You cant, idle speed is computer controlled. if theres a problem with the idle speed have a shop that does a lot of Honda's check it for you.

How to check the idle speed? my car stalls at the light


Hello Patricia Kennedy.

Besides a dirty air filter... listed below... idle air control valve... the idle speed is pretty tamper proof...

If the car has not been tuned up RECENTLY... that would be a STRONG recommendation before fine-tuning the idle speed.

The problem I am seeing ALL OVER the web... is the idle is too fast... (absolutely will cause STALLS).

All things being reasonable... your tachometer should show an RPM OF 650 to 1000 rpm... above that is quite EXCESSIVE...

A real TUNE-UP MANUAL would be required to properly set the SPEED ... but only after EVERYTHING had been serviced, cleaned and replaced...

Tuning up a car with DIRTY FILTERS & WORN spark plugs is an WASTE of MONEY!!

What I am seeing EVERYWHERE... is a HIGH IDLE problem... (above 2000 RPMs... That will ABSOLUTELY cause your car to stall at a STOP... because your TORQUE CONVERTER is designed to lock up (quit acting like a clutch)...

If your idle speed it above 1000 rpm... that WAS a BIG RECALL issue for GM engines...

Check out the links below... a high idle can stall an engine better than a low one...!!

Comment me back if I am not being particularly clear... or wwatch some of the videos I have attached.

Good luck.

I have a Honda civic LX 2009 and the RPM is 700. I understand that the normal RPM is 900. What could be the reason of the lower RPM on my car? Thanks in advance for your comments


I think the idle, in gear, should be about 750 rpm, definitely not 900. If you are looking at the tachometer, it isn't that accurate visually. a scanner should be connected to get an accurate reading. A little vibration at idle is not abnormal. But you might try adjusting the engine mounts to eliminate it.

Increase then decrease idle when engine is cold especially


cold engine idle surge. (problem)
RPM range of surge not stated
300-700 or 800 to 1500? (range is critical to diagnosis)

bad fuel
running summer fuel in winter (running old fuel?)
needs a tune up bad, see the list in the operator guide.
idle speed controller,sticking or EGR valve same. (clean them)
location not stated, so cant guess about local air temps.?
no other symptoms, lack of engine power? etc?
was it ok last week, or better, when was the last time it was OK?
1week, 1year?
surge , causes, on a tuned engine might be:
1: too lean. so lean the ISC can not control idle. rpm low, stalling
2: too rich, flooding, stalling, spark plugs foul (look at them)
3: weak compression in 1 or more cylinders.
4: bad spark.
5: air leaks, in the plenum causing , ISC to lose control.
why high RPM?

especially?
well that means it fails hot too.
and there is a simple tests. for hot surge.
is engine fully hot? 180F and holds solid there?
say rpm is about 800
and you turn on head lights, heater fan and (not AC) and defrost.
the RPM must hold or the ISC is failing.
ISC -= idle speed controls. (all EFI has this function)

Come to stop truck wont idle it shutts off


That's a very high rpm for an idle! It should be between 700 to 9oo rpm. This truck needs a tune up, at least!

Hi there, Please be informed that sometimes RPM is unstable. Sometimes it's almost 1000 sometimes about 800 or less (in the same conditions: without A/C, lights,...) It is slowly fluctuating and...


I'd start by replacing fuel filter. I'm assuming it's been recently tuned.... If not, replace plugs, wires, all fluid & filters and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.
