Engine surging 1990 honda accord

I have a 1990 honda accord and the engine is surging. i notice it most when the car is in drive and then i put it in park. the car when i drive it feels like it wants to cut off. took it to a shop and they said it was the o2 sensor. changed it out and it still doing it. then i was told it was the air intake valve. changed it out and still the problem stays. car has low miles for the year 122k. Is this a serious problem to where I need to get rid of it for very cheap or is this something much more simpler that has not been discovered?

1990 honda accord surges at idle, what can cause this?


It is likely a vacuum leak (from a hose or the intake manifold), or a sensor is not working properly (like the throttle position sensor, MAF sensor, idle air control ).
Spray carburetor cleaner around suspect areas to find a vacuum leak. The spray will be sucked into engine and raise idle. Spray around the intake manifold where it mates to head for leaks there.
Also check for trouble codes. Maybe a sensor threw a trouble code.
Good luck.

Rough idle on 1990 Honda Accord when the car is put in reverse or drive


Sounds like your rear engine mount is bad. It's a vacuum controlled mount and only an original Honda replacement mount will work to make the car vibration free once again. The aftermarket mounts don't come with the vacuum setup.

My timing belt and water pump for Honda Accord 1990 was replaced and used the car for 2- 3 weeks. After driving about 15 minutes, entering the freeway, my car slowed down but the engine still running....


If you have never changed that distributor on your 1990 Accord, I would suspect it. Check for spark while cranking. The sensors inside the distributor would usually heat up, after 15-20 minutes of running, and would then die out, until the car is cooled off for a while. Look into that distributor.

1990 Honda Accord just quit while driving. How do


You should be able to remove some 10 mm bolts from the timing belt cover and pry the cover out of the way enough to see the timing belt. Have an assistant crank the engine and look for movement of the belt. If you cannot get the cover off, remove the valve cover and look for movement. Don't crank the engine too long with the valve cover off, as you make make an oily mess, especially if the engine fires and starts.

1990 honda accord lx oil leakage problem


No, you don't have to pull the engine. Many of those problems are fixed by removing the wheel, and the plastic inner fender. It's probably a crank seal, or a power steering hose. PS- You mean the passenger side... don't you?
