hey everyone, i've been reading quite a bit lately here trying to figure out my civics problem. i have a 1987 carbuerated 1487cc civic sedan model. D15a2 engine, i think, i cancheck for sure... i got it for $200. 2 years ago. it had been wrecked and had front end damage. my dad and i fixed it with a donor car and it ran well for a while. the usual tune up stuff has been done. new cap, rotor, plugs, wires, filters, etc, valve adjustment, .... its my work car and i really need it. it runs fine except for idling. it either idles too low, or too high or not at all! i found a split in a vacumn hose and that helped with the erratic idle. but when i pull up to a stop light and push the clutch in, the engine immediately dies. it doens't do it all the time. it never dies when it is cold. i can let off the gas and coast tillthe last minute and the engine will run fine as the rpm's drop, but as soon as the clutch is pushed in, WHAM, engine dies! seems to be mostly when it is warmed up. i have a new coolant temp sensor i'm going to try tomorrow. i've also read where this could be an oxygen sensor problem. i could change this if i can get my old one out but how do u get it out? theres no room between it and the manifold cover to get a socket on it. is there a special tool just for this sensor? i've also squirted some carb cleaner into the air control valve and have carefully checked as many vacumn hoses as i can. i've checked the linkage and it seems to be okay. there does seem to be alot of corrosion that builds up on the positive battery cable. green crap. if that is related in any way. i've spent hours on this thing and about ready to give up. but i like this little car and it still gets good mileage. it runs perfect at every other speed but idle! and it always starts right back up easily after stalling. ggrr!i've never had such an intermittant problem. any ideas would be so appreciated!
