Default Idling

Hi,

My 90 Integra Xsi is smooth in the morning for 20min. After it reaches its
temperature and car warms up, the car idles between 2000 - 3000rpm, it
doesn't go smooth the car just keeps pulling back. I have to drive my car
past 3000rpm for it to be drivable. As the car gets warmer it gets much
worst but only between 2000-3000rpm.

I have been given the run around by Mechanics, exhaust specialists and auto
electricians. The Insurance people said it was my distributor bearings. The
Mechanics said it was 90% my exhaust and that I should see an exhaust
specialist. The exhaust specialist said it was definitely an electical
problem. I went to Honda and they said it was definetly electrical. I went
to an auto elec and he wants to charge me for a distributor and a throttle
body.

I'm sick of these rort ass incompetent mechanics!!! Common sense wise I'm
thinking its something as simple as cleaning the throttle body. What do
people think??

Thanks

Default Re: Idling

Sounds maybe like a vacuum leak that isn't leaking until some metal
component heats up and causes a separation of parts somewhere. Just my
guess.

If it was an exhaust problem it would be doing it all the time and I don't
see how an exhaust problem would cause a high idle.
