idle

  1. The 8th Generation
    My 08 Accord while driving idle will fluctuate up and down about 200-300 RPMs. What would be causing that? Also, when I start from a stop it kind of sputters or struggles and most of the time hit it so it goes through the gears quicker if that makes sense. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    I have a 2005 Accord Hybrid with 130k miles, and over the past several month it has been experiencing misfires occasionally at idle with blinking CEL. This only happens when I first start the car, as soon as I step on it the misfires go away. It also doesn't seem to misfire once the engine is...

    Hello everyone! I bought this awesome Accord Coupe V6 02 last year and I love her so much. However, I have some problems that I can't manage to fix. When I start the car on a leveled surface or with the nose facing downwards, I get a bang and it doesn't start smoothly. Also, when I'm idling...

    I have a '01 V6 Accord that has been sitting for a few months. Fired it back up and the idle hunts from 1100 rpm to about 2000 rpm. I've read on this forum that the Idle Air Control valve seems to be a common culprit, however, most of those threads have a code thrown. I'm not throwing any...

    I purchased a 2000 Honda Accord EX 4cyl for my son as a first car from a lady that had it sitting for 2yrs because the clutch was out. it started fine and engine ran smooth. After replacing the clutch we replaced the coolant sensor as it was providing no reading. works now. But now when you...

    So I noticed that my AC is sub par when I'm stopped at a light. It doesn't seem to be blowing any cold at all. However, it's strong when I'm on the highway. When I briefly looked into this last fall, the AC fan did seem to be running when stopped. Anyhow any suggestions where I should start...

    I've got an 06 Accord V6 w/at. It idles fine and smooth. While driving and trying to maintain a speed below 70 with foot just a little on the gas, it will have a vibration and act like it's getting too much, or too little gas or air and less responsive when stepping on the pedal. It has done...

    All, I have a 2007 SE sedan with the 4 cylinder and a 5 speed and 119,000 miles. Never had an issue with the car since I bought it new. One week ago, when the temperatures were below zero, I got a check engine light after starting up. The only other noticeable effect is that the idle was a...

    If your car has a surging/bouncing/rough idle and you have checked coolant, cleaned or replaced IACV, throttle body gasket might be your last shot. My story: After cleaning the throttle body and IACV, my car began to idle erratically. It would start at 1.5k rpm. But after a couple of minutes...

    Greetings, I apologize in advance for not doing thorough searches, but I have done some cursory ones. *I am stuck using slow Internet in a remote area from a mobile device that makes it difficult to do anything online. *I also apologize for being so long winded, but I want to give you as much...

    I just changed the sparkplugs on my 2001 accord with NGK plugs. After the changed the car idles around 500 rpm where before it idled around 800. I replaced the plugs without a torque wrench and wanted to leave them looser rather than strip the threads. Could this be the cause?

    Hello, New here to DA, but not car forums. I've got a 03 Accord DX Sedan, I4, 5MT, 125k Miles. Great car and barebones. One of the very few gripes I have with this otherwise tremendously reliable car is that anytime I run the A/C the car seems to idle particularly rough (idle speed being...
