Hi

this sounds like an air fault, most likely cause will be the air flow meter or also known as a MAF sensor. you can clean this and often they work again. this is located within the air pipe system, has a plugged wire going into an air pipe.

If you need more details get back to me
Regards
Dan

Idle problem integra


check the MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure). The ECM (car computer) uses that to keep idle at minimum 750 RPM. It's normal for it to run high when cold. These small 4 banger motors typically run hot, and they won't run right IF they're NOT running hot, ergo the idle is usually high when it is cold so as to cause it to warm up quicker. If the RPM's drop below 750, suspect the MAP sensor, &/or ECM.

Sorry to tell you this my friend, but you did overheat the engine. You should have stopped at first warning that the car was hot. The knocking sound is warning of no oil(or not enough) in your car. Now that you have cooked your bearings, seals and gaskets, your car will never be the same again. The solution would be new(or replacement) engine or get a different car.

Self-adjusting idle brain often idles 1500-2000rpm range.


Faulty oxygen sensor or low fuel pressure can also cause these codes to be set. I'd go for a fuel pressure test when acting up if at all possible just to confirm I have pressure needed. Have heard of coil problems as well. Should be a good blue 1" min. spark from coil.

Not reving high on cold start


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, 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
