    Honda Help...

    OK Honda guys, I could use a little of your expertise.

    Decided to help a friend with his '04 F 12. Just finished a basic service including spark plugs and throttle body lubrication. The idle is now high at 2100-2200 rpm on the trailer. Will this drop significantly when the pump is loaded with water?

    Any help is much appreciated,

    Jeff

    NO it wont. There is an Idle control knob that you can adjust the air intake. It's near the bottom of the Throttle bodies.

    If that doesn't work........

    Little motor 101

    Idle control on any gasoline engine is controlled by the amount of air that is let in. Fuel has very little input. That said, The angle of the butterflies is what dictates the idle speed.

    In your case If the idle does not slow when you turn the knob down you have a air leak somewhere. Find that and fix it.

    Help here

    I can't remember what my idle was on either of my Hondas last fall when I winterized them. I do know that the idle is always up high when they are run out of the water. All of my Sea-Poos were really high when it idled out of the water. I'm figuring that the Honda's do too.

    Thanks Shawn, you have been a big help... as always (albeit, a bit arrogant... as always )

    I'll check out your recommendations and report back. Hopefully, your 101 lesson will solve my dilemma!

    Shawn... you were dead on. A slight twist of the air adjustment knob brought the idle under control and I now have a very happy Honda friend.

    Thanks for your help.
