2001 Hyundai accent - runs OK for about 40 miles on interstate. Then car seems to drop a cylinder and runs very rough. The check engine light does NOT come come on and there is no error code


Hi.

1. make sure you have the correct type spark plugs installed.
2. no vacuum leaks - lose air pipes
3. Check the Oxygen sensor "upstream" - remove it and see if it is sooted (black) then replace if needed.

hope this helps

1986 vw golf wont turn over


A head gasket is a gasket that sits between the engine block and cylinder head in an internal combustion engine. Its purpose is to seal the cylinders. It will still start but it won't run that well and you will damage your engine if you run it with it blown. so check your head gasket again.

Have a 90 Chevy 1500 with a 4.3 v6 and a 5 speed I the pickup was running fine left from work no problems then get off the interstate. And the running really rough I drove it to work the next day same...


Did you change the plugs in it, In That old of a truck depending on the miles on ot , If i had it i would be putting on a new cap and rotor, Not trying to clean it up, Allso it could be the control mudle breaking down, If it was never change, There could be a problem with the fuel (Injecters) Or throtle body.

Rough idling/loping at idle it otherwise runs fine off idle.


1. Vacuum leakage Check throttle body and intake manifold for tightness. check all vacuum hoses.
2. Faulty fuel or pump or electrical.
3. Plugged PVC valve.
4. Air filter clogged
5. Leaking head gasket.
6. Camshaft lobs worn.
All of these porblems can cause lopes or erratic idle.

Driving down interstate with car running fine. Then in my 2003 VW Golf the EPC light began flashing and I lost power. What do I need to look for?


the epc light is telling you that you have a feuling problem, get a mechanic to run a diagnostic scan to find the suorce, it should be only something small because the only dangerous light to look for is the oil light

1987 Volkswagen Jetta GL rough idling problem.


Hi!
So far you have done all but change the leads! This will help dramatically BUT if your head gasket is blown I'm afraid you'll have real difficulty in get it to run smooth as water/steam is possibly mixing with the fuel causing very poor ignition.
I did the same as you on a Golf as soon as the new leads were fitted Bingo a New Car, However there wasn't a head gasket issue.
Good Luck and A Happy New Year to you and your Family.

95 GMC Jimmy 4.3l W vin rough idle


My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.
