Well for the last week or so it has been idling really crazy and i've got all kinds of Honda ppl telling me that it's different things. i took it to a shop and they said that it was a "faulty fast idle thermal valve" and it would be $170 for parts & labor. does this sound right? just wondering because i had a couple of ppl tell me that i didn't need new parts and just needed to adjust something. any help anyone can give is appreciated. i'm trying to learn as much as i can about this civic and would take any opportunity to do the labor myself, as long as i don't end up costing myself more $$$.

Hey bro check your timing it might just be the dizzy jumping, mine did that today and started freaking out on me but fixed it with a 12mm and turned the dizzy a little to the front of the car because some how the ecu advanced the engine while I was driving! If that isnt it check for air leaks, vacuum, maybe just reset your ecu... also unplug the TPS( Throttle position sensor and see if it changes at all if not that is it.. Let me know if any of that **** works!!
