Engine Mechanical problem
1982 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles
Hi, I have a 1982 honda civic with 112,000Km on it. The problem is when it is warm it idles roughly and intermittently. Since I've had the car (since 80,000KM) I've put in new fuel filters, new air filter and have done oil changes every 3500-4000Km. It has ran pretty well up until recently. Does anyone have any ideas? We tested the main fuel cut-off solenoid and it works. We played with the air/fuel mixture screw as well as adjusted the timing. All to no avail. We also sprayed a healthy dose of carb cleaner into the carb. There appears to be good vacuum. Before the idling problem, when I'd be sitting at a set of lights and they turned green I'd go to accelerate and there would be what I would call a dead spot where it would seem like it shut off and then come to life again. It runs fine on the highway or freeway however.
Thank-you for your help :)
have the same problem?
