Fit In Five Steps

How to replace a Honda Acura Fuel Injection Idle Air Control Valve?

1.Locate the Valve and Disconnect the Battery

Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery and set it aside. The location of the idle control valve will depend on the make and model of your vehicle. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual will have information on the exact location. The valve will nearly always be located on the intake manifold.

2.Disconnect the Wiring Harness

Locate the wiring harness connected to the valve and release the electrical terminal from the valve. There will be a clip or a tab to disconnect, and it might be easier to gently remove it with a pair of pliers.

3.Remove the Old Idle Control Valve and Clean the Seat

Remove each of the valve’s retaining bolts. With the bolts and wires now removed, the valve should just pull out of place. With the seat for the valve exposed, use the throttle body cleaner to clean the area you will attach the new valve too. This assures a clean seal between the valve and its seat.

4.Install the New Valve

First, compare the old valve you are replacing with the new valve. Verify that the wiring terminals, retaining bolt pattern, and seat placement are all the same. Then put the new valve in place and install the retaining bolts, hand tightening them to the seat. Use your socket and ratchet to snug them down gradually one by one.

5.Reconnect all and Test the Idle Speed

Reattach the wiring harness to the valve. Ensure the terminal is making a proper connection and the clip is fully engaged to secure this connection. Reattach the negative battery cable to the battery. Tighten down the bolt so that any engine vibration won’t rattle it lose. This will restore power to the vehicle.

Start the engine and observe idle speed. Depending on your particular vehicle and ambient air temperature, your idle speed should hold steady between 550 RPMs (at the very lowest when it’s hot outside) and 1,000 RPMs (at the highest and at lower temperatures).
