I just recently swapped a 90 f22 motor to a 93 f22 for my honda accord. I checked all vacuum hoses and there is no leaks. The problem I am having is when I goes to stop and push in my clutch my car revs up at 3000 rpms and stays there till I let out the clutch slowly then it goes back down. Also, the motor was a automatic then I switched over the flywheel and new clutch kit(stock). Could it be the screw on the accel cable? Any ideas?

Check for a sticky acceleration cable, check and clean throttle body, check for codes, not all codes set a MIL, check cable adjustment and IAC system.

Well, I think your right. But im thinking that the screw that adjust the lever that the throttle cable hooks to needs to be lowered because it used to be automatic. When I rev the engine it doesn't go down fast enough. And if I let go of the gas its like it stays idle/going still not real fast just enough that I have to brake and I shouldn't. Do you think it could be the screw?

Disconnect the idle control valve (2 wire plug) and re set idle speed at the screw, connect the valve again and re test idle setting.

Do u mean the timing belt? If so no I didnt with a light. But I did have a friend that works on hondas and he said it sounded like it was good. And should this idle control valve be the 2 wire plug hooked fuel injector manifold or whatever its called right behind where I hook my air intake in?

No. But I have a book and it says it cant be adjusted by the distributor is this correct? If so I have moved it and I think I got it where it needs to be. The problem with checking it 100% is I don't have a timming light. Any suggestions?

Yeah sounds like it. But thats the only other thing that u think it sounds like? Just the ignition timing? And that would cause my engine to rev like that?

What you need to do is get these basic adjustments correct and then see what is going on, no use looking for stuff that may not be a problem.

I will. Also do u think if I replace my speed sensor/IAC could that be why it is revving like that? 2day I drove it around for about 30 mins and my check engine light came on after I was in netrual for about 5 mins? Also, if it helps. If I let go of the gas pedal its like it feeds it a little fuel and if I go down a hill it speeds up faster and faster till I hit the brakes?

Ic motor may be faulty, make sure that the throttle cable is free and the throttle body is not sticky in its operation.
