I have worked on a honda accord with the same problem. The idle control system has hoses and pipes that supply coolant to it. The problem is that the coolant passage to the idle control system is blocked. Remove the small hose and flush it out with water pressure. If that does not unclog it you have to remove the whole idle control assembly including the hoses and pipes that channel water to it and clean them out. Once the coolant is able to circulate through it, you car will idle to normal like it was brand new again. I guarantee it.

My 1992 honda accord is idling really rough. It is bellow 500 rpms what could be the problem?


All you need to do is to adjust the idle air control valve. Its found near the throttle body.

Ensure your spark plugs,wires (ignition coil and spark) and your filters (air and fuel) are within 2 years of installation It's erratic at 800 rpm as the engine is cold and they like the 2200 range for 3 minutes before they kick down on their own. Press the pedal twice before inserting your key. The owners manual states depending on the outside temperature, the engine will require more priming. Update if possible.

I have a 92 honda accord ex that the it idles go


If it does that when the engine is warmed up (full operating temp.) it may be you iac valve, or your fast idle valve. They get gummed up. It also could be your PVC valve, but probably not.:

IAC in red. Fast Idle in yellow. Your PVC valve is plugged into the valve cover (the black hose in between the red and yellow in the picture) it simply pulls out. It should rattle when shaken.
Hope this gives you a start on the problem.

Have a 1989 Honda Accord LX and my idle after warmed up, every time I come to a stop my car dies. I've changed plugs, set idle speed a number of times, it will run good for a few days and then it's right...


If you can keep the engine running with your foot on the gas at a stop it is likely to be the Idle control valve. Older Hondas' have 2 valves. fast idle control (which is prone to cause fast, or surging idle due to vacuum leakage) and the Idle control that takes over from the cold idle control once warmed up. They are located at the throttle butterfly assembly.
