Honda Civic the idle on car idles up and down manly when stopped


When an engine just idles fast and slow, it's usually a vacuum leak somewhere. You can spray on the hoses carrying engine vacuum to see the leak.
Hope this helps.

Engine will not idle. runs very fast. will not run slow.


Don't leave the engine running that way - it can be quickly damaged. There is a "governor" that is designed to keep the engine from running too fast. Take off the hood, find the carburetor and look for the throttle lever attached to it. One end of the lever will be attached to a cable that is pulled by your hand throttle. The other end is supposed to have a spring attached and that goes to the governor. If the spring just popped off, put it back and see if that fixes it. If the spring is broken or missing, replace it. If the spring seems OK, look for debris jammed in the mechanism that the spring leads to. If there isn't anything obviously wrong you will need to take it to a mechanic unless you're prepared to do some deeper mechanical work. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

If you can lower the idle with the grip than it appears the return spring isn't working right or its missing. If you have an injector fueling when it is not supposed to be, that needs to be addressed before you ruin the rings and brgs. or get squished. I'm looking at it being a bad return spring. It should go to idle on it's own when you let go the grip.. Good Luck and ride safely. Ned

When I start my jaguar, it idols at a fast speed but then as it warms up it will idol fast then slow, fast and slow and keep doing so


if it is a v12, and at idle when warm if it goes up and down then you need to rebalance the throttles, they are off balance causing the idle to raise and drop.
set the butteryflys behind the air cleaners to 2 thousands of an inch using a fella guage and make sure the linkage arms from the pedestal in the middle of the engine are set the same (one is not longer than the other)
