    After purging the gear box 1.4 CVT Jazz, and changing the fluid to the latest spec (to get rid of the jerky take off) which has now been cured I find the idle speed is high 1300 cold and about 1100 warm, revs rise on applying brake,A/C, and engaging gear from neutral, how can I slow it down? Please help.

    IIRC this can be the PCV being stuck which caused this .. i will have to dig this up or @Beefy will come along to give his input.

    IIRC = If I Recall Correctly

    PCV = Positive Crankcase Ventilation (i.e. breather)

    Beefy = a tame Honda technician that Ichiban keeps locked in his cellar.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much, I oft times wondered what IIRC meant, as for the "Honda" speak I need an interpreter, usually sort probs with a big hammer. LOL

    A little tip for you John, HondaKarma forum software actually explains a lot of the acronyms, anywhere where you see an acronym with dotted underscore line under it, hover the mouse it and the acronym will be explained ... try it on this PCV.

    Many thanks, the rubber pipes are so hard I fear they will crack if enough pressure is used so I will get new rubber before I go any further.
