    Autozone said it has no error codes to read. The check engine light is not on.

Have you checked your air filter? You should clean your throttle body with some solvent like throttle body cleaner. Your car will stumble at first to start but after a few trials it should simply start and run fine. These are the simple things that you should try first before you think that problem is complicated.

Keep posted about how it goes. Good Luck...

RPM problem


Check and lube the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve,

This tiny electric motor is mount on top valve cover and close to the accelerator cable.

The function of IAC motor is to idle up the RPM when more load is added.

Example: A/C on,light on,stop light on and radio on.

A stuck IAC can be free by few soft tape on the body of the motor.

To lube the worm gear,you will need WD-40 to free up the old grease and lube white lithium grease.

Clean the electrical contacts with CRC electric part cleaner.

This electric motor is very expensive.

Please handle it with care.

95' accord 4cyl quit running suddenly,will not start


Low coolant will make the AC work harder but should not shut the motor off. Start by checking the battery, plugs, plug wires, distributors, fuel filrter, fuel injectors and idle air control valve.
