Car feels like it wants to shut off

I have a 93 Honda Accord, and when i slow down or come to a stop the car feels like it wants to shut off. The needle on the RPM is always down instead of being slighty above?

I am fairly certain it is the idle air control valve, you did not mention your mileage but idle air control valves typically wear out at about 100,000 miles to 150,000 miles.

    It is the electronic idle control the pintle inside moves in and out and over time it builds up carbon on the tip, this does not allow air to flow through it properly. Unfortunately your car is OBD I and not OBD II otherwise you could check pintle opening with a scan tool. A car should be diagnosed before just throwing parts at it and hoping it's the right one. remove the idle air control valve and inspect it first if it has cabon builup buy a new one trying to clean it won't help. Your fast idle valve is for starting a cold vehicle only, before it gets into closed loop operation, so this is not your issue. If you need assistance removing and replacing the part I would suggest purchasing a Mitchell manual for your vehicle it's the best $20.00- $30.00 you will ever spend.

Sounds like the idling circuit/controls. Maybe fuel injection system needs a thurough cleaning. I know most auto repair places do a cleaning of the injection system for under $100.

1998 Honda Accord engine rumbles and stops


rumbles?, did the RPM drop below 800 RPM? that is called idle failure
and when it does, idle can go to 400 rpm and will shake hard.
and is normal for illegal idle speeds. so post that first.
post that engine stalls
and that the RPM is 400-500 just before the stall.
then post if the fast right foot can save the stall (a key test !!!!)
if easy the ISC is sticking.
if tad hard the EGR is stuck open'
if impossible to save. then more possible (many)
ever do the 60k mile tune up this decade????,. if not why not./ now.

95 honda accord fan blades


with engine off, grab the fan and shake it to see if there is any play in it. sounds like the bearing may have shelled out in it, causing it to drop down at a low rpm, when engine is revved up at higher rpm, centrifugal force lifts it back up.

No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.
