Default Re: Rough idle 1991 accord... Wierd.


Well now that shes back on the road it's actually rather wierd the new
head unit cd player and speakers fixed the problem, it idles at
800-1000. The old radio had shorting problems with the rear deck
speakers, So I suppose that was the cause... Now all she needs is a
clutch tune-up, oil change, timing belt, and shell be good for another
50,000 km.
Its true those little f22 motors just run FOREVER.
