Possible injector failure. locate by disconnecting injectors one at a time. The one that makes no change is the questionable. Status of spark plugs need chkg also. pull the plugs an the one that looks washed is questionable good luck

Stop putting ETHENAL based fuel in your vehicle, it eats up the fuel system, ask around, it's true.

I have a 1996 Honda accord lx 5 speed. When I let it idle it drops below 500 rpm and almost stalls out. What would this be?


  • Dirty air filter or bird nest in the air intake
  • Broken vacuum hose or fitting
  • Worn plugs or bad wires (will run rough; exhaust may smell dirty or have raw gas odor).
  • Clogged fuel injector or fuel filter; failing fuel pump (will also run poorly at high power demand)
  • Bad throttle position sensor or dirty throttle body - inspect any idle air bypass channels.
  • Bad or misadjusted idle air solenoid (I'm not sure if it's used on this model; you'll have to check to see what engine you have.)

These are the first places to look. If the Check Engine light is on, getting a diagnostic readout may save some time in your search for the problem.

Idles runs really rough can smell fuel


1. Could be changing the fuel filter
2. Leaking injector
3. The gas cap (tank gas input) is clogged - Gas tank does need some air
4. Pressure check you gas line - should be in the 20s and hold steady for hours. Could be slow leak

Runs rough at start up,then runs okay, Hesitiates momentarily when moving from a stopped position. Occasionally wont start and runs rough, then runs okay. This problem is intermittent


you have a bad injector, if you have A... as it states on the top of the motor 2.8, 3.1 L MULTI PORT and dies or idles really rough and the exhaust smells like strong gas. most likely you have an injector that has shorted or is shorting out and from my experiences usually after a road trip or using fuel injector cleaner or buying a used car. it will cause half the motor to not run or run poorly VERY POORLY or even burn out 1 injector fuse out of 2 under hard acceleration or idles but as soon as you touch the gas pedal dies. but only if it is a MULTI PORT fuel injected motor. ive heard you want to try and replace them with bosch injectors out of a 2.9l ford bronco/ranger. only attempt if you got the mechanical know how sometimes if not done right will leak gas because of the injectors being kinda different length. research before attempting.

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.

89 Accord LXI Idle problems


It's fuel infected and it has a vacuum leak, most likely a PCV valve that is stuck open, I've seen a few now. Replace the PCV valve 1st, if that doesn't fix it, start looking for a hose that has come off.
