2003 Honda Civic Question: Low idle speed

 

Question

Visitor, 1.7L 4 Cylinder, Northampton, MA, March 02, 2011, 07:08

This civic has a low idle and sometimes stalls at a stop sign or red light. At idle it seems to be around 2-500 rpm. Is there an idle adjustment screw on this model on the throttle body as in the 2001

    probably just a dirty throttle body. it needs to be cleaned out of all deposits around the throttle plate.

    Thanks Roy - My sons car, a student in New Orleans, is this an expensive fix at a garage. He would not be able to do this there.
