Best check under the hood for a loose or broken vacuum line. The fact that the stalling started occurring right after the cable was repaired, would lead me to believe somebody may have disconnected a vacuum hose while installing the cable, or knocked one off, or broken one. If you can't see one that is broken, or loose, start the engine, and wiggle the hoses around while listening for a "hissing" sound. Let me know how you make out.

1989 Honda Accord Dx which Idles @ about 4250 rpm for about 5 minutes and then shuts off completely unles at this point I'm pressing the accelerator.


sounds like the idle air screw needs adjusted out on the carb, to slow the engine.. did you just get the vehicle, and trying to fix it up, or is this something that just happened??

I have a 1989 Honda Accord LX automatic trans. When you start the car the rpm go up to 3000, generally once the car heats up you can tap the accelerator and the rpms will come down, but this is not working...


the idle surges if this is the case take out the air intake tube that leads to the throttle body, get a can of carburetor fluid and spray around the throttle body. You will need someone to start the car and hold the gas peddle to 2500 rpm while you do this the car will shut of when you do this, restart the car and repeat the process until half of the can is used up. Now check your antifreeze level fill if needed.

Dies out and when you push on the gas it dies and will not stay started - have to power brake when idleing


if it is carburated it sounds like bad accelerator pump in carb, or plugged fuel filter. if you haven't changed the fuel filter recently i'd start with that.if that was done than you may have a bad carb accelerator pump. needs rebuild or replaced.

Just installed new carb in my 1989 honda. Used diagram to connect vacuum hoses back up, but car idle speed is too high - up to 2,000rpm. What could be wrong?


try turning down the idle via the idle adjust set screw (usually on the carburetor base). if the problem persists after the engine is warmed up, there may be an issue with the automatic choke. also check the throttle linkage by disconnecting it to see if it is holding the throttle open when connected. if this is the case, you may need to adjust it or find a slightly longer cable.

I have an 89 Honda Accord lx and it idles too low


The idle speed for my 88 accord lx is 700-850 rpm for standard idle speed. The stalling is a seperate issue. When were plugs, wires, air/gas filters and distributor last checked? How long has engine been running for when you stall? Is the temprature gauge high? Any lights coming on when stall occurs? I am not a mechanic, but a DYI'er. These are common questions I am always asked when troubleshooting my Honda. :)

89 honda accord lx with carb. is burning too rich or using to much gas.


your honda needs carborator service and tuning, if you want to do something by yourself than remove the airfilter case and find a small screw on the carburator, at the backside, turn it clockwise to reduce the gas ratio
