    So, where is this located, is it easy to get to at all? Should I be able to just open my hood and see it to tap on it a little?

    Is the idler air control easy to get to?

  • Aron May 17, 2009

    Yes, I know where the intake is because I have an AEM on it, but, I think I saw that in the back of it. How much would this be to replace, in any circumstance of having to replace it?

The idler air control is not working like it should. try tapping on it with a screw driver lightly this should kinda fix the problem while u are tapping. This will need to be replaced if it starts agian after u stop tapping.

1992 civic automatic idles okay when cold engine, but idle fluctuate 800 to 2500 RPM when engine hot


" Hunting" is usually indicative of a faulty temp sensor or air flow meter telling lies to your computer.
It can also be vacuum leaks, however these are usually apparent even when cold.
Male sure you don't have any air locks in your cooling system.

Idles up and down after warm, but goes away in reverse and drive. 1993 honda accord


I had the same problem with my honda. On the throttle body there is a screw that controls idle speed. If your idle speed is around 800-1000 rpm in neutral, tighten the screw a quarter turn each try until the idle speed is around 1500 RPM. Did this stop the idle?

Honda civic hatchback idles really high


The person that told u that it was the tps and idle air they we're completely right!! The tps sensor is what makes it do that. If you pull the air intake of there's 2 holes on the throttle body. Plug one of the off with your finger while the engine is idling high and it should come down mine was the top hole. If it does go down just get a new tps sensor. and the back sensor on the intake to be safe. or the ghetto way is to plug the hole off, not my sugestion.

1991 honda civic hb si please help!!


Sounds like it may be a vacuum line problem...double check all the hoses and make sure none are off or broken/missing. Check over the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve too and inspect & clean it out with carb clean or something, could be that the valve's sticking

Engine idling varies depending on light or aircon is on/off


dude its normal for first start or cold start that the idle is ok but it must high than normal... its normal because the engine is warming up it self... when it gets warm, the idle speed will return normal idle... your engine is 1200cc, it has not much HP for a great load... and i know its a carburatored engine and its an old engine, your head lyt and a/c fan and aux fan and all the electrical system on your car, uses the HP of you engine and its a lot of load to the alternator driven by the engine to generate an electricity they need and thats why the engine rpm speed lowering down to dead and its shake. thats why when you use your lyts or all electrical, you engine is weakening... the best remede is adjusting you idle speed... its located behind the carburator.. its a small black knob.. just make a twist each eighter way and you'll find out if your idle rpm speed ts incresing or decresing.. just increase it and try opening your lyts and other electrical, if its still shaking then adjust it a little more
