There are many solutions but I suggest simply adjusting the idle screw on the throttle body for now. Looking at the car, follow the from the air filter box (driver side in engine bay). You will follow a large black tube up to the engine. Where it becomes metal is the throttle body. Look for a large flathead screw in a hole facing directly upwards towards the trunk on this. Adjust it counter clockwise to increase idle, clockwise to lower idle.

If your mechanically inclined, this will be easy and in-expensive. Check all co2 sensors and the in-take air sensor. In-take air linkage may need adjustment. If your not mechanically inclined, I recommend you take the car in to a dealership for a OBD analysis.

Why does my 89 justy die when i slow down?


It could be any number of things. The MAP sensor is bad, a severe vacuum leak, the fuel filter is plugged, it needs a tune-up like new plugs & wires etc., the fuel pump is weak or leaking if its a manual one. If the car runs rough at idle have a vacuum test done also, while the car is running at night, open the hood and see if the plug wires are arcing as you will see what looks like small lightning sparks around the wires. The worst case scenario is the piston rings are shot causing poor compression. A repair manual is usually available at the local auto parts store, or shopping center like Wal-Mart and Meijer.
I wish you the best of luck.

I have an 89 Honda Accord lx and it idles too low


The idle speed for my 88 accord lx is 700-850 rpm for standard idle speed. The stalling is a seperate issue. When were plugs, wires, air/gas filters and distributor last checked? How long has engine been running for when you stall? Is the temprature gauge high? Any lights coming on when stall occurs? I am not a mechanic, but a DYI'er. These are common questions I am always asked when troubleshooting my Honda. :)

1999 Acura 3.2 TL has 87,000 miles changed spark plugs but starting RPM still low about 500; sometimes it takes two starts using gas pedal. Can you adjust Idle or does it need timing adjusted.


You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Adjusting Headlamps


I have an 87 MR2 and this is how to adjust mine. Headlights have two spring loaded adjusting screws, one on the top controlling up and down movement and one on the side controlling left and right movement. The simplest method requires a blank wall 25 feet in front of the vehicle and a level floor. Position masking tape vertically on the wall in reference to the vehicle centerline and the centerlines of both headlights. NOTE: It may be easier to position the tape on the wall with the vehicle parked only a few inches away. Adjustment should be made with the vehicle sitting level. Starting with the low beam adjustment, position the high intensity zone so it is 2 inches below the horizontal line and 2 inches to the right of the headlight vertical line. Adjustment is made by turning the top adjusting screw clockwise to raise the beam and counterclockwise to lower the beam. The adjusting screw on the side should be used in the same manner to move the bean left or right. With the high beams on, the high intensity zone should be vertically centered with the exact center just below the horizontal line. NOTE: It may not be possible to position the headlight aim exactly for both high and low beams. If a compromise must be used, keep in mind that the low beams are the most used and have the greatest effect on driver safety. I typed this out of my "Haynes Manual 1985-1987 Toyota MR2 Book. I would think it would be the same method for a 1989 also. Hope this helps you. Redheadedwop
