Problem Prelude Turns off when in idle after driving

Hello to ll, am new here and recently fixed my prelude, so this is the history this car was in storage for about almost two years, the engine had to be reworked because the timming belt broke and so did the engine :), so now i have fixed the engine but as alot of details that need to be fixed, one that has me worried is the fact when i turn on the car and leave it in idle it doenst turn off it only turns off when i actually start driving it and start to brake and when its going down to 1 rpm it wants to turn off, i need to give it gas so that it wont tunr off, any advice that can help thanks

Sounds like the timing is off, either that or you idle control valve is kaput although when they go, it's usually keeping the car started thats the issue, not getting the engine to stop.

Okay ,first what yr is it , does have a check engine light on ?,how much miles on it?, make sure your thermostat was change ,along with fresh coolant ,and you should change your fuel filter,and add some fuel injector cleaner ,also you may need to take out the iacv valve and your fitv clean them and adjust the fitv valve there is sticky thread some where here ,or you can google it .Hope this was little helpful later.

Re: Problem Prelude Turns off when in idle after driving

Ya i Have the same issue on my 93 Lude VTEC with 205k miles. I let it idle for 2 hours and it just idled at 1200-1300 rpms. It was great. Then when I give the car some gas when the rpms come down it bogs really low. Sometimes rebounding and other times not. Not a cooling issue cause I replaced everything cooling... I think its something fuel related... Also something to note, the gas thats in it has been in it for a year. But I think its injectors, fuel pump, or something like that.

I would drain the fuel as a precaution and then look at fuel filters etc too (didn't realise it'd been stood for a year lol)
