How To Solve Honda Idle Problems - EricTheCarGuy

Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Before posting questions about Honda idle problems please read this: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/8-Service-and-Repair-Questions-Answered-Here/41476-solving-honda-idle-issues-hunting-idle The viewers have chosen and this weeks video will be about solving Honda idle problems. I'm really not surprised as I get a lot of questions and requests about this very subject. Here are the links I promised in the video that will help you address specific issues mentioned in the video. How To Bleed a Cooling System http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUpXgAJ1gjU How to Check for Vacuum Leaks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CPqbaSgcok Reading Check Engine Light Codes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD05sPclLyE Diagnosing an Overheat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUzOTnsWImI Hopefully when your done checking all that stuff out you will have solved your Honda's idle problem, if not leave a comment or send me a message and I'll see what I can do just make sure you have tried all the stuff in the videos first as that saves me from typing so much. I also want to add my "Idle Speech" into the mix here: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/8-Service-and-Repair-Questions-Answered-Here/41475-solving-honda-idle-issues-rough-idle   There are a lot of things that can contribute to an idle issue, in fact in the end it may still be there to some degree because of the nature of that engine however here are some things to start with. First start with a good tune up, use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs, don't change the wires if they are OE, if they aren't OE you might consider NGK wires as they are very good and less expensive then OE.  A quality cap and rotor should be good.  A new air filter also helps. Don't change the PCV valve, if you see an aftermarket PCV valve in there put a Honda in, believe it or not I've seen idle issues caused by aftermarket PCV valves, the OE's last just about forever so you can easily justify the expense. Next a good valve adjustment, this goes a long way to smooth out the idle if done correctly, mess it up and things can get a lot worse though. While you have the valve cover off check the timing belt tension, if you feel a lot of slack this can cause the cam to 'chunk' as it spins causing a rough idle.  If you think the belt has been on there for some time then you might consider changing it and resetting the tension properly, if it's not ready for replacement you can reset the tension to take up the slack. DO NOT adjust the idle screw under any circumstances, it is set at the factory and that is the reason it was sealed in the first place. If you find that the seal has been broken and you have a low idle and you have done all of the above then you might turn the screw out a little to see if that helps the idle but only enough to try and bring it back to where it was before it was adjusted in the first place. Last clean the screen in the Idle Air Control valve, this can get clogged up with carbon over time and cause the flow through it to be restricted which can cause idle issues. If you still have a 'rough' idle after all of this THEN look to the engine mounts as you want to be sure the engine is running correctly before you go for those as the one in the back is a real pain to replace. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

How To Bleed A Cooling System - EricTheCarGuy
How To Bleed A Cooling System - EricTheCarGuy Kind of a request, I've described this procedure a few times in print but never made a video. As I said in the video if your having issues with a fluctuating idle, no heat, or an overheat problem you may want to start here. Also, if you have just serviced the cooling system in any way this is the procedure I recommend to fill it back up. The only regret I have with this one is the end where I didn't shoot footage of closing up the radiator using the tool that I used in the video, I may show it at some point in the future.

How To Solder Wires Together (Sort of) - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Welcome back kids as some of you might know this video is a companion to the video I did on "Diagnosing An Overheat". This is how the cooling fan got fixed. I realize that some of you out there might be electronic wizards and know how to solder way better than this but my methods work and are way better than using those plastic connectors that just clip 2 wires together. My little tool works good in tight spots too, all you need is some house wiring and some alligator clips to make that happen. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.  ETCG





Easy Rust Repair the 'Hack' Way -EricTheCarGuy
As you may know my 1993 Acura Vigor had some pretty bad water leaks into the trunk due to rust issues. To repair them I needed to do a little body work. In this video I show how to do body work using 'hack' methods to get you by. In order to do this 'properly' it would have been best to cut out the old rusted material and weld in new metal. I didn't feel that my $500 Acura Vigor was worth that effort so I did what you see here in this video. As stated this method works very well for floor pans or other areas where you're not necessarily going to see the finished product. Honestly, I don't think things turned out so bad, in fact, I have a new appreciation for the car now that I've done this work, despite the fact that the paint doesn't' match. Perhaps one day I'll go back and finish it properly and respray the entire car. For now, I have other work to do to keep this car in good working order.
