hello,

i've got a 94' GSR & lately the cars idle has been messed up. it will idle between 1k - 2k non-stop when ever i'm sitting at a stop sign. it doesn't matter weather i have my foot on the clutch or not it will still act up. my 87' civic si had the same problem but i never checked into getting it fixed, but i'd like to take care of it with the teg. i've heard this is a common problem with honda's & was wondering if anyone has had the same problem & how to fix it? any help would be great. thanks.:)

Fast idle valve is gone or either it's the Throttle position Sensor. My 94 GS-R had that problem and it was my fast idle valve;)

I don't think its the idle speed. I'm thinking may be the Fast Idle Valve or TPS. I say TPS because every now and again it does bog (like its struggling for fuel) in 1st. I'm also concerned that it may be the alternator (AL) signal.

which valve?

the fast idle valve is located near the throttle body and its not a BITCH to change, but its not easy either, just something that you wouldnt really wanna do, but its not too hard either.

I would get a manual if I were you. They are cheap and are very informative. I know some people say they are for beginners, but I disagree. Sure some of the stuff they have is dumb, like changing the oil, but a lot of the stuff they cover is a step by step proceedure for doing things. It has helped me a lot over the years.
