I have the 94 sohc v-tec motor in my 94 civic. My problem is that when my car idles it goes from idle @700 rpm to about 1500 rpm by itself. It just goe up and down up and down like there is a rythmn to it. HELP ME!!!!!!!!!


I wanna be sedated
Did you swap it in there or is it the stock motor?If you swapped it are all the vacuum hoses good,any leakes around the IM or TB?
the problem is probaly a air pocket in your coolant system
as u say the car idle just goes up and down
to fix the problem just take off the rad cap [cold] and let the engine run till the rad fan turns on.
this sould solve the problem if it doesn't then let me know
