I just noticed in a Honda Tech Forum that way back in 1991 there was a service bulletin No. 91-031 issued that says " The engine may occasionally idle roughly or erratically after coming to a stop with the throttle fully-closed." and the cause listed is "In...

Re: Intermittent Idle Issue

OK boys here's the 3/22/17 update on the mystery idle issue. I was getting antsy for spring and we finally had a 50 degree day so I tried an experiment.
