joehelf Posted March 13, 2010 Share Posted March 13, 2010 My 88 Accord with only 80,000 miles dies everytime I put it in drive unless I hold on the gas and put it in drive at the same time. It is the 2.0 carburetor with automatic transmission. Air conditioner is off and nothing else is on. I've been working with it for a couple of days. I have all the vaccuum lines hooked up and in their correct position. I can't seem to get the idle rpm's down low enough to idle @700 rpm. If I idle it down below 1200 rpm it wants to die. I've checked the low idle solenoid and it's good. I've checked every control solenoid I can. I have a vaccuum pump/guage and have used it extensively. Should I be checking the timing? It runs smooth, no missing, no choking, but will not stay running when I put it in drive unless I hold down the accelerator. Right now I'm at a loss.
