Knock sensor for Honda 1998 Accord LX


Duplicate question.
I doubt the sensor would make the engine stop running. The computer would slow down the spark timing to prevent engine knock, but not shut it off.

I have a 1996 Honda accord lx 5 speed. When I let it idle it drops below 500 rpm and almost stalls out. What would this be?


  • Dirty air filter or bird nest in the air intake
  • Broken vacuum hose or fitting
  • Worn plugs or bad wires (will run rough; exhaust may smell dirty or have raw gas odor).
  • Clogged fuel injector or fuel filter; failing fuel pump (will also run poorly at high power demand)
  • Bad throttle position sensor or dirty throttle body - inspect any idle air bypass channels.
  • Bad or misadjusted idle air solenoid (I'm not sure if it's used on this model; you'll have to check to see what engine you have.)

These are the first places to look. If the Check Engine light is on, getting a diagnostic readout may save some time in your search for the problem.

Hi i have a 98 honda accord lx and i wanted to know wether it was my trammy or the clutch because when ever i do a rolling stop or if i had jus finished backing up nd as soon as i put it in drive and press...


I had the same problem on a 1998. The computer controlled mixture at idle is not working right, and idle is dipping below 700 rpm. The culprit was a dirty throttle body intake. This tends to foul the plugs as well, after a few minutes of idling, so i would recommend changing the plugs after you have the system cleaned. The problem is intermittent because at high engine speed, say 3000 rpm, the plugs clear up and work normally.

1988 5 speed Honda Accord


Ensure your spark plugs,wires (ignition coil and spark) and your filters (air and fuel) are within 2 years of installation It's erratic at 800 rpm as the engine is cold and they like the 2200 range for 3 minutes before they kick down on their own. Press the pedal twice before inserting your key. The owners manual states depending on the outside temperature, the engine will require more priming. Update if possible.

I have an 89 Honda Accord lx and it idles too low


The idle speed for my 88 accord lx is 700-850 rpm for standard idle speed. The stalling is a seperate issue. When were plugs, wires, air/gas filters and distributor last checked? How long has engine been running for when you stall? Is the temprature gauge high? Any lights coming on when stall occurs? I am not a mechanic, but a DYI'er. These are common questions I am always asked when troubleshooting my Honda. :)

Have a 1989 Honda Accord LX and my idle after warmed up, every time I come to a stop my car dies. I've changed plugs, set idle speed a number of times, it will run good for a few days and then it's right...


If you can keep the engine running with your foot on the gas at a stop it is likely to be the Idle control valve. Older Hondas' have 2 valves. fast idle control (which is prone to cause fast, or surging idle due to vacuum leakage) and the Idle control that takes over from the cold idle control once warmed up. They are located at the throttle butterfly assembly.
