Engine lopes while idling

The fuel pump went out and it was replaced with a new one. I was told that the fuel filter neede replacement but did not have the funds to do it. The problem only happens when holding the brake or just idling. It is not as bad when you take the vehicle of drive gear.

The fuel filter may be inhibiting proper fuel flow. When you drive it pushes fuel through but there is less pressure to push the fuel through at an idle.

Battery drain on 30a fuel injector fuse 99 ford escort


The power through the fuse is to the fuel pump, this only runs long enough to pressure the fuel behind the injectors so that when they open the fuel is an high pressure. So you will normally hear it when you put the key in and turn it, before you start the engine, and then while driving it will be on. Your fuel pump is running longer than usual, because the fuel is not getting up to sufficient pressure. This would also account for the poor running. If you do not have fuel leaking all over the floor, the first thing to replace is the fuel filter. These get dirty over time, especially if you ran the tank dry in recent months. If its blocked the fuel pump tries hard to suck fuel from the tank through it and fails.

Lets start at the beginning. Did anyone check fuel pressure before and after replacing the pump ?
Has anyone checked the fuel pressure regulator and the injector spider ? The 4.3w engine uses a spider with one injector that supplies all 6 cylinders. And it runs at 65psi or more.

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.

Engine idles rough at red lights begins loping rpms drop to almost killing, then cycles back to normal, then repeats rough idle drop in rpms and loping, back and forth until I rev engine or take off


You could have a clogged fuel filter, if you haven't changed it in awhile. You could have a leak in the intake system somwhere also. When you slow down, you get less power to the engine. It may need spark plugs and wires as well, if in need for a tune up.

I'm a mechanic and it sound like this fuel pump isn't right, not working, or may be drawing air. if it's in the tank it can't really draw air. so replace your pump with a good one with warranty.

Loping idle with a '98 Subauru 2.5


This usually happens when the fuel pump is loosing pressure.

I will just advice you make a replacement on the fuel pump. It is located in the fuel tank beneath the back seat.

Be sure to consider the rating on the fuel pump when replacing.

Good luck and rate my solution.
