Default 88 Accord (auto/Carb)

Hello,

I have a 88 Accord (auto/carb). It intermittently has a problem idling back
down to normal after starting it up. In a past email message, someone stated
its common for this problem to be caused by faulty Frequency Valve C. Does
anyone know if its pretty straight forward to replace? What price I'm I
looking at to purchase this
valve? I know the emissions on this car looks pretty complex to
troubleshoot. I'd rather just replace it if its fairly inexpensive due to
its age etc.

Thanks,

Terry

Hi!
Sounds just like my 87 Accord (manual/carb). When not *fully* warmed up, RPMs spike
to 3,500 - 4,000 and they won't come down until the car's totally warmed up. This is
especially bad when the thermostat has *just* opened and I step on the clutch to
change gears. There's nothing like driving in second gear at 4,000 RPMs - but it does
help the car warm-up faster but my gas mileage is taking a hit....*vbg*

Did you get any solutions?

Thanks.

Ken

Hello Ken,

No, but I did see an email which indicated a possible faulty Frequency Valve
C. I haven't looked in the manual on what it takes to change it out or how
to locate it. I thought maybe I could get some insight before giving it a
try. I would expect someone already has performed this and probably would
have some words of wisdom which would probably save me tons of time if I
pursue it .

Let me know if you come across any information. Sometimes it idles back down
ok but most of the time
in the colder months it always remains to high. I usualy end up turning the
AC on to get it down so I don't mess up the trans.
