1991 2.0 Si Idle/Cold Start/Starting/Irritating Problems

Ok so when I start my car it will idle under 500 Rpms until it dies or warms up. My mechanic said he thinks its has some type of cold start problem and that he hasn't worked on one in ages so he will have to do some research. Please if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Try diagnosing this yourself: the FINAL idle problem thread!!!!!

It could be solved in that thread above or you could adjust your idle screw. Download the online manual which is located in the 3rd gen resource guide.


...& that's some excuse coming from a certified mechanic.

I have the same problem, very hard to start when cold. but when it warms up it will start fine throughout the day... ive replaced dist. cap and rotor, coolant temp sensor, plugs wires. the main relay clicks so i know thats working. any ideas ive read a bunch of threads reguarding this problem but have never got any answers. it also does not idle high when is colds either
