Hi,

Is there any check engine light ON? If yes, you need to take the car to the nearest autozone to get the error codes.There is no charge for the same. Once you got the codes, you need to tell me and i would be glad to provide you with some pointers.

Usually, i have found the problem to be IAC valve. Cleaning them with carb. cleaner normally takes care of the issue.

Let me know,once done.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Most common cause is the engine breather pipe is perished or blocked ,this breather runs from the engine block to the inlet manifold ,i dont think a vehicle this old has a steeper motor or anything fancy on the inlet manifold like a newer vehicle so just look for the breather pipe and check it out first

SOURCE: Erratic idle surging at idel and in gear 91 honda accord LX

Sounds like an idle air control valve issue. these can stick open and cause surging. That would be my first step.

SOURCE: 1990 honda accord surges at idle, what can cause this?

It is likely a vacuum leak (from a hose or the intake manifold), or a sensor is not working properly (like the throttle position sensor, MAF sensor, idle air control ).
Spray carburetor cleaner around suspect areas to find a vacuum leak. The spray will be sucked into engine and raise idle. Spray around the intake manifold where it mates to head for leaks there.
Also check for trouble codes. Maybe a sensor threw a trouble code.
Good luck.

My 94 honda accord is idling up and down when in park or neutral whats the problem


hello, i just had the same problem. i have a 94 accord 4 cyl, and the rpm would sit at 500at normal temp. i cleaned the iacv the ficv. there is also a screw under the throttle body( i forgot what is is called, but you screw it back in), that seemed to help for my fluctuating idle problem. i recently changed my pcv valve and now my rpm sit at 1000. so i think that you need to change out your pcv valve. only 2.99 at autozone. hope you found this helpful

94 toyota camry has low idle and stalls when in reverse


Idle adjustment should be @600 to 700 RPM with the car in gear and emergency brake on if the car is an automatic trans. Adjust idle accordingly. If a standard the idle should be @ 650 RPM at idle.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord LX which idles with a "surge" while the car is in park...the "surge" goes away when you put it into gear. Any ideas?


On the throttle body, that's the part where the throttle cable goes on, will be a screw. might have a plastic cap covering it, remove cap, and with screw driver turn screw in there to where it will idle where you want it, that the idle mixture screw.
