My 96 Honda Accord EX, with a VTEC engine has this idling thing going on and I am unsure why. It's been doing that over a year or so, and a few months ago the "CHECK ENGINE" light came on. The car was parked in the garage, I had to let it roll out onto the drive way to get better lighting for recording before I started the car. If anyone has any idea of why it is doing it, please let me know in the comment section. Thanks!

How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems.
This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum
leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the
engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under
the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be
sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want
to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray
bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you
don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine.
For more information on diagnosing engine performance issues, check out
this article I wrote.

97 honda accord idling problem
I've been having idle problems since i bought this car. I've done many
things to try and fix it and all its done has decreased how server the
problem was. I found and fixed all vacuum leaks, replaced the Fast idle
control valve, cleaned the EGR ports, done a full tune up, cleaned the
IACV, adjusted the base idle when needed, and even put marvel engine
cleaner thing in the gas tank. Anyone with knowledge that could help me
leave a comment. I really would like to avoid bringing it to the shop.
