: D Hi there, just wondering if someone can help me. My 1986 Honda Civic has suddenly started to idle high, around 2thou, when I turn it off it has pr-ignition. The first time this happened it ran on for around 10 minutes, NO Kidding, I pulled all the leads off, still did'nt shut off. When it FINNALLY did the catelic converter was glowing red hot. I have also noticed that the exhurst manafold has turned a whiteish colour which indicates to me that it is getting too hot, I have check for air leaks, taken the converter off, checked the carbby but still can't find the problem. I have been doing some research and have noticed there is a Compound Vortex Combustion Chamber on it, but know little about it. Could this be my problem. I would appreciate any help with this frustrating matter, THANKS?
