Question about 2003 Honda CR-V
I used a code reader to find the problem, purchased the sensor, and now I am discovering that it will mean removing the throttle body? I can do it but I want to be sure that is the problem before I start.I have read that- TP sensor is often missdiagnosed, throttle body has to be replaced (can't remove the TP sensor), and that it may be a loose/dirty conection. The idle is irregular, the rpm's are up too high at times, loss of power.........any feedback would be helpfull at this point. I have even been told that I may just need to clean the throttle body out due to possible fuel contamination. Please help...eager to get started on something!
Try cleaning the IAC (Idle Air Control valve.) by buying spray carb cleaner and removing the air cduct from the engine. On the fuel system side look into the hole and try to locate 2 holes on the side . With the engine running at about 1200 rpms, spray about 10 seconds worth of cleaner at the 2 holes. Turn the engine off. Let the cleaner soak. Then repeat procedure. The IAC can also be removed and cleaned if you wish.
