Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Poor runing,hard start, 4000 rpm tops

Have to crank 3 or 4 times before it will continue to run. idle rpm vary from 300 to 1000. checked timing and balancer belts and all marks appear to be lined up; checked and set valves, new plugs, wires, rotor cap, computer, compression from 13o to 150 When I put pickup for timing light on wire one or two, i get a flashing strobe like you would expect, when I put pickup on 3 or 4, I get a pretty solid stream of light. The D4 light for the shift indicator flashes on and off. Cpu does not throw and codes. Rpms will not go above 4000 and it takes it a while to get up to that. Car will run for 1 to about 5 minutes and quits when it feels like it.

    Throttle position sensor was bad also the previous owner had put on a computer for a standard instead of an automatic.I also replaced the fuel filter. Car runs fine now.
    Don't feel bad though. After running a diagnostic check on the car the Honda Dealership said the map sensor was bad and the map sensor was fine and they totally missed the throttle position sensor problem and took 10 days to do that.

Mitsubishi dion poor idle or rpm stops at 4000


tuneup time skipped? the 60k miles tuneup?
scan it? if there are DTC errors, it might in LIMPHOME mode, with RPM limits dropped for good reasons.
or is misfiring. that too can be felt or seen with the scan tool.
the poor idle proves its running bad, no other symptom better prove this. its misfiring, only queston is , why.
50 reasons
or 1 to 10 simple tests to find true cause, ask.
after a full 60k tuneup,(repeats)

Falls on face at 4000 rpm in any gear/ wont idl


Why did you replace all this gear if you hadn't determined the cause?
Carry out all the first step checks before you spend any more. Check all the cylinder pressures. Check the timing with a clip on strobe. Mark the crank pulley with typing fluid to get a good reflection. You should see the basic degree mark at idle then when revved up a bit(2000) you should see the mark move away from the idle position as the revs increase.
Have you checked all the smog equipment, a small vacuum leak can cause a poor response. What colour are the plugs? Are they a nice coffee brown and all the same? If not then there is a further clue to poor running. You don't say if it's auto, then check anything connected to the trans.

Do as many checks as you can with a few tools and some help and if that fails to reveal anything then seek more knowledgeable help.

How to set idle speed of toyota yaris


no year, no joy (3 generations and 3 base designs)
first off all modern cars there is no idle set.
that ended back in 1988 with carbs. USA, all my posts are for
USA Cars, if you are not USA< then now the time... to say so.
on EFI cars, the idle is controlled by the ECU at all times.
its one of its major hard jobs.
and is the last thing top work right on all EFI cars.

so, to work on any car, the first thing is to
open hood and find out which of 6 engines, it has.

that is first. after checking all fuses)
the 1999 is the first car, and all 1999+ here are OBD2 engines
and ECU controls idle. totally. at ALL times.
post the symptoms ???

1: what year?
2: what engine. there are many.
3: is the CEL , check engine glowing running
yes, then scan it, to see the DTC errors.
4: is idle to low, say RPM hot or cold engine.
5: is idle too high, say rpm ,hot or cold
6: is idle out of control , varies. hot?


why not post the symptoms and let us guide you on the correct path.

Have a 1999 dodge dakota sport 4 wheel drive with a 5.2 liter motor 158,000 miles my problem is every 3 or 4 days when i go to start it it in the morning will not start after about 5 or 6 times cranking...


a vehicles crank shaft sensor sends a signal to computer, as to tell what revolution the crank is on. you may not get a check engine light. check injectors for leaking in to cylinders, it can cause an excess amount of fuel in cylinder. this may be causeing the no starts and flooding smell. if it starts good warm then check the injectors for leaking. good-luck!! you may also have a bad coolant tempurature sensor. symtoms of a bad cts are--poor cold idle, stalling, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage. ( will also ****** timing). its hard to say with out being there, so check out above. good- luck!!

I have 2002 audit quattro TT with 180k miles. When I do a normal acceleration the car surges and rpm drop but pick back up. If I accel hard it runs fine. Also at idle at times it varies 200 rpm like a


this sounds similar to a problem i had. as the rpm went over 2000 the engine would stop for a split second and then kick back in.
after a few days looking my garage finally found the problem was a faulty air mass meter.
this cost me £200 in total to be repaired.

I have 2 Problems: running poorly and my AC


For Problem 1, I have a 02 9-3SE and had/having similar problems. RPM & turbo gauge flucuate at red light. I think the mechanics did a fuel system clean up that solved most of it. Occassionally it's still doing that to me, not as bad.

Since this is an intermittent problem, first try to determine if the problem arises due to one of these many intermittent problems:

* Vehicle vibration
* Heat sensitive
* Freezing
* Water intrusion
* Electrical load
* Cold or hot start up

If you can't isolate the cause of the intermittent problem, you can try adjusting the Idle Speed/Ignition Timing/Idle Mixture Ratio:

Idle Speed/Ignition Timing/Idle Mixture Ratio Adjustment

PREPARATION
1) Make sure that the following parts are in good order.

* Battery
* Ignition system
* Engine oil and coolant levels
* Fuses
* ECM harness connector
* Vacuum hoses
* Air intake system
* (Oil filler cap, oil level gauge, etc.)
* Fuel pressure
* Engine compression
* EGR valve operation (If so equipped)
* Throttle valve
* Evaporative emission system

2) On air conditioner equipped models, checks should be carried out while the air conditioner is OFF.
3) On automatic transmission equipped models, when checking idle rpm, ignition timing and mixture ratio,
checks should be carried out while shift lever is in “N” position.
4) When measuring “CO” percentage, insert probe more than 40 cm (15.7 in) into tail pipe.
5) Turn off headlamps, heater blower, rear defogger.
6) Keep front wheels pointed straight ahead.
7) Make the check after the cooling fan has stopped.
