Hope it's not the Dizzy but it's all I can think of...more $ to spend
Anyone know an at home test I may be able to do on the Dizzy? Maybe a link? All I can find for the last 30min are useless info from Google and bad guides.
Edit: Could it be the IAC Valve? Maybe it's just dirty or clogged up a bit. The problems mainly occur during idle, but I guess that wouldn't explain the RPMs jumping while in VTEC.
