SOURCE: Idle fluctuates

Its could be a few things. Most likely cause is you IAC (Idle air control valve) If this valve gets clogged up with carbon it will cause a idle surge on cold starts like you are describing.

Next your FITV (fast idle thermal valve). When the hot wax inside of this valve starts to wear it will cause a idle surge on cold starts.

SOURCE: My 1998 acura CL stops while I am driving. It

have the ignition switch checked. When this happens does the speedometer drop to zero?? Is there some warning lights "not lit" when the vehicle stalls?? If yes to either of this, its a ignition switch failure. You may also try starting the vehicle(if possible) in the park position, and shake the key while engine is running, it should die(sometimes it may not even if the switch is worn). Hondas/Acura models years 97-02 were recalled in 2002 for this issue. The internal contacts in the switch encounter excessive arch/shorts due to poor design and too much power running through it. This causes intermitted power failure to vital engine/vehicle electrical components, causing the engine to shut down/stall. This progresses in hotter weather!! If this is the case, contact your local honda/acura dealer with your VIN# at hand for recall info and possible free repair. Otherwise the switches range from $45-$95 at advance or autozone. Hopefully this helps...please rate....thanks

97 ACURA 3.O L STALLS ALL THE TIME


Could be the ignition switch, if the green key light is flashing then the issue is the switch. There was a recall issued for the ignition switch for this car back in 03 for the 97 to 99 Acura CL.

Wont keep idle, car stalls out


I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.

1998 3.0 Acura CL Shut off electronically


There is a known issue with the ignition switch on the 98 Acura CL 3.0. The ignition was recalled by the manufacturer. This happened to my 98 CL as well. Since it was a recall, Acura may replace the ignition switch for you at no cost, not sure though as they announced the recall in 2003 I believe.
