Question about 1994 Honda Civic
The rpm goes down then stalls the engine. THis happens intermittently, during morning cars ok as long as engine is not turned off, but after turning off engine then start car again, rpm goes down and stalls the engine. Is this a carburator problem?
We cleaned the carburator several times but it never fixed the problem, the only way I can make the car run is to adjust idle just to get the car home. But once it's normal the idle will be at 3000 rpm which is too high.
Ihave the same experience try to remove the idle jet located next to the starting jet. But be careful in removing it as it will break easily ( you will need a flat screwdiver to do it ) clean it with a wire that closest size of the jet. change your fuel filter ang drain all the fuel inside before putting it back. make sure to put some air pressure on each holes on the carb so it flush all unwanted particles inside and pls dont use silicone in sealing the rubbers inside.

stalling issue at low speeds
is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and
throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or
Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake
while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will
try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30
minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and
disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base
