    hey, when my civic is warmed up I can rev the engine and when the tach comes down it goes down to like 500rpms. Then a clicking noise is heard that relembles a fart and the engine returns to normal idle. And it doesn't do it all the time. I heard it today after I got done washing it, then drove it home and tried to make it do it again but it woulnd't.

    WTF?????????

    Sounds like you got a little water in the engine, probably through the intake but it shouldn't do it to much longer if it hasn't stopped yet

    my car did that too, only after ive been driving it for quite a while. I fixed the tps setting and it was all good. Perhaps the iac valve is messed up?

    water wont hurt the engine unless it is excessive a little bit acts like a steam cleaner in the top end blows out all the carbon
