Id check the fitv and whenever i put my finger in the car idle low which thats what i want.The tb gasket is fine.Can i replace the fitv or i have to get a whole tb?Also is making is noise like a supercharger (whistle).
I would suggest turning the idle screw as well. If the car is otherwise normal, and you turn up the idle too much via the screw, it will begin to "hunt" like that. The other cause of hunting is usually a vacuum leak.
Here's my super crx idle and tuneup formula:
new PCV valve
clean or replace rotor/distributor
clean the IACV
clean the throttle body
clean the fuel rail
replace fuel filter
replace injector o-rings
check grounding wires
sea-foam in the gas tank
clean O2 sensor
set valve lash
All those little things add up to a smoother ride...on thier own, none of them are really difficult to do.
I've also seen some info on adjusting the TPS voltage, but havent done it yet, so I cant say if it'll help.
I drove my car back home and it still doing the up and down sh*t.So id stop at the auto part and i picked up some vaccum hoses and id change the iacv to my old iacv and now idle like a brand new car.So i think i had a leak on the vaccum hoses but i could see it.THANX FOR THE HELP GUYS.
I am building a EF I have a D15b2 block with a D16y8 head.
I have the engine together and in the car already.
I ended up using a gates water pump kit with y8 timing belt.
When i went to time the engine it looked ok but I assumed i
could compensate with the dizzy if i had an issue ( I was wrong)...
Hello! I have just purchased a 1999 Honda civic EX 5-speed with 85000 miles. It was previously owned by an elderly couple who garage stored it, and only drove to church, grocery store etc. It's mint condition, 100% stock. I love the car, but it's SO SLOW. No power at all unless I Rev it past...
Need a second opinion here:
I have an 89 CRX Hf that had working AC, not amazing, but it worked. I assume it was R12 as there were no converter nipples going on.
A while back someone hit let head on, broke the radiator and mangled the condenser, but didn't rupture it.
I decided since I was...
ok the b18b1 in my hatch has been acting a little weird.
It has been idling really low and turns of at stops usually.
Sometimes can hear a noise i think its valves ticking but not sure. It's not a deep enough tone to be a knock, I think. Other then that it drives fine. I did a compression test...
