Introduction: A New Way to Lube My Idle Air Control Valve (Honda Civic 1999, D15B Engine).

About: As of April 2017 I have decided to no longer post on instructables. The fact that several of my published works have been removed without my consent is inexcusable. Also the insult of an author having no co...

Previously I used to remove the air filter and spray powerlube into the idle air port. Now I decided to try a new approach.

Step 1: Removing the Stator.

The connector I unclipped then the two screws holding the stator were removed. Once out you can see the bare rotor that turns the valve.

Step 2: Lubing!

A few squirts of powerlube onto the rotor and the stator cavity is all that is needed.

Step 3: Completion!

Once I mounted back the stator, I let it soak for half hour. When the car was started the idle was much smoother.

Not bad for a 5 minutes job.
