Hi. I just purchased an '88 Accord LX Auto yesterday. It sat for 2
years without being started, and I started it up within 30 seconds
with a new battery & some gas. 213K miles on the odometer.
It runs great when it's cold. It's got power, starts right up, drives
When it's warm, the idle surges between 600RPM [15 seconds] 1500 rpm
[15 seconds] and then 2500 rpm [15 seconds]. Then it repeats.
When I give it gas, it bogs down the RPM until it dies.
If I press the gas slow enough it will rev up to 3K before it dies.
ONLY when its warm!
Which sensor could be going out? Or is it a gizmo attached to the
carburetor? Maybe the radiator was filled without bleeding the air
bubble out of it? The guy that owned it knew nothing of mechanics.
I come from a Chevy world, building oldschool V8's. :]
ANY assistance would help! I don't know who to talk to about Honda
