20 Most Recent 2008 Honda Fit Automatic Questions & Answers

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

I have a 2007 Honda Fit and I had the same thing happen to me. It was soooo frustrating. The first 10 minutes after turning on my car, I couldn't press the break or the engine would turn off completely. It would turn off at stop signs and red lights. But after driving for a little bit, it would break just fine. My husband and I researched a lot online and found a lot of people saying the problem was that it needed a valve adjustment. We were reluctant to pay for a formal diagnosis so we called a couple local Honda dealerships and asked about getting a valve adjustment. They both acted like that was crazy and said Fits don't even need a valve adjustment. I finally took it in for a diagnosis and they called me the next day and said the problem was defiantly the quality of my fuel. They told me to go to Chevron and use Techron. I disagreed with them because I only ever get Techron gas from Chevron so that wasn't the problem. They didn't charge us for the diagnosis but I wasn't going to just pick it up without it being fixed and my husband was sure it needed a valve adjustment. So we took a gamble and had them do it. When we picked it up, it ran perfectly (even with the same tank of "cheap gas"). It's been several months now and it has never turned off on me since! So glad my husband knew what to do and that my car is fixed!

Hi Angela

Increase the idle speed slightly.
If there is no manual idle speed adjustment screw, then it electronically controlled by an idle valve which could be faulty or may be needs to be cleaned only.
All the best

Pull down the lever on the left side of the steering wheel which will in turn lower the steering wheel, then open the cover on the top of the steering wheel, lift open slightly not all the way, then you will see a white lever, press down the break then gently push down the white lever to put the gear in neutral, make sure you put the gear in neutral, remember you have moved the cover from the original position. Hope it helps. God Bless.

If there is moisture on the inside of the glass, there is something moist or wet inside the car. Check the carpet in the car as that will give an idea as to where any leaks, if any, are coming from. The damp could be leaking in through a damaged rubber door seal.
