    sprayed links and carb but butterfly flap still stays open after high rev goes down and then stalls. is there a way to adjust the butterfly flap cause when closing it with fingers it feels like something is holding it back into the open position.

It might just need cleaning. Spray some PB Blaster around the throttle arm where the cable connects to at the base of the carb, and see if that frees up the flaps. And while spraying, fiddle with the throttle linkage.

I have a 1989 honda accord,it will start and idle high.but,when you kick down it will not idle,it has a 2brl carb. on it.


I ran into the same thing on my mom's 89 accord.... I thought it was the choke..... but I found out it was a vacuum leak on a vacuum line.... I found it by spraying carb cleaner on hoses lines with car running it don't take a lot just spray a little and if the engine revs up more you know where about the leak is and can inspect it.... check the intake around the carb and vac lines too...

1992 honda accord dx when its idleing it will rev up and down for no reason I took off a vaccume line next to throttle and it idled could this line be clogged?


yes or possibly more likely hose may be collapsing from the vaccum...inspect...also check throttle position sensor,idle control valve.mass air flow sensor, or possibly (map)sensor.any one of these could cause your problem.start with (map)sensor they are a comon trouble maker.

1983 honda acc cold start wont stay running when cold idles rough


try checkin your idle air control. most of the time it is a vacuumn line going into intake.pull it off and if the car revs up dont worry, it wont hurt it. if it does simply put it back on, if it dies you have a bad vacumn.

1986 Honda Accord DX - too high idle on cold start


1986-1989 Honda Accord with Carburetor have a very bad habit that is little known even by most mechanics but easily fixed at home. The vacuum port on the choke opener that is connected to the intake manifold and both vacuum ports on the fast idle unloader get plugged up with nasty hard carbon almost as hard as metal. When this happens the choke sticks closed and the idle sticks on fast idle when the engine is cold and nobody can figure out why. All you have to do is attach a small drill bit to the end of a flexible socket-driver extension and put it in a variable speed drill that will let you run it real slow and carefully drill out the vacuum ports that are plugged. After they are nice and clean use a vacuum pump tester to make sure the choke opener and fast idle unloader are working before putting it all back together. It's amazing how much better the car runs after cleaning out those ports.

Idle too high on a 06 cobalt


when you clean it make sure that you hold the butterfly open so you can get the spots clean that need it. If there is anything in the way the butterfly will not close. Just a small bit of dirt will do this .
