Ok my engine reves up and down when idling after i put all parts together from installing a new clutch and finnaly realizing that i didnt hook up one cable - that is what was causing the short,

its a 92 civic lx with a b16b
i noticed that when i press the gas just a little then it evens out but still revs too high by about 500 rmp

disconected the wires for the starter and the ground off the tranny

now when I was working on it I might have touched something - i dont know

is it true that it might be the voltage adjustmant on the throtle body sensor-

and if I do increase it it will help but will it make the engine rev higher when idling

possibly an air bubble in your coolant lines, bleed the cooling system again. if the problem persists, then unplug the IACV and see if that cures your ails.
