it has a D16ZC motor.
-The idle fluctuates in the morning unable to duplicate fault..

All appeared to be in good condition and are all properly working.
they cleaned the throttle body
they said the idle valve not hooked up to cooling system , causing fluctuating idle (throttle playe does not close all the way?)

Check the wiring, grounds, test the main relay, make sure that the screw did not fall out of the distributor rotor.
Why did he buy an Si with a ZC motor?...They are about 13 years old. What are the rpm's doing when the car stalls? (high/low)
