    never hurts to double check. next is a compression test. also, do you have a crank angle sensor?

    Its possible the crank sensor went bad (if and only if you have one) but it would be a coincidence.

    Please clarify and expand on the info you gave. So you started it up without the crank pulley (and alternator)......and it made its way to a normal idle at running temp?


    Check the cover for it may be causing an obstruction. The crank may be rubbing?? You'd know when you take it off.

    You should bust it all off again and look. Maybe even try to see if it still runs fine without the crank and cover. If it does....you narrowed it down. Don't throw parts at it just yet.

    So it did it with the pulley off? Not enough info given. You doing this off your phone?

    And that leads you think you have a bent valve?

    If you have a VTEC D15B then I would think its not a striaght swap for the non-vtec head but I haven't tried so all I can offer is caution and I would take the head apart to see if a valve is truly bent.

    Well.....the IACV plays a part at running temp....not initial start up.

    If you unplug the IACV when its running at normal running temps (make sure fan turned on, thermo opened) and rpm doesn't fall....then you can figure the IACV is bad.....maybe clogged.

    But....if you got another one....throw it on. I think there is only two kinds. Wide bolt pattern and narrow bolt pattern.

    So...how did the motor run before this work was done to it? If you are unaware of its running condition prior to the change.....you could have a variety of problems going on or it may be something simple.
