Question about 2002 Honda Civic

1 Answer

02 Honda Civic LX (automatic) randomly stalls while idling at a stop sign or light. Help?

02 Honda Civic LX (automatic) with ~180k miles randomly stalls while idling at a stop sign or light. Usually it sputters before the battery light comes on and the engine dies, but the radio and lights still stay on. After turning off the car and restarting it, it runs fine and starts back up right away. It's not consistent when it occurs even during the same conditions, and it's been happening over the course of roughly 2-3 months. Any ideas as to what the problem could be?? It's been happening more lately, probably once a week or so. Today, it stalled on me at a stop sign, but sputtered and stalled right away after restarting it 3x which has never happened before. It ran fine with no problems after that. Any input would be appreciated.

Honda stalls going from idle to driving


I recommend doing a leak down test. It could be valves or blow by. Also try cleaning the idle air control valve (IAC-V), the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR), and fast idle valve (if it has one).

1998 Honda Civic relearn idle


Just drive the car as you normally would and the CPU will automaticly relearn your driving habits and be fine. It may stall the first few miles till it learns you want it to continue to drive it. Just avoid heavy traffic areas the first few miles. I hope this helps you out.

Check engine light on.99 CIVIC lx rough idle. while driving almost stalled out. had to hammer the gas to .then it took off..HELP!!!!


First get the check engine light scanned at your local parts store, they'll do it for free. I'll bet the problem is a plugged EGR passage, which is very common on those engines.

I have an 89 Honda Accord lx and it idles too low


The idle speed for my 88 accord lx is 700-850 rpm for standard idle speed. The stalling is a seperate issue. When were plugs, wires, air/gas filters and distributor last checked? How long has engine been running for when you stall? Is the temprature gauge high? Any lights coming on when stall occurs? I am not a mechanic, but a DYI'er. These are common questions I am always asked when troubleshooting my Honda. :)

Poor Idle, dies at stopsigns


I have used this fix for your problem for 20 years.
Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

1995 Jeep C. 4.0l 6cyl stalling & dies. Random. Getting worse.


Before you encounter this problem do you have problem starting the Jeep?


Crank angle sensor and Idle air control valve are the most common parts failure for 150,000+ miles vehicle.


I would clean the spring,plunger and the interior pathway of the IAC. The IAC is the 4 wire electronic motor that adjust the idle.


Since you has 180K miles,the CAS should be replace.


The .Automatic Shutdown relay (ASD) (Relay #4/inside the fuse box) can be damage also.


Check out these three trouble spots and post a comment.


I will follow up on it later.
