Seems like the coolant temperature sensor is giving the computer erroneous readings, and it is not adjusting the fuel mixture properly for cold engine operations. You should have the check engine light on, indicating this malfunction. The idle fluctuations are normal. The engine is trying to die, from the improper cold mixture, and the computer (ECM), recognizing low idle speed, is sending it back up. Another possibilty is that the butterfly on the throttle body is not closing completely, to allow richer mixture needed for cold starts.

Hi i have a 98 honda accord lx and i wanted to know wether it was my trammy or the clutch because when ever i do a rolling stop or if i had jus finished backing up nd as soon as i put it in drive and press...


I had the same problem on a 1998. The computer controlled mixture at idle is not working right, and idle is dipping below 700 rpm. The culprit was a dirty throttle body intake. This tends to foul the plugs as well, after a few minutes of idling, so i would recommend changing the plugs after you have the system cleaned. The problem is intermittent because at high engine speed, say 3000 rpm, the plugs clear up and work normally.
