Having problems with your 2005 Honda Civic ?
55,000 miles. new battery. new air filter. original spark plugs. runs very smoothly after starting. engine started having to turn over more then about 2 weeks ago. idle speed is slower I noticed. on acceceleration very smooth, doesn't miss or stumble, has good power. just new on set about starting. battery terminals are clean
You may have sludge in the idle air bypass valve and or the throttle blade is sludged up, clean them with an approved spray cleaner, call honda and ask what they recommend. You may also have a loss of fuel press due to a defective check valve in the fuel pump, in that case cranking time is increased quite a bit, as much as 5 or 10 seconds.
