Has to be a ground problem.
There should be a small black wire coming from the negative
battery post (as well as a big one) the small wire should go to
to the body,make sure the body ground is clean and tight.
If that doesn't work,I'm thinking the "rpm" meter ground

It could be that your syncro for the reverse gear is gone. Which would have to be brought to a tranny shop not a do it your self type of job.

SOURCE: rough idle on 1990 saab 900 convertible, 16V

Because the car has adaptive technology, it may take a while to reset and adjust to the new, cleaner and better conditions than those to which it had previously adapted.

Did you change the cap and rotor? if the plugs needed replacement, likely they do too

Possible other causes include:

loose or corroded connections to any electrical component you disturbed (make a checklist and tick them all off as you check them);

mis-reinstallation of any F.I. part disturbed(checklist again)

obstructed water flow through the AIC valve;

improper voltage output from the AIC valve (for LH 2.4 systems, should output 8 volt at idle, dropping as load increases; for LH 2.4.2 system output 7 volt at idle etc; testing between terminals)33 and 17 at disconnected LH connector;

possible problem with MAF.

Hope this helps

1990 honda civic wagon starts but idels irratically and turns off


This problem 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 idle control

Engine light is still on after we have replaced numerous parts


The engine light is on, Have u checked for fault codes? To check codes, pull back carpet on passenger side of car to expose ECU (electronic control unit) at 'foot' location on that side. There is a small LED display at the top of the unit, turn the key on (not running) and check for flashes, u must count the flashes to determine what codes are stored in the computer. Short flashes are for codes 1-9, two digit codes use long flashes for the 1st #, followed by short for the 2nd. There is a pause between codes, so there may be more than one. Check and let me know what u find.
