Hey Guys, Thanks for looking! so you all suggested on my last thread about the compression test i performed for my 99 crv, to get my valves adjusted cause i have 170k miles and it was never done yet -_-. and it was said it should solve some compression issues.
Truth be told it solved many issues but now some new ones have arisen.
i have not redone a compression test to see the new values. but i probably will tomorrow.
the amount of power & acceleration has increased 3 fold. its sounds amazing and its like a little rocket ship.
anyway it flows better on the highway and in the street, it doesnt feel like the engine is braking itself anymore. and most definetly has smoother acceleration and lower revs at cruising speed. great!
but when at idle if you tap the throttle from inside the engine bay with ur finger just a tiny bit, it drops about 100-200 revs and hesitates as if its not getting gas and trys to stall out. but this only happens for 1/4th of a second. its very quick. if u give it a jolt of gas or rev smoothly it shows no hesistation or anything un-normal. still idles a little rough
another thing i noticed, i started the car, warmed it up for a minute before the dial even hit C, put it into drive and the revs dropped to right above 0 and then the engine caught itself from stalling and went back up to the idle range around 1100 rpms for the cold temp as it warms up.
my brother told me that i shouldnt havent done anything to the valves because the engine is "loose & worn" from its age and mileage. i had these valves done by a professional mechanic. when i returned to the mechanic immediately after we did the maintenence they said now that its able to give the power it wants to provide i might need to clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner cause if its dirty it stops the initial rush of air from getting into the engine quick enough once i demand it.
i know nothing of these things. what do you guys think? any other things we need to maintain after this job is completed. i had the timing belt & water pump done 25k ago. thermostat round 10k ago, o2 sensors & cat & all new exhaust pipes about 6k ago. new synthetic oil change & new spark plugs 250 miles ago. valve cover job done 30k ago. multiple aftermarket engine & tranny mounts have been put in at different times. mechanic says car is healthy as can be for its age. driveshaft, brakes & the brake lines, rack and pinion, rebuilt transmission, all new struts, axles, control arms, & nice stereo system ALL DONE. this car is practically renovated back to factory conditions. whats next?
what and why would a valve adjustment throw it a little out of wack? any suggestions? im gunna clean the throttle body tomorrow and report back its status. hope it works!
