Try replacing Oxygen sensor (top of exhaust pipe just rear of engine; 22mm ring-spanner job after cutting wires); though normally comes up with Code 1 on the MIL, this is the right bunch of symptoms.

    Forget the Oxygen sensor - upon reflection check out the fuel smell; fuel is under very high pressure and the ECU will not like drops in pressure, or injectors getting air bubbles (hence the Oxygen sensor will detect incorrect mixture). If you smell gas, there is a significant leak from somewhere. Start with the fuel filter unions (rear LHS of engine bay - black, with two pipes on top), and work both ways, smelling as you go. Low fuel pressure or bad mixture willl produce rubbish performance and warning lights. Gas is dangerous too!

1994 Acura Legend LS 6-spd. Idle Surging RPMs High & Low and doesn't stop after starting. Continues to do it at each stopping point?


you have air in your coolant. This is a common problem that causes surging idle on the Legends. You need to bleed the cooling system. Have a read here

Well i have a 96 honda accord non vtec f22b. whenever i come to a stop at a light my car idles at about 400 rpms causing it to shake. how do i adjust the idle so that it stays at a set rpm whenever i come...


Before adjusting idle, I'd replace fuel filter and run a good fuel system cleaner through it w/next tank of gas. Note buy brand name fuel and avoid cheap fuel. There's ALOT of questionable fuel going around.

1994 honda prelude vtec speedometer tach problem


Possible speed sensor. I know the speed sensors are a problem with hondas. A new speed sensor is about $200 and can be easily replaced. It bolts to the top of the transmission on the firewall side. Do NOT buy an e-bay one. They are only about $30 but are junk
