Your fuel tank has a leak which means its getting air or releasing air outside of the fuel tank is why the fuel pump is not working properly because of where the leak is at by this changing the pressure.

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

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.

DIES WHEN I LET OFF OF THE THROTTLE


i recently worked on a 90 civic and i was able to adjust the idle by loosening the throttle cable near the throttlebody (there are a couple of nuts) and adjust it by moving the nuts along the cable adjuster by spinning them until the car idled well again and the owner has had no problems since
(it was not stalling but was very close to it especially at stop lights)
hope this works for you!

well, there has to be a leak somewhere, broski.

Because you wouldn't be smelling fuel inside the car if there weren't.

I'd look somewhere around the fuel pump housing and work my way to the front of the car, personally.

chances are you're getting close to the leak if the fuel odor is getting stronger.

Idle probs


Check your idle control valve. You might have to replace it, 80-90 bucks new. Or see if there is an air leak from the intake manifold. had the same problem.
