Hi, Am new to the forum. Am hoping someone can give me a few pointers on issues am having with my Honda CRV 1998 RD1 model. Firstly, the vehicle starts up OK. I recently changed out the spark plugs, distributor cap and ignition coil and all looks good here. Once the car is started, it revs up to 1000 rpm and holds which sounds OK. When I press on the gas pedal though, the engine loses power but picks up soon after. After some internet research, decided to check my IAC valve. Issue is I can only see the electrical connection to the valve I don't see any other tubes to the IAC. I hadn't noticed this before so am not sure if its always been this way or not. Can the car run right without the IAC? Car's been running for a number of years without any issues until recently.
