Rough idle when a/c on

Recently I had a new radiatr & A/C fan installed in my 94 honda accord. All during a repair of an A/C leak. Now when I'm stopped at a light, with the A/C running, the car idles rough and will sometimes die.

    Problem recently started a few days ago. When the AC is on and I stop at a light the idle is rough. RPMS jump up then down, the car has not stalled as of yet. I first suspected dirty fuel injectors so I bought injector cleaner and added it to a full tank of gas. The problem seemed to lesson but has not been resolved. I can't think of anything that would have thrown my timing off. Another thing, my car has been really quick when hitting the gas from a full stop and now I am noticing a few second stall before the power kicks in.

    When I step on the gas the car accelerates very roughly. Like it's straining for oxygen.

It is normal for your car to idle down when the ac pump cuts in just have your timing checked and adjust your idle as necessary at about 750 rps at normal idle with ac off also just make sure they havent overtightened the ac belt and pulley.

My 94 honda accord is idling up and down when in park or neutral whats the problem


hello, i just had the same problem. i have a 94 accord 4 cyl, and the rpm would sit at 500at normal temp. i cleaned the iacv the ficv. there is also a screw under the throttle body( i forgot what is is called, but you screw it back in), that seemed to help for my fluctuating idle problem. i recently changed my pcv valve and now my rpm sit at 1000. so i think that you need to change out your pcv valve. only 2.99 at autozone. hope you found this helpful

My 94 honda accord ex idles rough when i come to a stop with the brakes applied , almost like it dose when the ac is on.


You need to start using high octane gasoline. Yes the 96 or the 93 not the 89. It costs a little more but it is worth it as it is better for your car and it runs better idling. The brake pads sound "rough" they probably need to be replaced or switched/flipped. This is a cheap and easy task. It may shudder from the fact that it is getting force feedback from the brakes.

94 accord ex. rough idle. wants to stall.


If it was running fine prior to putting the new exhaust on, then there is either a restriction in the exhaust causing too much back pressure or something didn't get hooked back up.

good luck

I have a '94 accord LX 5-speed with 111k miles. When I drive above around 70ish mph, the car starts to run a little rough, it begins to shake a little. There is no CEL light on and the oil was just...


Seem like you need to have at-least the two front tires high speed balanced. This shaking at high speed is most likely due to the tire being out of balanced. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
