I have a 1989 Honda Accord DX (2bbl carb.) 2.0ltr. 4 cyl. Auto transaxel(180000+ mi). The problem I am experiencing is as follows. Whan car is first started idle is a little high(1500-2000 RPMs). I figure this is to the choke is in cold start position. After engine warms the idle gets excessive sometimes as much as 4000 RPMs (scary). When engine is under load (in gear) the car woukd basialy drive its self with out any throttle`pressed. I've checked all the vacume hoses as best I can and can't find any broken hoses or mis-matched numbers. My haynes repair manual isn't much help considering it only covers very basic idle diagnostic info. I'm in no position to be able to afford a mechanic (God forbid the dealership) If I could only get a point in the right direction I would be very gratefull.
Thanks in advance
have the same problem?
