These are fairly easy and straight forward to replace.

  • Start by removing the cable from the accelerator pedal. Climb under the dash and locate the cable at the back side of the pedal near the top. The cable is similar to the brake cable on a bike that has a knob at each end of it to retain it on the component. You can remove this by turning the cable so that it can slide out the notch on the side of the bracket and slide the knob out.
  • Next remove the cable from the throttle body. This is done very similar to what you just did under the dash. Turn the round bracket attached to the throttle body that the cable is wrapped around until the cable is loose and you can slide it through the notch in the side and slide the knob out.
  • Remove the cable from the mounting bracket. There are two 10mm nuts that lock it into place on the bracket.
  • Trace the throttle cable back to the firewall and remove it from all of the retaining clips.
  • Pull the cable through the firewall. The rubber grommet will come with it.
  • Install the new cable in the reverse order.
  • When you are re-installing the two 10mm nuts near the throttle body, these nuts are used for the adjustments. When the cable is installed on the throttle body, it doesn't need to be really tight, in fact there should be a slight amount of play in the cable. You can use the two 10mm nuts to adjust this.

Good Luck!

1991 honda civc DX, what does twenty short blinks on the ECU mean. car is idling fast while cold and warm. what does that mean?

1991 will have a throttle cable for this car i would have thought ,just not familar with this what is obviously a american market model and possibly even a californian spec so this is way out of this europeon mechanics league .But if it does have a idle control valve then its possible that the ECU is faulty try measuring the voltage going to the valve ,4 wires and it reverses the current to go backwards or forewards ,so two wires go one way and the other two make it go the other way ,use a multi meter and see what you get ,also check the brake servo as if a diaphragm leak the it will **** in air making it idle high

I have a 1991 honda civic hatch with 1.5 engine idles fast cold and hot and ECU flashes twenty times

Hi Jason, I suggest you take the vehicle and have a diagnostic scan carried out. Doing that will pin point the problem area and take out the guess work. I have known occasions when someone has tried to adjust the throttle butterfly, hoping to reduce the idling speed and by doing that have taken the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) out of the correct adjustment, causing abnormal idle speed. Regards John

Hello i have a couple issues with a 1991 honda civic it vibrates a lot while in drive and even more when in reverse and has a slow rate of reaction/acceleration when you press the pedal this only happens...

Assuming the idle speed is correctly set. Check for worn out or broken engine and tranny mounts. replace as nessesary. Check for any stored diagnostic trouble codes stored (count the blinking red light on the computer under the passenger carpet.) Check ignition timing, and also cam timing, the t-belt could be a tooth off causing the lack of acell or it could be an internal failure in the transmission. Check the throttle valve cable at the transmision for proper operation and adjustment. There's a few ideas to get you started. Lmk how it goes.

My 1991 honda civic dual point injection the iddle runs fine but when suddenly I accelerate the motor there is a sudden exasperation or what lokks like is going to stall and then the motor picks power all...

If your Honda is naturally aspirated/carbureted, then your only problem is the fact that the diaphragm that squirts gas into the venturis is not operating. Maybe just need to replace said diaphragm or maybe just an adjustment to make it squirt sooner is all it may need. This initial gasoline squirt is what keeps the engine from dieing when you stomp the throttle. Understood?
