    my brother and i just swapped a b18a1 into my 89 crx hf. when i turn it on it idles at 3500 rpms until it warms us then it idles at 2000rpms. i hate turning it on when it's cold cause it's so loud until it heats up. wouldn't a vaccuum leak have a constant idle problem and not change after warming up? i could maybe clean my idle control valve but that would cause it to be idling so high would it? please help!!

    someone posts a thread about idle problems at least once a week. lol

    first, make sure your idle is set correctly.
    then bleed the air out of the cooling system.
    if those dont work, its most likely the ring on the fitv, but it couldnt hurt to clean the screens on the iacv.
    if its not that, it could be a vacuum leak, check the hoses and IM gaskets.
