Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly

If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

What is wrong with my 1999 honda accord ex if it's uses too many rpm to shift gears?

If it is an automatic, it is most likely slipping & has been for
some time,months possibly & you didn't not notice it

90% of the time, you will have to have the transaxle rebuilt
That will cost close to $2000.00

My 1990 handa accord revs up and down after idaling

It's your "slow ideal valve" It's located on the intake manifold, near the driverside. There are 2 screws on top, remove the screws, Next get a flat head screw driver, now your gonna see a white plastic like saucer shape piece in there.. Now your going to turn the saucer shaped piece clock-wise and your screwing it back down, out the lid/cap back on, tighten the 2 lil screws, and start the car, the up nd low idle is gone..!!!!

How to take out 91 accord engine from the car

Jump in! 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 17mm. There is a hooking bracket on the head near the ps pump and a hooking bracket on the transmission. Loosen everything, unplug everything, drain coolant, pop axles out and lift them both out at the same time. If you're putting another motor in, try to get the same as yours according to external coil or internal coil on the distributor. 90 or 91 is easiest with your car. If not you'll be swapping your entire wiring harness. If you're putting an EX motor in an LX car (or other way around) you'll also need to change the header "o2 sensor is in a different spot", AC pump bracket and AC pump. I put a 93 EX in a 90 LX and it is fine! Extra work but runs great.

Set timing on a 1998 accord 3.0 V6?

Before messing with the timing, get your alternator checked out. Supplying the ECU in a V6 Accord (98-02) can cause some of the same problems you've described above. I had some of the same stuff happen in my 2000 EX V6 and it turned out to be an alt/batt combination. I replaced both and had none of the problems (transmission or otherwise) that I experienced.
