Question about Cars & Trucks
Took it to get repaired. Said it was the throttle body. Got a new one installed. Few days later it's acting up again and I haven't taken it in again. Today, I was in first gear from a stop and the car started jerking and the car is shaking. I drive it home and it's fine. I don't know what the heck to do. help.
When the garage replaced the throttle body ,what did they replace .there is 2 sensors on the throttle body. 1 is the idle air control valve and the other is your throttle position senor. it sounds to me your have a transmission problem. are there any codes

see my comments, not 100% sure that it was the out put speed censor or not, but after reconnecting the wires to a new censor and reconnecting the battery and clearing codes it worked. connection was not clipped may have been loose

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.
