    Was hoping I could get some advice here lol
    Tell us your specific symptoms and troubleshooting/repairs you have done.

    Why is the DIY in BLUE MARINE COLOR !! MARINE ON BLACK ???!!

    Great DIY though, I did most of these before landing on this DIY ... however ... I still have erratic idle when driving .. the only thing left that I didn't notice was the Air Boost Valve that you mentioned in your DIY !! So if I remove the spring and close back the lid, will that solve the problem ?! I live in a Mediterranean country ... so the climate is great, would blocking off the Air boost Valve affect my CB7 negatively or positively ?!

    Bring this old thread back up, since it's still a very useful DIY post...

    To add to it, whenever you do these repairs (Except for bleeding the coolant), you have to reset your ECU (Disconnect battery completely for at least 5 minutes, then reconnect your battery). Once you reconnect your battery, start your car and let the car idle without touching the throttle at all. Let the car do a full cooling cycle, which is when the fans kick on. Once the cycle is complete (The cooling fan shuts off), then you turn the car off, start it again and you're good to drive.

    F*cking Idle Surge!

    So the ol Accord would surge when it was cold. Not a big deal because it would have to be in the single digits before it did this and only when in nuteral, in gear and idel not a big deal. Today in 90+ degree heat it came on with a vengence!
    The car when started jumps to 2000 rpms than stays there for 15 or so seconds then the surge starts. Surging fron 1200 to 2000 rpms!
    When the problem of surging in cold weather came on I did the IACV and FITV surge remedy solution and it really didn't accomplish much, so I did it again today and also checked the function of the IACV selenoid which operates normally. No help. I'm going to change the EGR Valve tomorrow. Now here is my Question.
    Whwn I installed my AEM cold air kit the instuctions instructed the installer(me) to disconnect the vacuum line from the boost air valve and plug the manifold connection and install the little foam filter on the boost valve connection. I'm wondering if I should hook this back up to apply vacuum back to it?
    This is really pissing me off. I've got one car with the engine out on the garage floor, and now this one started its shananagins. I'm about ready to push them into the street poor gas on them and give the local fire department some practice!
    No CEL no Vacuum leaks just that F*cking surging Idle!

    My car idles around 1200-1500 and surges from 1200 to 2000. Also you can hit the gas and it jumps passed 2000. Not to mention when you are barley hitting the gas you can hear the motor sucking for air even when im not touching the throttle, then the car will jump and rev the rpms again.

    If im coming to a stop when ever i put the clutch in (at low rpms) the rpms jump and it too sounds like its still sucking air hard when im not giving it any throttle.

    im going to take the IACV out when i get home and try cleaning that mother sucker..
    I have a f22a1, never noticed anything uncapped. Ill have to look into that deeper..

    Just a couple things:
    Isn't removing the ECU backup fuse after already removing the battery cable redundant? I'm pretty sure there isn't a backup battery on that circuit...then again I don't know everything.

    But I do know that the EGR function info is incorrect. You're describing something else, can't remember the name. The EGR does just as its name says (exhaust gas recirculation) when the engine is at a high enough temp, and at certain throttle conditions.
    Regardless, the procedure was the important thing, and I think it was great. :TU:
    u can never have too many safety features, better safe than sorry i say
