch system is OK and do not need any clutch system repairing.
- If the clutch system is OK, check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).

If the car type is automatic transmission:
- Check the transmission control cable adjustment.
- Check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).
- Check the Automatic Transmission Fluid level in the transmission with the car on level floor, engine start, gear lever in P.
If the problem persists, contact a competent technician or service personnel.

Sometime, when I drive using D gear, it suddenly changes to N gear.

Ruling out transmission problems, you may need to
have the throttle cable or shift linkage adjusted. A Job
best left to Honda.

My Honda Civic A/T has problems to engage into the reverse gear

Regarding the transmission, before taking it to a
repair shop, check the transmission fluid level.
If it's OK, it could be anything from a throttle cable
or shift linkage adjustment to internal tranny problems
In you case it could be the adjustment, which is best
corrected by the dealer.

Throttle cables???

it controls the shifting of the trans. it is important to have this adjusted correctly. I dont remeber the exact procedure but I do know that when it is all said and done, you end up with only a slight bit of slack on the trans cable.

i recently worked on a 90 civic and i was able to adjust the idle by loosening the throttle cable near the throttlebody (there are a couple of nuts) and adjust it by moving the nuts along the cable adjuster by spinning them until the car idled well again and the owner has had no problems since
(it was not stalling but was very close to it especially at stop lights)
hope this works for you!
