A bit more about the car: Crazy bastards at the Honda dealership, after assuring me it was under warranty, handed me a quote to fix it.... A problem like this can go a long time with no real problems or break tomorrow if it does break for sure than it becomes much easier to find. The weird thing that's happening: I shift into neutral at stoplights automatic transmission , which solves the lurching symptom depending on temperature, but not the underlying cause, since the engine still rhythmically races until it is warmer.
Whether it is front, rear, or all 4 rotors that are warped, the brake pads should be replaced along with the rotors. I'd remove it, clean it, and jump power to it to make sure it clicks nice and loud.
Kind of like the rear of the car is wagging back and forth and felt in your seat. The other and probably more time-effective option is to buy new rotors and replace your old ones.
The same guy has been working on it, and while I really like him, a second opinion might be necessary at this point. There are a lot of other vapors besides air swirling around in the throttle and intake manifold and this miasma consists of hydrocarbons, oil vapors, and crankcase vapors.
If your hoses are disconnected or worn out many other engine problems can begin to occur as a result. Getting a new car at this point is not so much an option.
Book Appointment. Given a number of other inputs, the onboard computer actuates a bypass valve that's attached to the throttle body the assembly that contains the throttle plate, return spring, throttle position sensor, etc and the computer thereby meters a specific amount of air into the engine. Worn shocks or dampers can cause dangerous handling as well.

It's likely a classic case of warped rotors. A set of new sparkplugs should cost you something like 20 dollars at least that's the equivalent cost around here , replacing them should take about 10 minutes of work for your mechanic if you don't have a wrench or don't want to do it yourself. Get 'em replaced.
I would not drive it until the problem is fixed. My car has an automatic transmission.
When I am going higher than 20 mph and press the brakes my car has a bouncing or skipping sensation. Phillip, We suggest asking your question through our Ask a Mechanic feature https: Low idle Help?
