I just switch the radiator hose to put in my p2r throttle body spacer. Some coolant spilled out. Got new hose in and refill coolant. Now my car won't stay on after like 20 sec of idle.Any one know any ideas of why?
at: What people play around with? By putting an intake on?Did you spill large amounts of radiator fluid into your intake? It amazes me what people play around with.
This really has nothing to do with his idle problems. The car would still idle....No CEL? What happens when you step on the gas pedal? Check the DBW harness to the throttle body if it's loose.
Finally, you can do the Idle-Learn Procedure: (Follow what the instructions below to the letter. However, disregard what it says about the Honda Diagnostic System (HDS) if you don't have one.)
ECM Idle Learn Procedure
The idle learn procedure must be done so the ECM can learn the engine idle characteristics.
Do the idle learn procedure whenever you do any of these actions:
Replace or clean the throttle body.
NOTE: Erasing DTCs with the HDS does not require you to do the idle learn procedure.
1. Make sure all electrical items (A/C, audio, lights, etc.) are off.
2. Reset the ECM with the HDS.
3. Turn the ignition switch ON (II), and wait 2 seconds.
4. Start the engine. Hold the engine speed at 3,000 rpm (min-1) without load (in neutral) until the radiator fan comes on, or until the engine coolant temperature reaches 90 °C (194 °F).
5. Let the engine idle for about 5 minutes with the throttle fully closed.
NOTE: If the radiator fan comes on, do not include its running time in the 5 minutes.
6. Verify the IDLE LEARN in the DATA LIST is completed with the HDS.
yeah...mine came with a plastic cap that I screwed in. Think of it this way...your car meters all the air coming into it so it knows how much fuel to inject, if you have a big hole after were you read your air, your going to be running really lean because of all this unmetered air getting into your motor.so i should just plug a screw in there just to cover it right? whats hds?
