I have a 1988 Honda Accord with approx. 200,000 miles. I've had it for about 4 years and it's always been an excellent car, with the exception when it is cold out. Upon starting the engine(only during cold weather) the idle is slow and rough- with some light grey exhaust and smell of un-burned fuel. After letting it warm for several minutes the idle then shoots up to between 3,000 and 4,000 rpm's and does this for another several minutes. Eventually everything smooths out and it's back to running great again. Any ideas? Is this a problem worth fixing considering it's 18 years old with 200,000 miles? I love the car. Just not during wintertime :)
Any info/advice will be appreciated. Thanks
have the same problem?
