85 Honda Accord clutch and idle adj.

Hey, campers... I need help with the following problems: <p>#1: How do I correctly adjust the slow idle on a carbureted Honda Accord LX 1.8? When the fast idle finally kicks off, the motor will keep stalling. Maybe a vacuum leak? <br>#2: How do I correctly adjust the clutch free play? At the clutch or at the pedal? I've not even checked to see if there is an adjustment at the pedal.</p></br> Thanks -Charles

If you haven't changed anything to cause this idle problem, then I would look for things like a vacuum leak, sticking EGR or leaking carb. Don't crank up the idle to compensate for another problem. As far as the clutch is concerned, if it uses a cable, it may not, it will adjust at the trans end. It may be hydraulic and losing fluid.

Thanks, Desi. What's the best tool to use to move the clutch lever to be ABLE to turn the adjustment knob? Can't do it by hand. Thanks again.

If I recall right the adjuster is a plastic knob at the bellhousing, and it should be able to be turned by hand. As it turns it kind of clicks with each small amount of rotation. If it is stuck can you apply some penatrant to the threads? You might try gently coaxing it with a small pair of channel lock or similar pliers.

Will give that a try. I may have other questions as I get further into this little beast. Thanks a million.
