I've just gotten my car serviced and since then my car is doing some funny things. It's a 1991 Civic GL, 1.6L automatic, 165,000 km.
First, it was idling quite high, around 1800 rpm.
So I took it back to have it looked at, and the mechanic lowered the idling to a reasonable level.
Now whenever I start the car, it revs up and then dies. I need to keep my foot on the gas to keep it from dying, and after it's started moving forward, it seems to run fine. I've raised the idling back to a higher level, but the problem is still there. When the car is cold, there is basically no problem, but this happens when the car has already warmed up.
And sometimes, when I shut off the engine, the motor continues to sputter or cough for a few seconds.
What could this be? Thanks for your help!
have the same problem?
