If the throttle body is dirty or if you have a vacuum leak, or if the Idle Air Control Valve is bad, these will all cause high idle.

I have a 2007 2.0L Honda Accord. I notice that there is alot of vibration when the car is idling; even when i put it in Park or Neutral. I would be grateful for any suggestions for dealing with this


Try cleaning the throttle body with carburetor cleaner. It could have carbon buildup causing it to run rough. I hope this helps and a can of carb cleaner only cost less than $5.00.

It will be located on the throttle body. You should be able to find a suitable throttle body or carb cleaner at your local auto store.

Sounds like you may have disconnected the battery. Does the rough idle only happen when the defroster or A/C is on? If so clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaner with the battery disconnected. When finished, drive it for 5 or so miles with the defroster / AC off to let the computer relearn the settings. This will solve your problem.

My idle is running as high as 3000 rpm while driving. When stopped it sometimes comes back to normal. I suspect idle control valve????


It could also be carbon build up on the throttle body, but regardless the cure is the same. Your going to need to clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve (IAC). With a can of throttle body cleaner, (follow instruction on the can) clean the throttle body blade and the IAC passage way in the throttle body. Once the throttle body is cleaned, with the engine off, turn the ignition key to the on position (engine not running) and wait for 30 seconds and then turn if off for 10 seconds and then start it. This should reset the IAC, if it did not work do it again and see if it helps. If not clean out the IAC passage way again. The turning on and off the ignition reset's the IAC and it may still be stuck with carbon build up. Once the engine has started, Note there will be lots of smoke form the tail pipe, that's normal. It's just the left over throttle body cleaner and carbon being burn off, take's not more then 10 min to burn off. Good luck and this should keep you from replacing the IAC. Oh and don't use Carb cleaner, Carb cleaner is to corrosive to the throttle body gasket.

The throttle body is where the carburetor used to be, in the middle top of the intake manifold where the air intake tube ends.
Use a major brand "Fuel throttle body cleaner" in your gas tank every 6 months or so. Don't use store brand. Ther eis also a spray for the linkage, etc. Use that too... and spray into the throttle body with engine running. Don't let the engine die while spraying into the throttle body.
