The iac or idle air control is sticking and needs cleaned or replaced. to clean just the end of valve do not put body of valve in any liquid. use an old toothbrush or similar to clean. also clean around throttle plate to remove carbon so plate closes all the way.

High idle wont kick down always high idle ?


Depending on the make model and year, it could be a major vac leak. Something may be allowing air to enter the intake and bypassing the throttle plate.

Fast idle wont kick down. it has to be shut off and restarted 2or 3 times. before it will kick down


I believe you will find that your idle air control valve needs to be replaced. This is located on the Throttle body. After replacing the idle air control valve, make sure you disconnect the battery ( either the negative or positive cable ) and leave disconnected for atleast 10 minutes. Then reconnect and start vehicle, your car may fast idle for a short period of time before it returns to idle so is so your ecu relearns the correct postion and resistance reading

My 1994 honda civic wont turn on my a/c compresor. when i switch on the a/c the idle jumps up the down then up then down. anyone know what happening


This is being caused by a low charge in the AC system, the idle is due to the rapid kicking on and off of the AC compressor on the engine, each time the compressor comes on the computer raises the idle and then drops it when the compressor turns off. U have no cooling right? U have a leak in the AC, have the leak fixed and then get the system re-charged.
