Lots of times the idle air control valve gets stuck on these engines. You can try cleaning it. Remove the air intake hose from the throttle body. Start the engine and spray throttle plate cleaner through the hole in the bottom on the throttle body. This will run the cleaner through the idle air control valve. make sure to keep the RPM's at about 2000 to 2500 throughout this procedure. You may need to install a new idle air control valve if it continues to happen.

SOURCE: 98 camry engine light on w/misfires & system too lean

take sample of your fuel into clear plastic bottle from fuel line
is there any water present?
this can cause these codes and then not go on storing codes for other bank even though that bank will be missfiring also due to water & P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected being logged
check all connections to coils/leads & wiring connectors
due to miss fire codes for cyl 1,3,5 all on the same bank
also look and check for air leaks on that bank (hose knocked off or splithose)inlet manifold gasket,brake booster etc...
3 injectors being blocked slightly on same bank posible!!!
check wires and signal

was it running like this b4 tune up & repairs?
this is what codes are
P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank 1)
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0301 Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0303 Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected
P0305 Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected

the last code is for trans due to misfire/running lean on bank 1 probably a torque problem code

What could cause jerking and stalling at the same place on my route every week or so on my 92 buick century 3.3

How long since a tune up? Definitely add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank...maybe 2 bottles...I prefer Luca Oil injector cleaner...Walmart sells this the cheapest...also sludge in tank? Add a bottle of HEET to the gas tank to help dry up moisture,,,water...Change air filter and clean out (spray) throttle body...near the air filter inlet...also spray out mass air flow sure to use MASS Air flow sensor spray only...does not damage the sensor...better mileage, smooth idle...hope this helps.

1992 olds cutlass supreme wont accelerate when pushing the gas pedal

Check oil first, Low oil sensor will shut down if more than a quart low. Change fuel filter, could be fuel starvation, change the air filter. stopped up air filter will put MAF sensor out of range. PERFORM OBDII SCAN SOON.

I have a 91 chevy lumina it idles but as soon as you hit the gas it stalls

Have your fuel pressure checked. Also scan for trouble codes in the engine computer-use an OBD-1 code reader (on board diagnostics). The MAP sensor should be checked for proper operation. Run some injector cleaner through the engine for possible clogged injectors. Check your fuel filter and air filter.

06 Hyundai Azera error code p0300, car ran rough at first then ok , check engine came on, Dealer put fuel injector cleaner in it. had problem a year ago and dealer said problem was accellerator pedal...

P0300 is a random misfire detected, and it would cause me to do a good tuneup-clean the throttle body, air filter, fuel filter, plugs, plug wires (if it has them), oil change (just because)-fuel injector cleaner is voodoo and the dealer proved that he did not know what was wrong when he did that in my opinion-while there is nothing wrong with throwing in a bottle of injector cleaner once in a while, it is NOT going to fix a misfire problem-that is probably an ignition issue that may be confounded by a bad fuel filter/air filter or leaking injector o-ring.

Slight rough idle in park warm or cold after warmed up a lot rougher at stop light but doesn't stall/ normal driving speed run great

seeing how the truck is an 88 there could be a few solutions that will not cost alot of money. I would try to add fuel injectior cleaner to your next full tank of gas as well has using a higher octane fuel or octane booster. Also try some heet. this takes some of the extra moisture out of the gas and should be added in a full tank as well. Some of the Lucas brand injector cleaner will remove moisture. If there is any knocking in the motor, on your next oil change put in a bottle of Lucas oil treatment or something I use called Hyper-Lube. They both are only 1 quart bottles so you will short the amout of oil put in the engine by 1 quart. When the truck is sitting overnight or for a few hours especially in a cool environment the oil will get thick, when the truck warms up the oil thins and you notice problems like what you described. I live in Indiana and the winter here can be a bit rough on a car/truck. If additives don't solve the problem then you will have to look into the possibility that there is a mechanical/electrical component that is bad. They can be:
throttle position sensor
dead fuel injector
lose of compression in a cylinder
dirty fuel filter
dirty air filter
spark plugs
engine timing off
faulty spark plug wire/ wire being on the wrong plug causing firing order being wrong
since it runs fine at driving speed I would check into the fuel injector cleaner 1st. The injector or the throttle position sensor.
I have a family member who has the same truck and for a smaller truck it's pretty tough. Definately a keeper

After driving the truck will not start unless the

try to clean the throttle body with a carb and choke cleaner using a tooth brush to help you out. it sounds like your not getting enough air. also get a injector cleaning. or run a few (2)bottles of fuel injector cleaner in a full tank of fuel.

Fuel line or fuel filter location. The jeep wants to cut off and does not want to start unless I put the gas to the floor.

Your problem may be the reverse of what you are thinking...Putting it on the floor should add more air and lean it out. You may have a leaking injector. Before cold starting spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body. If it starts right up, then look at fuel pump or filter. If it takes longer to start, then look at injectors and map sensor. Air cleaner element is clean, correct?

give it a oil change and put a new fuel filter on it. you might have to change spark plugs and spark plug wires. also put some engine and fuel treatment. if that does not work put about 5 gallons of premium fuel in.

Charade Runs rough at low speeds

Couln't hurt to put a bottle of fuel injector cleaner through it. If that's the problem you should see improvement in just a few minutes. Could be air intake. If the filter is very old or if it is after market and there is not enough air already filtered when you press the accelerator there is a lag. You need a certain amount of space between the filter and the connection to store air for immediate response. Good luck.
