You can rap the fuel rail with a wrench and it will smooth out for a couple of miles then right back the way it was running rough and will not gain rpms on the road???

2005 Hyundai Tucson jerking in park and when coming to a stop light. Jeep runs rough and sometimes shuts off when making hard left or right turns. Could smell exhaust gas.


you have clogged fuel injectors, take it to a dealership only! they are the only place that has the proper set up to clean them. My 89 Mustang GT had the exact same problem and ford service center cleaned them for $80 and it was 100% better never had another problem, sold the car at 276K miles and it still ran perfect with no drips or leaks, the tranny finally went out. Never use those cleaners sold at stores they do more harm than good! they will void your warranty also.

The car was running fine, it hesitated once, then about a half a mile later it began to have no power wnd when I gave it gas it would bog down. Then it died and would not start. I have got it to start...


it sounds like your fuel pump may have gone out disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter or the fuel rail which ever is easier to get to, then try to start the car if fuel does not spray from the line you will know that it is the problem.

I have an 01 hyundai accent gl 4 door 1.6 dohc. timing belt broke at 106,000 miles and bent some valves. got an engine out of an 03 accent 1.6 same everything with 35,000 miles. pulled old and put in 03...


The 2 components that I would suspect would be the Coil pack and the Cam sensor.
I had a similar issue on a Sorento. Intermittent miss on one of the cylinders. The Coil pack was bad. When I replaced it, there was a burnt smell to the bad one. It sounds like things were a bit bumped around with this engine as the O2 sensor was bent. The Coil packs are very fragile.
Hope this helps. God Bless

Only runs rough after running and fully warmed up


when it is cold there is extra fuel going to the plenum chamber its like pulling a choke on a carby that is why it is running smooth but when engine gets hot it is back to normal supply of fuel and yours is not normal.one reason might be not enough pressure in the fuel rail due to defective fuel pump or pressure regulator or blocked fuel filter. it is best to check your fuel pressure first.

V6 engine idles rough after restarting, then smooths out


My first guess would be a dirty carb/fuel injector set. Run some fuel cleaner through the tank and see if it gets better. You might have to do it through a couple of tanksful. How long since you've had a tune-up? It might just be that time.

There is a little tester calles a NOID, it plugs into the harness connector to the fuel injector and flashes if there is a signal, they only cost a few dollars.
