H22A4 Idles up and down Help!!!

Well I have a 98 Prelude SH

RPM Idles up and down ...sounds like the engine is Breathing and snoring!!!
NOt only that,, water is spitting out from the exhaust.
/// I know its water because it has no color of anitfreeze, and its not black smoke coming out.

///It comes out white smoke so i know its not oil.. AND!! i had two former mechanics look at it, saying its water/moisture.

Okay!! I have a cold air intake. . and i exposed the cover under so that i could get more air!! anyways i had the car at honda dealer and i'm guessing those bastards probably test drove it the day it was rainy and probably ran through a deep puddle..

so thats probably how water got into my engine.. well thats all i know.. please help!! thanks guys!!

Re: H22A4 Idles up and down Help!!!

water in your engine would cause more than misfires. pull your plugs and see how they look

Ur seeing moisture coming out of ur exhaust because #1 its getting cold out, #2 when u start ur engine when its cold out it instantly creates moisture in the cylinders and then that gets blown out. If u let it run for a bit i guarantee ull see it go away

Re: H22A4 Idles up and down Help!!!

your idle going crazy is either from your IAC valve going bad.... or ... fast idle air valve. the second one is usually the culprit. easy fix.... its a sensor that is bolted to the bottom of your throttle body. two vaccum hoses go to it. you can do something called the COOLANT BYPASS MOD>

if you still have trouble understanding lemme know i ll get a better write up for you.

Get your FITV out and twist the valve all the way in, it'll stop the bounce..

Hmmmm...Im new myself, but if its dripping....can you try to seal it? If its cracked...JB weld does wonders. Little things like that would help. IF its that bad....gotta go replacement. Try OEM, ask around and see if anyone has one up for sale. I know this is gonna make me look bad, but Im tryin to help...but check up on ebay. Just make sure its legit and not some POS part. Hope this helps a lil and I hope you get your ride up to par!!!!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!
