1988 Honda Accord Idle Problem...

Unread post by dusabrive » Tue Feb 18, 2014 1:11 pm

I own a 1988 Honda Accord LX with a carburetor; When I start the car, it races at @2200 rpm but when the engine is finally warm the idle drops like a rock to just above zero; It runs at that level and doesn't recover. Why won't my engine idle between 900-1,000 rpm?

Thank you.

you might want to check your choke, choke stat. a common problem with older cars is the thermovalve getting stuck on Hondas.
