I have a 1986 Honda Accord LXI that was originally from Arizona, but is now in NY. At times it runs fine, however:
- In warm weather it will run at a very, very high RPM until the car has warmed up. Approaching a stop sign, I have to really lay on the brakes while it is doing this.
- In cold weather it will run very rough and stall - often stalling at intersections - until warmed up. I have learned to throw the car into neutral or park at an intersection and rev the engine. When starting the car in the cold, it will not stay running without revving the engine.
When I say "warmed up" it does not warm up quickly. At times taking 20 minutes before it will run without problems.
