Question about 1988 Honda Accord 4 Door

2 Answers

Idle problem I have a 1988 Honda Accord LX and when you crank it, it idles high and continues to stay idled high. When driving it does fine, but when stopping at a red light, it goes back to a high idle. When cranking, it idles around 3000 rpm, it goes down just a little bit after it warms up, but it does not go low as it should. What do you think?

It sounds like it could be a distributor problem too. Cause that also controls the idle and timing of the engine.

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. :)
