Check for vacuum leaks, with engine at idle, go around engine and wiggle EVERY vacuum hose(especially near connections) you will probably find one that causes the issue to occur.

I have an 88 prelude with a low idle problem. from a cold engine start, it starts with 2000 or higher rpms and then after its warms up it goes back down to ABOUT a thousand but then bounces around eve


Hi Lasbs, Check the ignition timing and adjust with a stroboscopic timing light. The correct timing should be 10 degrees BTDC. If the vehicle is fitted with a carburetor, I believe it needs adjusting correctly, or with the Honda carb, it may be easier to replace it. If the vehicle is fuel injection carry out a diagnostic scan. Also make sure that all vacuum tubes are fitted tightly and that there are no cracks or broken joints. Regards John

Hi there my 1996 honda accord is giving problems in the cold weather on startup. The battery seems good and the starter as well it cranks over just fine but no ignition. The car is struggles to start....


I would need more info on the 96:
when you say struggles to start do you mean it cranks for a long period of time or does it sound weak when cranking.

On the 94:
It very much sounds like the idle control motor. Usually if you let the vehicle warm up in place you can avoid this. take the idle air control off and see if there is a lot of carbon build up and clean carefully.
Most often I opt for replacing the idle control motor.

Remember if this helps, please leave feedback and vote. Thank you and good luck.

My 98 Honda Accord Vtec 4cyl. eng is starting fine, but after start the idle dips a few times and regains for approx. 3min. If I drive without warming up the car will hesitate and the gas pedal will delay...


Seems like the coolant temperature sensor is giving the computer erroneous readings, and it is not adjusting the fuel mixture properly for cold engine operations. You should have the check engine light on, indicating this malfunction. The idle fluctuations are normal. The engine is trying to die, from the improper cold mixture, and the computer (ECM), recognizing low idle speed, is sending it back up. Another possibilty is that the butterfly on the throttle body is not closing completely, to allow richer mixture needed for cold starts.

Where is the pcv valve located on a 88 honda accord Lxi, fuel injected? i'm trying to replace it and can't seem to locate.


Follow the large (3/8 in) PCV vacuum hose from the front of the intake manifold plenum (lg silver box with label PGM-FI ). It turns toward the pass. side then down between intake maifold tubes/runners to the PCV valve.

89 Accord LXI Idle problems


It's fuel infected and it has a vacuum leak, most likely a PCV valve that is stuck open, I've seen a few now. Replace the PCV valve 1st, if that doesn't fix it, start looking for a hose that has come off.

Can't turn the idle down


you have 2 idle settings. one is for cold and one is for after the engine has warmed up. So find the scew that goes to the warm engine idle. turn it down and your set. You might need a Chilton to find what you are looking for.

Acceleration hesitation


This sounds like a shorted spark plug wire or a bad spark plug.
