leak stop wont hurt the engine but its not very hard to replace im pretty sure theres only 2 bolts on each mount on top of the radiator just pull those off unhook the fan wires and loosen the hose on top and bottom of the radiator and pull it out oh and drain the fluid out before you pull the hoses

If your engine revs up and down while in park or neutral it is probably your idle air control valve going bad. Other signs of it going bad are if it idle high or even dies.

thank you for the info.


where would this be on the V-Tec motor? thanks Jeff

This applies to all motors. Has nothing to do with v tech. Is just a small unit that measures and controls the air at idle. You can clean it out or replace. Sometimes it will throw a code. I had a 95 accord ex that had the same thing. I replaced the idle air control valve and it idle just fine after. I would keep the receipt just in case it might be the throttle body. Very small chance it is that if it only fluctuate when in park or neutral.


Kool But where is it located?? Jeff

James Watson

It is located on your intake manifold towards the firewall. You can look up what the part looks like and then look for it in your engine bay.


ok thanks
