thanks so much guys. I checked and the vacuum house on the mount is connected. I didn't notice any cracking, so i think it should be good.
i did do the idle "learn" procedure and it did seem to help, not nearly as rough and starts a little easier. I plan on going through the suggestions again and removing the vacuum hose to see if their is any deterioration that i can't see from a quick look.
thanks again for all your help. I'll also check out the other site on the honda issues.
