    OK! I have a 93 Honda Civic EX 1.5L.

    Yesterday I turn on my car and it seems as if it is idling really rough. but got worse when I put in reverse and drive. the car is jumping back and forth until i actually drive away then it rides fine. Now as I stop any red light or stop the car for any reason the car stalls out but will turn on right away. I can keep it from stalling by putting it in Park and giving it a little gas till the light turns green. There are somethings I have already done but the problem continues. I would appreciate some help from anyone. I don't know where to go from here. This has not been a on and off again problem it just started yesterday morning running that rough.

    Things done:
    New plugs and wires
    New dist cap
    new fuel pump

    What else should I do?????

    Maybe clean the iacv or the fuel filter?

    I've experienced low coolant causing rough idle sometimes. And you may loose some when you clean the iac.
