Hello to the forum. We have a 1987 Accord DX with 162k. The car is in good shape and we like it. We had to have the carb replaced, (2.O AC AT) with a rebuilt one. The first one waas bad so the shop replaced it with one that seemed better.......for about a month.
I have replaced both fuel filters, vacuum lines have been checked, timed and tuned up. Fuel pump has been checked and tank drained and cleaned. BTW there is a recall out for 1987 fuel filler tube, and seatbelt.
The tank was filthy with rust and that probably did in the original carb.
Symptoms include, erratic idle, erratic over revving while driving, engine dies at a stop, cruise control seems to fluctuate, high revving with little speed increase. After the car dies out, it will usually start right back up and stutter and sputter. Out on the highway at 65-70 it seems to run pretty good, but yesterday while driving home (20 miles) it was revving up to 4-5k and speed was only about 45-50mph.
I have the Haynes Manual and am going to check EGR and Reset ECU. If anyone out there can help with some ideas we would appreciate it greatly. Ron & Sharon Jordan~ firstname.lastname@example.org
Cleaned ECR and reset ECU. Seemed to run fine out on the highway. When entering town, and stop and go traffic, it seemed to load up or starve for fuel. Barely running and died out several times. Started it back up and jammed my foot through the floor panel on the accelerator and warp 9'd it. It slowly began to pick up revs and then all of a sudden it took right off. Weird>>>>>>>>Stuff. Has not happened again and am going to replace pcv valve today.
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks to all.
