Have Honda Questions? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
Hi, I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't knowyour skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand thatI can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace arepair shop.My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return formy time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know youdidn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.
The best thing to do in a case like this is scan the computer for codes and related data. The idle air control motor on the throttle body may be the problem. You can take it off and clean the carbon out of it and also clean the throttle body to and see if that helps.
Yes, it should give data with the proper tool and software. God only knows how much that costs:)
Try putting on a coolant temp sensor. These can be real brats if their out of calibration too hot or too cold reading. If you have a lab scope, that's even better than the scan tool. See attachment.
Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on. Ron
