Question about 1992 Acura Vigor

Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle

My 1992 Acura Vigor starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle speed is extremely low as opposed to the normal 2,000 RPM, however once the car warms up it seems to run fine. However, intermittently while driving the engine light will come on and then the car starts to run very rough and almost stalls at stop lights unless the idle speed are kept up. On warm mornings the car exhibits no problems. What's the problem?

Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

Check the "crank position sensor". If bad car will stumble, hesitate and stall. Usually happens when any load on electric system is involved. (Like A/C, defroster, cabin fan...etc). You need a diagnostic machine to confirm. Be sure because it is a challenge in labor and part is $$.

What are Reasons why ac not blowing cold cold air 1992 acura vigor

Most likely in a vehicle of that age is that the refrigerant has leaked out due to bad seals in the compressor or in the connecting lines. Have a professional check your refrigerant level and test the operation of your compressor clutch.

A/c cool not cold. I want cold is that r12 or 134a.

originally it is r-12, but it may have also been converted to the r-134a the difference is the type of connector attached to the high and low side of the system.

Ok, not sure about the starting thing, but the top radiator hose is telling you that it is going to blow.  There is probably a soft spot in there that is weak and is just waiting to blow on you one day when you can least afford it!  I would fix that ASAP.  Hope this helps that part of your problem.  Thanks for an honest rating!
