Honda civic stalls at intersections.

My 1997 Honda Civic stalls at intersections. How can I increase the idle speed or is this not a good idea. What else should I do? I replaced the air filter, gas filter, plugs and wires.

Idling problem when ac turned on honda civic lxi 1999


Hi,

To my knowledge (at least in my country), some Honda Civics have a compensator solenoid the pushes on the throttle that adjust the engine's RPM to its standard idling when the A/C compressor is activated. Technically, this solenoid is nothing more but a coil and a plunger. When the compressor runs, the same relay activates this solenoid and pushes the plunger forward increasing the RPM. Pls check/clean/adjust/replace as deemed fit and necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
