1986 Honda Accord DX 2.0 2 bbl Car sometimes dies while at low idle. When you start the car and set the choke it runs fine at high idle, just after it warms up and is at low idle it can sometimes just die. In addition, while driving if you come to a stop or sow to corner and the idle falls below 1000 RPM it can die. Had tune up with plugs, wires, cap, rotor and both fuel filters replaced and LOF.

Check for engine vacuum leaks and check to make sure the idle is set properly. It should idle around 900 RPM's

Low idle is around 900 RPM when it runs at low idle. Just had it at a shop and they found no vacuum leaks. Any other suggestions?

Since there are no leaks and the car runs good off an idle, I question the carb itself.
