Should have minimal slack when cable is pulled by the pedal. You will have to set it by feel. Cable will have nothing to do with fuel mileage, or how it runs. It only controls the throttle blade in the throttle body.

CHOKE CONTROL VALVE 1987 HONDA ACCORD LX


If efi it will be controlled by the cpu settings. If carby it may be either electric element heating a bimetalic spring or heat from the maniflod. Eother way the adjustment will be by loosing off the screws that hold the cap in place and turning the cap slightly to increase spring tension or release spring tension. The direction is imprinted in the cap with arrows.

Why is my Accord chugging when I accelerate and the check engine light coming on ?


The fuel filter is probably full of metal too. (fuel starvation) replace it.

Well i just replaced my head gasket in my 1999 mitsubishi galant 4cylinder and made sure my timing was correct and starts up right away but then suddenly stops so im beat i dont know wat to do next? should...


What you describe is very indicative of timing being off. Its not spark plugs.

Double check your timing and balance belt set up. Its possible to get the timing off enough so the engine starts then the ECU "realizes" that the sensor inputs are very wrong and shuts off the engine.

Is the hydraulic belt tensioner locked down BEFORE you install it? This is required (a large vise or press is required to do this). Once fitted and the tensioner bearing is locked, the lock pin is removed.

Fan Blower working, just not getting any cold air


The tensioner pulley is not turning??? Have you been burning up belts left and right?? Is the belt tight against the tensioner pulley?? You need to check to make sure that pulley is operating correctly. Are you getting good charge out of your altenator?? Is it hard to turn do to lack of power steering?? Have you thrown the belt multiple times?? If that pulley is not spinning there is only to causes for this. Either the pulley is froze, or there is no tension against the pulley. If the pulley is frozen you should be burning up belts often. The tensioner pulley spring is broke and not holding the proper tension. The belt might still be rotating, but the belt will not be rotating the other accessories attached like it should be. My chrysler van has a dual belt set up and yes if the tension pulley is not moving then you will be lacking the rotation need to make the ac compressor operate properly.

Need to know the right tension setting of the accel. cable of a 98 accord lx vtech cant seem to set it right im burning to much fuel and car is running crappy


Honda does not apply a specification for this.

Tight enough so there is no slack, but not so tight as the throttle is held open.
