It sounds like you have a problem with your idle air control valve. Also try inspecting your vavuum lines. I had the same problem with my 90 accord, and after inspecting the pcv hose going from the valve cover to the intake, i found a hole in the rubber line. After replacing the line, the problem was solved. Matt
check your cable that runs ur throttle and follow it at the end it has a plastic piece, my friend had a honda del sol and the plastic piece was broke causing the cable to come loose sometimes and idle high then drop then high then drop etc. just a thought
The idle air control valve may be faulty,its mounted on the back side of the upper intake plenum near the throttle body.It has three ten millimeter bolts that hold it in place and you'll have to remove the two coolant hoses located on the bottom of the valve.
1995 Geo Truck Tracker 4WD 1.6L TBI SOHC 4cyl The PCV Valve is located under hood, center, upper engine area, top of engine,
mounted in passenger side of intake manifold.
The low gas mileage and the versatility that your 1995 through 1999 Geo
Tracker offers are two benefits of owning it. The maintenance needs to
be kept up on your Geo Tracker. One form of this maintenance is to
replace the valve cover gasket once you have driven 100,000 miles or
Allow your engine to cool. Disconnect the
negative battery cable. Remove the air inlet hose and air intake case
or air cleaner housing. Detach the PCV valve hose from the PCV valve.
Separate and remove the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable from
and remove the valve cover bolts. Lift the cover up and off. Using a
flathead screwdriver, gently nudge the gasket out of the gasket seating
area. Using automotive engine cleaner and a clean cloth rag, clean the
gasket seating area.
the new gasket in the gasket seating area. Put the cover back into
place. Put the bolts in and then using a torque wrench tighten them. Do
not over tighten the bolts or the gasket will not fit correctly.
Reconnect the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable in the holding
the rubber hose to the PCV valve. Install the air intake case, or air
cleaner housing, and the air inlet hose. Reconnect the negative battery
cable. Add oil to the car and start the engine. Allow the car to run 10
to 15 minutes. This will allow the oil to lubricate the engine while it
moves to the top.
I hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
this problem is caused by a sludged up intake idle speed control valve to clean it follow these instructions. , Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
start with intake manifold cold air intake not a short ram intake performance spark plugs wires and distributor cap, headers exhaust system not a tip.
make sure you have an LSD transmission then pull apart the motor mainly the head change out valves, spring retainers, and springs. new camshafts make sure you buy the springs and spring retainers before you put in the new cams. if you have the money to bore out the block it be better to take your block clean it up and put darton sleeves then buy a new crankshaft new psitons and rods with new rings all of this will cost a good deal but will increase performance a turbo should be the last thing you do increase the motor HP and max it out then put in a turbo but ensure your car is sleeved darton sleeves are the best never had a problem. i used to own a 2000 honda civic si i pushed 239 HP staright motor B16A2 motor. good luck any other questions let me know
The PCV valve can be located in several places. The most common location is in a rubber grommet in the valve cover. It can be installed in the middle of the hose connections, as well as installed directly in the intake manifold.
Sounds like it may be a vacuum line problem...double check all the hoses and make sure none are off or broken/missing. Check over the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve too and inspect & clean it out with carb clean or something, could be that the valve's sticking
