If it seems like it's misfiring... it seems to be the time of year you need to put a bottle or two of gas line antifreeze in our tank.

What would cause 93 chevy c1500 rough idle smells of excess gas at exhaust


Does the truck seem fine when you first start it & then acts up when it reaches operating temp?
That would lead me to look at my oxygen sensor, a bad sensor can cause the truck to run "rich" which would explain the fuel smell in the exhaust.

Car was running really rough like it wanted to cut off while driving through a rainstorm


I'd check the distributor cap (remove it and look for condensation on the inside of the cap) and plug wires (securely mated into the distributor cap and spark plugs). If that's not the problem, post back and we'll go from there.

If you can determine the ignition system is ok, I would look at fuel pressure and the fuel filter. If the distributor was loose you may have to check base timing.

Check distributor cap and rotor for carbon tracking(cracked cap). Perform compression test.If more than 10% difference between cylinders perform leakage test to find compression leak.

My 2ooo jetta is running a little rough. could it


Yes, it could be the wires, especially if this started after the plugs were replaced. The wires could have broke inside after pulling them off the plugs. There shouldn't be a distributor cap, there should be a coil pack on each spark plug, and I think that one of them is your culprit.

Truck tends to run rough in damp weather


i think you have a cracked distributor cap that is alowing the moisture to get inside of it. i would replace the cap. you can test this but beware if it is the cap the car will not start until all the moisture is dryed out of it. start the vehicle and spray just a fine spray of water on the cap if the vehicle acts up it is your cap or possible a plug wire

My F-150 started running extremly rough and barely runs.


It seems unlikely it would be a timing chain issue. They are not really known for jumping and if it had jumped there would be other issues, not the least of which would be pistons crashing into valves if its an interference engine.

When was the last time a tune up was done? Perhaps new plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor are in order based on the information you gave.

There could possibly be other issues, but based on what information you gave that is where I would start.
