Our Honda Jazz (vtec, auto) has been at the mechanics every couple of months for the last year with this same problem. When the engine is cold, it idles rough and almost stalls, only when in drive (park, reverse and neutral are fine). When slowing down, close to 1000RPM's, the engine splutters and again almost stalls. Sometimes when taking the foot off the accelerator the car runs smoothly for a bit and then******, almost like it's suddenly switching to a lower gear suddenly. Accelerating, the engine runs fine. We have had the flywheel replaced (no improvement) and have had the valves cleaned (no improvement). After numerous trips to Honda, they keep giving it back with no improvement. When the idling is very bad we also notice the fuel economy drop to less that 9Km/ltr (at the best of times it's not better than 11km/ltr). So we're not sure if it's because of this problem. Any advice would be appreciated
have the same problem?
