Rpm does not drop below 1000


No,only on carburated engines it,idles down to the set point,on yours,it's fuel injected,pushing gas pedal won't kick idle down,should go down after a certain amount of time,does it automatically,If you start and drive a 5 mile ride and stop at a stop sign,it should idle at it's set point if there's no engine problems,which may be.5 to .7 on your tac.When you normally first start,it will idle between 1000 to 1200 rpm's,don't push on gas,let idle say 15 seconds,put in drive and go.

There is a coolant passage that goes to the idle control system. The idle control itself is not bad. Cleaning this passage will make it normal again. I have fixed a 95 honda accord this way, and a 97 honda accord. You will need to remover the whole assembly. Actually the whole rapair doesn;t need parts so thats good news for you. Be carefull since the idle control is made of aluminum, and can be damaged easily. I damaged the one I was working on, thankfully I also have an aluminum mig welder so I was able to repair it like new.

2003 Honda Civic runs hot when idling.


Check the cooling fan switch. It appears your auxiliary electric cooling fan isn't going on when at idle. and engine temp increases. While you are driving, air is being rammed thru your radiator as you cruise along, so it isn't overheating, at idle, that isn't happening, and the fan should go on as the temp goes up. When the ac is switched on, the fan is being signaled to operate due to the heavy ac load on the cooling system.

Idles up and down but runs fine only does in nutruel


Here are some of the causes of surges up and down at idle, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
