Default My 1992 Honda Civic Idles Rough and Stalls?


1. My honda starts rough, idles rough, and will sometimes stall at idle

2. I seem to be losing a few ounces of coolant/day, but don;t see puddles

3. The engine seems louder

4. As soon as I turn on my AC, it stalls immediately

I recently replaced the Alternator. It almost seems like the rough idle is caused by extra stress on the belts/ soon as I put more load on them...BAM! Stall

Oh, yea...I loosened the power steering belt to remove that load...still happens

ok under your distributor there is a valve its called fast idle, That is to rev your car up until it warm, take that off and spray out with carb cleaner, make sure the screen in there is good and clean.

Then on the back of you intake there is another valve its called idle air control valve. iacv. You are probably loosing coolant out if that, Take it off its two bolts and two hoses, Check the gasket and clean that out with carb cleaner two that should take care of your problem
