Idle problems

I'm not sure if this is normal or not, but when I start my car (only a cold start) the idle seems odd. It will first idle at around 1000 rpm, then drop to about 500 rpm, then back up to 1000 rpm, and so on and so on until the engine is warm. I did run Seafoam through my car and it did not solve my problem. My friend suggested it might be an air flow sensor. I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem or if anyone has a solution. If it matters, my car is a 2000 base model Prelude.

Re: Idle problems

its either your FITV or your IACV, these are located on your Intake Manifold and have coolant running to and from them. They can be cleaned and adjusted. Your cold start idle issue is actually common when the IACV is clogged, or when the FITV is out of adjustment. Search the forums for a fix.
