It is kinda rare but look at the mass air flow tube . Make sure that its not cracked , dry rotted or loose. When you put it in gear the engine/transmission mounts will allow a little too much movement due to old or bad mounts. This excessive movement causes the tube to crack.
Next time you start the vehicle have the hood up and while its idleing move the flex tube around . If it idles up/down or dies the tube is cracked. Good luck

SOURCE: 91 camry starts and shuts off when put in drive or reverse

I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.

SOURCE: 1991 honda accord "no spark"

There is a relay mounted way up under the dash on the driver side. It is about 1"x1"x2" and it says Mitsuba on it. This is the PGMFI relay, sometimes called the main relay or fuel injection relay. It is very likely the problem. You can buy another one, or there was a bulletin on how to repair it. You need to take it out, pop the cover off, and resolder the cracked solder joints on the pc board that the relays are mounted on. Really not that hard if you have a little soldering experience. If not, just buy another one, about 50 bucks.cb28323.jpg

My 89 honda accord lxi with the 2.0 won't idle correctly, it idles up and down and when you first start it up in the morning it idles about 2500 rpm or higher.


air in the IACV (idle air control valve) coolant line - air bubbles in the coolant will confuse the iacv into incorrect idle settings.....even when hot, and a fault in this unit will do the same thing, very very common fault in a honda.

The idle drops when i put it in gear almost stalling the engine


That is normal, in park or neutral there is no resistance on the engine when you put it in gear there is resistance because the car wants to move. Also when you turn on the ac that turns on the compressor that is run off the belts of the engine so it puts more resistance on the engine. Low idle is not a problem unless the engine dies.

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. :)

1983 honda acc cold start wont stay running when cold idles rough


try checkin your idle air control. most of the time it is a vacuumn line going into intake.pull it off and if the car revs up dont worry, it wont hurt it. if it does simply put it back on, if it dies you have a bad vacumn.
