    ihavea 90 dx hb with a b16 and endyne chip. ever since i got it it had bouncing idle at start up but then it would go away.well after driving it and putting some miles on it, it ould start bouncing real bad at idle, (like the engine compartmet was heat soaked).so ive took the iac off and found that ih only had one bolt in it because of the bolt pattern(maybe off accord????) so i put snotheer one on seemed to help but then it came back. so i took the one of my other 90 dx with d15b vtec and slapped it on, helped but still comes back after ahrd driving. my last effort is to check the timimg and slap another iac on. any help if u kno thanks also are obd1 iac com[patable with obd0 stups?

    are you sure it's not a sensor? like maybe a water temp sensor? I had that problem with my 88crxsi, and it bounced and shot up to high rpms, in all gears and neutral. Oh, and if that is the case, you may not get a cel. Something to think about anyway. Or did it start doing it EXACTLY when you got the chipped ECU?

    it usually does, but the tps might not be out of position...it just might be jacked.

    idle screw might be off or your throttle cable may be too tight...there are a couple things that will cause the high idle.

    as i said though (through pm), get that tps replaced with one off ebay and then the problem should go away. You can readjust the idle with the new tps, or you can check the other things i mentioned.

    I will say it again, DO NOT DRIVE WITH THE TPS UNPLUGGED.

    heh^_^


    And I had the exact same problem and it was the water temp sensor. Take it to honda and have them check the ecu for irregularities. I didn't have a cel, but they did say that it had registered out of range several times. So, even though it was bad, the ecu thought it wasn't bad enough I guess. Or just buy a new one for like $40 bucks from honda or somewhere else.

    check for air leaks.....a plug was loose in my motor and my idle bounced like crazy....it would shoot up to about 4k and then drop to 800 then shoot back up to 4k constantly in neutral.....is ur gas pedal really sensitive in neutral?
