Question about 1998 Honda Accord
Try this first:
1. Start car (have someone sit inside to hold idle if need be), but let the car idle on its own if possible. (replace fuel filter before anything, it is usually located on the driver side, just behind the rear tire.)
(see step three before doing step 2) 2. You will want to locate the MAS, Mass AirFlow Sensor. This is on the air intake. Find your air filter, and follow it toward the intake (center of engine). About a quarter of the way up, you'll see a small black rectangular box. With a screwdriver handle, or other small, lightweight tool, tap on the sensor. If the engine fluctuates, or dies, it needs replaced. If not, it may only need to be cleaned. You can purchase MAS cleaner at the auto parts store. Follow the direction on the back of the can. If this does not fix the problem, then replace the sensor.
3. If the MAS does not fix it, and the idle is still rough, check the distributor cap and rotor (if equipped), as well as the coil wire (center of distributor cap, follow to coil). If the rotor looks warn, is white with build up, as well as the points on the inside of the cap, replace them both, as well as the plugs and wires.
4. If step three does not work, proceed with step 2.
