Why does a 95 Honda Civic EX idle very low in the morning and stall at the first stop?

because its cold, the car has not been running for over 8hrs or so, the oils get thicker and it moves slower, let if warm up. it souldnt stall, if it is time for a tune up (spark plugs and wires) change your oil to syntectic a fule cleanner might help to. you can change your idle speed by adjusting the throttle wire under the hood and that way the rpms will be higher. You most likely have a vacuum leak somewhere.

There can be many causes for a Honda Civic to stall. Some of them include a bad fuel pump, a bad alternator, a bad distributor, a clogged air filter or idle air valve. Buy a Honda Civic Service manual for more information. do it myself Honda civic repair

Sounds like you may have a broken motor mount that is causing a line to crimp or somethig.

it could be a few things. first thing i need to know will it start when the engine is running at normal? if no check your main relay.if yes, check around for a vacuum leak.
