ENGINE REVS UP AND DOWN WHILE IDLING

1998 Acura EL • 4 cylinder FWD •

1998 acura el 1.6 only 178000 kms. You step on the fuel to go and engine seems boggy; another issue was engine revs up and down while iding, sounds like its whistling

The engine bogging down could be due to ignition or fuel problems and if a tune-up hd not been done, that is where you should start.

The surging could be due to low coolant level, faulty IAC, clogged coolant hoses to IAC or vacuum leakages.
