Answering Idle Problems!!

If your car is running...
-High idle before your car warms up, above 1500-1800rpm
-Lumpy idle
-Roaming idle
-Hunting idle
-Fluctuating idle

1st -This can be a problem with your IACV (Idle Air Control Valve), This is located Right off the intake manifold. Pull the IACV off (10mm) and Clean the ports with Carb Cleaner from any local auto parts store. *Make sure your car is cooled off before takeing the hoses off! heres a link the FINAL idle problem thread!!!!!

2nd -Your FIV (Fast Idle Valve), Causes the same symptoms of your IACV. Its located below your Throttle Body. take the bolts off (10mm) Alittle hard to get to but you can get it off so keep at it. This has a screw like thing inside if you see thread than it needs to be screwed back in and could cause idle problems. Heres a Link *** How-To*** Clean Your FITV aka Fast Idle Thermo Valve - Honda-Tech

3rd -Your ERG valve could have carbon build up inside the ports. pull This off (12mm) clean the ports and pin every good with carb Cleaner, i would buy a new EGR valve gasket also i did.. Link How to: Clean your EGR Valve

If these dont work you can always try putting a new fuel filter on it see if it helps a little. All of these need to be Cleaned at 120k Miles!

*Hope this helps some of you guys out!
