you shorted out the timing adjust connector when setting timing,
correct? and the cam timing's definitely correct? if so, and you've
done nothing else that could cause this problem since the car last
worked properly, proceed to setting the idle speed. disconnect the
eacv, then adjust the idle screw on the throttle body. set it for the
specified rpm, [750 on my civic], then reconnect the eacv.
i remember - you needed to tighten the timing belt. adjusting idle
really is last resort here dude. once basic setting is made, it's all
computer controlled so it shouldn't have to be touched during the life
of the car. double, triple, quadruple check everything to ba absolutely
certain before adjusting idle. sorry to labor the point, but if the
belt's been done, it's really quite easy to be a tooth out. that'll
account for your idle problems much better than the throttle body
suddenly being out where it wasn't before. it'll make for different
ignition timing too - another idle factor.
