Question about 1997 Honda Civic

Open Question

1997 Honda Civic. When I start the car in the morning, RPM goes to about 2K and goes down really low and almost stalls. When the car warms up, everything seems fine. Sometimes it happens at random.

SOURCE: Hard Shifting 1997 5 Speed Honda Civic Manual Transmission

I asked a Honda repair technician and he said that it sounds like the throw out bearing and due to it's location, we are looking at a $1,500 repair.

For a manual transmission, if you open the hood and look to the left of the engine on the side near the bottom of the engine compartment, you will see a large nut that, if removed, is where you put your gear oil, but that did not help me. If you have an manual, look up gear oil and there will be a diagram.

2003 honda civic lx will start but no power trying to drive down driveway and antitheft light is on


that's a good one,
is engine RPM above or below, 2000 RPM in the A/T Drive selected
if cant get there, weak engine
if goes way highter, that is transmission slip.

the RPM is key
in the FSM see page on A/T for transmission stall test
it takes 1min, to setup, pass or fail (test is 15sec. max , never more. )

I have a 97 Honda Accord that stalls in warm/hot weather after it had been sitting in a parking lot for 6-8 hours in the afternoon; never in the morning and never in the evening. It usually starts right up...


there's a main relay or fuel pump relay located under the dash on driver's side. this relay goes bad all the times. it usually goes bad when you leave the car in a hot sun, next time keep your window down to see if it will start.

Under 2000 rpms runs bad/hesitates/check engine light


This IAC valve runs only when your foot is off the gas pedal. Mainly to keep the engine from stalling and keeping it at a safe RPM. If it is running bad under 2000RPM, more than likely its the IAC valve or a vacuum leak. Clean or replace the IAC valve....Hopefully this helps!!

Civic '92 engine normal starts then stalls after 2 mins


Ihave the same experience try to remove the idle jet located next to the starting jet. But be careful in removing it as it will break easily ( you will need a flat screwdiver to do it ) clean it with a wire that closest size of the jet. change your fuel filter ang drain all the fuel inside before putting it back. make sure to put some air pressure on each holes on the carb so it flush all unwanted particles inside and pls dont use silicone in sealing the rubbers inside.
