    We have just placed a v tech motor from a 1998 accord into my 2000 accord, originally a v tech, both were 4 cyl. automatics. I now can't get her to idle less than 2000rpm and the transmisson will not engage, Is there any wiring issues I should be aware of in this swap and what have I done wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We have no current codes but shows a permanent code.

    Thanks

    Derek

    The swap from 1998 accord F23A1 is now in my 2000 accord replacing another F23A1. Idling at 2000 rpm and auto transmission won't engage. What should I be looking at to fix this.

    Thanks

    Check your timing or maybe adjust the throttle cable

    fast idle control valve is probably causing the high idle. check your linkage to make sure that it isnt pinched.
