  1. The 8th Generation
    I own a 2004 Accord Ex coupe 4 cylinder manual. I recently had to replace my clutch And throttle body. I managed to change both but now when I go to turn my car on it instantly jumps to 3k rpm. Any suggestions.

    If you know the 7th gen Accords then you'll enjoy this rabbit hole I'm going down! 2006 Honda Accord 4cyl 2.4L LX-SE. 190k miles, this is my girlfriends car, runs great. It's taking about 2.5 seconds of key cranking before the Accord turns over and starts. If it's a cold morning and the car has...
  3. Problems & Solutions
    Hello! I received my 1998 Honda Accord with a strange rig that I need help with. The throttle position sensor has a bad ground, so the previous owner made his own ground (white) by connecting a wire to the frame of the car, then exposed the ground wire (green) that goes to the throttle position...

    So my engine light came on and my bro suggested I clean the throttle body out before spending money on air sensors, I have 112K miles on 2013 Accord (4 cyl). With car off I had my son step on the gas pedal thus opening the valve. He got distracted (shocking) and took his foot off the...

    I have a 2009 EX-L 4cyl AT. Call me an idiot, I know, but I used brake cleaner to clean my throttle body. Ever since this the car has been running weirdly, especially the way it shifts. When I'm slowing down to a stop it downshifts rough, lurching the car forward, or if I let off the gas at slow...

    Recently I decided to do the 3M intake cleaning, of which step 2 required removal of the throttle body to spray the cleaner on the back side of the throttle plate. I was quite surprised to find coolant hoses attached. Not ready for this, some leaked on to the floor. Here's what needs to...

    Hello, Honda Accord 2002 V6 Coupe 3.0L: I'm trying to take the IACV out for cleaning but since the IACV is attached beneath the throttle body, I have to take the TB out first. I read that there are only 4 bolts (actually 2 nuts on top and 2 bolts on the bottom) I need to take out. But after...

    Can I paint the stock throttle body if I tape it off everything and use a high temp epoxy paint? I'm taking it nearly completely off anyway for a spacer recently purchased, I figure now's better time than any. I did a brief search and came up with little. Thoughts and comments please. Thanks

    I've just recently started getting into tuning. I've only had my 6-6 for a few months now. I have a Takeda SRI and just ordered a P2R throttle body and 1 throttle body gasket last night. After doing some reading this morning, my question is: Should I have ordered 2 gaskets???
  19. Maintenance & Detailing
    Hello All, My car just came out of 30k service at Honda Dealer. They recommended Change of Cabin Air Filter which I changed myself. The next recommendation was "Throttle Body Service". Can anyone put some light on how do I do it myself or need to get back to Dealer to do that. It's going to cost...
  20. The 7th Generation
    I'm preparing to do the TSX Intake Manifold swap and I know there are some gaskets that should be replaced when I do it. So which gaskets should I replace? Just the IM gasket or also the throttle body gasket? And which one should I get? I have no idea which TB gasket to get. As for the IM...
