Either the carb is misadjusted, or you have a vacuum leak somewhere letting in unmetered air.

I would like to change a carburated 89 accord to fuel injection.


Unless you have a junk car to get ALL the parts to swap. its not worth the time and money. From the fuel tank, lines, int manifold, distributor, wiring harness, vac hose harness, computer, ect, the list goes on. If it runs OK leave it alone, If not, find another car.

My 89 honda accord lxi with the 2.0 won't idle correctly, it idles up and down and when you first start it up in the morning it idles about 2500 rpm or higher.


air in the IACV (idle air control valve) coolant line - air bubbles in the coolant will confuse the iacv into incorrect idle settings.....even when hot, and a fault in this unit will do the same thing, very very common fault in a honda.

I have an 89 Honda Accord lx and it idles too low


The idle speed for my 88 accord lx is 700-850 rpm for standard idle speed. The stalling is a seperate issue. When were plugs, wires, air/gas filters and distributor last checked? How long has engine been running for when you stall? Is the temprature gauge high? Any lights coming on when stall occurs? I am not a mechanic, but a DYI'er. These are common questions I am always asked when troubleshooting my Honda. :)

89 honda accord lx with carb. is burning too rich or using to much gas.


your honda needs carborator service and tuning, if you want to do something by yourself than remove the airfilter case and find a small screw on the carburator, at the backside, turn it clockwise to reduce the gas ratio

1989 accord lx, idles high at start-up, now it won't stay running


Carburated engines of that year may have an idle screw adjuster. You can see the screw from the outside of the carb. If so, try adjusting the carburator with a screwdriver. Unlike fuel injected Engines they can be manually adjusted.

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.

I have a 88 honda accord with carb that i cant get to idle down


Should be an idle adjusting screw on the side of the carburator that you can adjust to move your idle down.
