Default Honda CRX Problem

Hi, Can anyone help with a problem my son has with his Honda CRX -
994 -it's a model CRX VTI, with a 1.6 vtec engine 160bhp double overhead
cam eng number. V16A21108012. When cold the engine ticks over happily at
around rpm 1,300/1,400 whilst cold however if you stop at road junctions the
engine dies. It has been services regally at the same garage (not a Honda
garage - the nearest one is almost 40 miles away) for many years with no
problems. When my son took it back to the garage the engineer said the slow
running could not be increased any more without upsetting something else, he
suggested It would have to go to a Honda garage for a satisfactory repair.
My son have spoken to several other motor engineers who have suggested
perhaps the wrong spark plugs have been fitted, or perhaps it's a solenoid
valve on the carb is at fault. Has anyone had a similar problems ?
JayB

Could be the bearings in the distributor shaft. Have you have the
rotor/cap replaced before? Also, have the ignitor checked - they're a
well-documented failure point in these cars. My 91 CRX Si was exhibiting
the same symptoms you describe, and I had to have both the ignitor and
the distributor cap/rotor assembly replaced last year. It idles just
fine now.

Go to a honda or a honda trained mechanic,
that has a reputation for good diagnosis.
I had a similar problem with my 87. Turns out
it was 1. a bad fast idle valve, and 2.
the O2 sensor had been hooked up incorrectly.
Read the code the computer is giving you.
It will be cheaper to take it to a very qualified
person once, than go with the cheapo dudes that
are not good, 5 times. Trust me.
