    Default Engine idle problem civic 2002

    I had my timing belt, steering belt and compressor belt changed along with power steering pump bearings and timing bearings....and i asked the honda showroom people to do the required tuning if any...the guy saiud he would do the tuning as the tappets would also be adjusted...al work was done on tuesday..then wednesday when my mother was driving the car with the ac on the car stalls when it comes to a top or becomes slow on turns....with ac on....with the ac off the car is very smooth and feels very light from before and the engine noise is also less....but with the ac on the car comes to a stall...today too it did the same....wat could be the prob..the car is on petrol!!!

    check the last bill, was there anything mentioned some thing being required?

    my friend faced a similar issue but he rather had the " dancing Rpm " fluctuating RPM issue, his previus bill said Throtle body service required.

    So Honda people did it and the car was A-okay.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    now some other issues.....even after the throttle body service the car was not a hundred percent so they have adjusted it adn told me to drive it that way until it starts stalling again....now they say that if it stalls again the iac valve needs to be changed and that cost around 12000 ruppees....i wanted to ask if i oculd get hold of one in good condition that is used...

    this is sumthing similar to what happened to me.... my car went in for routine tuning at honda centre but it came out messed up, the car vibrated badly even at 1500rpm... the guy there told me that its engine valve is down and wud have to be replaced, cost was sumthing near 12k too, but i said wtf man? i drove in widout any problem n now u saying valve is down? i took out my car frm there n went to my old desi road side mechanic, in 5mins he said that the intake manifold is leaking frm sumwhere n needs to be re fitted... he opened it and fitted it ... problem gone!!!!!

    so dont go on wat ever they say, if u get valve done they r gonna say ur cars XYZ is messed up change it... better change ur mechanic....

    about ur problem... btw, one of the reasons cud be wrong adjustment of tappets, as its a very technical task which they do with quite basic tools which arent enough to do the job properly.... but it shudnt cause water level decrease... it can also be a timing belt installation error... i m not sure but theres sumthing like some specific point of the belt shud be at sum specific point on the pulley, if its off by even one unit.... sumtimes the car wont start or cause problems...

    @ahmadbila
    bro this looks like u having headache and u get medicine for nauxia.
    @poster bro before doing any thing check out with ur some desi mechanic without telling him wtf honda center did to ur car.and he'll come up with a reasonable solution,probably it could be some minor adjusments and tunning wgaira and dont go to honda chore center.

    Since you have already serviced the throttle body, here is quick turn job.
    Remove the IACV and spray it with Nasa carb cleaner. There would be 2 holes, one with and one without a small criss cross grill. When you spray it, the balck stuff (carbon) start to drip out. Do it a couple times till the fluid dropping is not clean. Should take about 5 minutes. Then once cleaned, let it dry out for about 10-15minutes. Put it back in place and tighten the bolts.

    You should be able to feel a difference. If not, then get the tappets adjusted. If it still doesnt work, there might be a problem with your Ecu not sending out signal to the engine, or it could be a problem in the distributor. Cant be anything else.

    FYI, these things are not very costly, so don't drag yourself down to Honda. They will not only run up your bill, but will also ruin your car.

    No offence to Honda or their engineers, but i personally dont have a good experience.

    Lastly, when all fails, send me a PM. I will refer you to Maestro Tarik. He is well acquainted and fairly reasonable.

    Goodluck.

    I think not only Honda but almost all so called appointed dealers are all like that!!!

    Can Maestro Tarik do Toyota as well??? PM his contact to me as well.

    Thanks!
