What car , and year and engine? What color smoke?

Posted on Oct 31, 2008

  • helpyou Nov 01, 2008

    The smoke is oil burning. Usually if only on start or acceleration it's the valve seals. Check the spark plugs and make sure they are 100% correct. Check the plug wires as well make sure they are not arching. The coil wires as well. Do a humidity check on all spark related parts especially the ignition coil which goes very often on 2.0 L causing sometimes strange problems. Located near the firewall. You can spray water in a spray bottle while the engine running to see if spark jumps or the engine runs rough or stalls.

Check your exhaust manifold. A blown gasket or even a small crack in the manifold may cause this. Its also possible that your airflowmeter is faulty

Car shaking on start-up... slight temperature problem


Could be plug fouling out from leaky fuel injector flooding engine when you shut it down, then clears after running some, however, running hot is not a good sign and could point to head gasket leak. Many other possibilities too, but I would start with examination of spark plugs.

Car running rough at random when accelerating and also idle drops suddenly when slowing down and often completely stalls out when I stop. Smells strongly of gasoline when it stalls/almost stalls but I


This could be a lot of things. one of the tests that you need to run is shift it into nuetral when you are stopping and see if it still drops RPM and wants to stall. This will eliminate or conclude that it is a transmission issue. If it is still doing this then it could be a vacuum leak or fuel delivery issue.

My car goes off everytime I stop in traffic or when I drive in idling.


If you turn key off and it continues to run and run rough, this is the engine running backwards. It's called run on and you should check your timing. Best to check timing also when the engine is all warmed up also.

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold, other symptoms include stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
