The following instruction and illustration describes detail procedures for inspecting and adjusting Honda Accord’86 throttle/choke cable. First, check that the throttle cable operates smoothly with no binding or sticking. Start the engine and check cable free-play at throttle linkage at idle (cable deflection should be at 4 – 10 mm).
If deflection is not within specs, loosen the locknut and turn adjusting nut until you can deflect cable as specified. Then tighten locknut. With cable properly adjusted, check throttle valve to be sure it opens fully when you push accelerator pedal to the floor. (note: check throttle valve to be sure it returns to idle position whenever you release accelerator.
