#1

have an intermittent stall problem with the honda. has always happened within a mile of starting up the car and only in hot weather (live in the northeast) and never under acceleration. i had it in the driveway today and ran the engine up to 3000 rpms, paused and let off the accelerator. a couple of times the engine dropped below the regular idle speed and shut down. any ideas?


#2

I would clean the throttlebody.
Use search for your model,its easy to do.


#3

If spray cleaning the throttle body doesn’t cure it, try cleaning the Idle Air Control Valve.


#4

replace the fuel filter. it’s a cheap replacement. then if that does not work you need to have the fuel pressure tested.
