I love my 1989 Accord Lx but I'm tired of it running like an old tractor! Rough Idle, hesitation and almost stalling out when put into gear, running really rough until its driven for 15 or so minutes then idling better (she likes to be warm), ocassional surging in third or fourth gear under circumstances when I need to give it more gas (symptoms of running out of fuel or bad pump), stalling out when the A/C is on except if I'm cruising or in nuetral pumping the gas pedal.
She still gets 28-30 mpg and cranks up everytime I turn the key, it also fast Idles when it's supposed to on a cold start and I've had the choke pull off replaced and a minor rebuild/float & needle done a few years ago. New fuel pump and both filters, spark plugs/wires replaced less than a year ago, distributor cap & rotor done a few years ago.
Ultimately I just have a really strong feeling this carburetor is just old and crappy. It's a can of worms going through all the ridiculous trial and error diagnostics dealing with it so why not buy a reman and swap it out? I have replaced multiple vaccum lines and checked for leaks. nationalcarburetor.com is selling my carb at a great price right now, with lifetime warranty they stress quality on their carbs and say they test them and will usually be a bolt on and go style job.
Has anyone here replaced there old accord carb? Any advice or recommendations? Much appreciated!!
