I had a similar problem once. I recommend replacing spark plugs, spark plug cables or the distributor cap (if parts look worn-out of course).

stalls can be cause by at least 50reasons (and more for parts bad)
the #1 reason from 1920 to now, never doing tuneups.

bar none. !
ill list (not a guess) the top three not tune up missed.
1: egr leaks. clean it, but is in the service sched for 50k on most cars made.
2: timing belt slipped.
3: isc sticking ,clean it.

the 50 ways are all under misfire, misfire causes too low RPM at idle
and has 50 failure paths. I can post the link, to the ways.
but will not.

Honda accord 1997 se,when sitting at stop light car jerks continuosly,need help!


This sounds like the engine is not idling correctly or may have a misfire . first make sure check engine light is not on and then have it scanned for any codes, the thing you need to do is when it starts to **** put it in neutral and watch to see if engine idle is reving up and down, let me know. good day

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

If you get rough idling or the tachometer needle does not stay in one place when idling then you may have a dirty or faulty idle air control valve. This is a common cause of the problem you are describing. Other issues could be dirty MAF sensor or loose wires or vacuum hose.

I NEED HELP MY HONDA ACCORD EX WAGON IS TAKIN TO


if you have no misfire and the engine idles good then the egr is not your issue. most likley your 02 sensor is the reason only if everything else has been checked out and to be deemed to factory specs. Its all really juist a guess if you don't want to get it professioally diagnosed. You just wasted money on a part that you didnt need. It could of paid for a proper diagnoses instead. One needs a data scanner to access the computer. There is no other wy.
