96 Honda Civic: belts squeal at idle

My belts squeal at idle, but when the rpm's rise the squeal goes away. I haven't isolated the problem to anything specific but it seems to happen when it's hot outside.

    loose/worn belts. check the deflection - should be about 1/4" if you dont have a tension gauge.

Idles up and down after warm, but goes away in reverse and drive. 1993 honda accord


I had the same problem with my honda. On the throttle body there is a screw that controls idle speed. If your idle speed is around 800-1000 rpm in neutral, tighten the screw a quarter turn each try until the idle speed is around 1500 RPM. Did this stop the idle?

Roaring noise when car idleing


Quite possibly the air conditioning compressor clutch bearing. I've seen a couple of these go bad now. Have the belt removed and see if the noise goes away.

Idling problem when ac turned on honda civic lxi 1999


Hi,

To my knowledge (at least in my country), some Honda Civics have a compensator solenoid the pushes on the throttle that adjust the engine's RPM to its standard idling when the A/C compressor is activated. Technically, this solenoid is nothing more but a coil and a plunger. When the compressor runs, the same relay activates this solenoid and pushes the plunger forward increasing the RPM. Pls check/clean/adjust/replace as deemed fit and necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
