Question about 1992 Honda Civic
This problem is caused by a sludged up intake idle speed control valve to clean it follow these instructions.
, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

You need to clean the FITV valve, the IACV valve, AND the throttle body! NOT how the man above was describing THAT doesnt work! I've tried!!! No dis-respect or anything, Not trying to put him down just saying!!!
