Cleaning injectors can do wonders. Physically removing the injectors to clean will do the best job. I've heard also that chemical cleaners can help.

Rough idiling, stalls when putting in2 drive, sluggish,


Sounds like a misfire or a bad valve. If this isn't what your looking for please let me know. The more information and details, the better. The vehicles maintenance history, "Engine Light" status (on or off), what tests you have run, and anything that you have noticed. Rough idle issues can be caused by more than one type of failure. Examples: clogged fuel or air filter, stuck/damaged EGR valve, restriction inside exhaust, spark plugs, timing, or low fuel pressure. There are more examples but it would be better if you could tell me more. Good luck.

2010 mustang air conditioner blowing warm air and hesitating


Very strange.
Usually the ac compressor cuts off if the computer detects a major problem with the engine such as a power loss on more than one cylinder.
And if that happens the computer should store trouble codes for the issues.
Is the check engine light staying on ? Will the ac work if the engine idles ?

Why does the engine become sluggish when A/C is running?


The air conditioner runs off of the motor and takes a good deal of power away from it. I ALWAYS shut my air off when preparing to pass a vehicle or getting on an on ramp.Unless you have a diesel or a V 8 the air conditioner will affect your performance of the motor greatly.

My vehicle stopped dead at set of lights and would not start, called RACQ he installed new battery $165 Stated that was problem, drove less than 1/2 kilometre down road, felt the vehicle ****. Continued...


Sounds like you have a fuel issue. It could be a fuel pump cutting in and out. It could be fuel pressure regulator, or an injector not spraying correct. I think it's time to find an honest educated repairman.

Loss of power while driving. Thought it was a vapor lock. Had this once before and the car later started. This time engine turns over but will not stay running.


Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

The possible cause of loss of power is:

1. Low fuel pressure (Need to check the fuel filter and fuel pump. Fuel pressure needs to be above 45psi)

2. Dirty air filter (try replacing the air filter if its dirty)

3. Clogged fuel lines (use fuel line cleaner additive)

4. Bad ignition timing (use a timing gun to make sure your engine timing is correct)

These are the most common causes of loss of power for any combustion type engine.

I hope this helps you isolate the issue. Thanks and good day.

Car feels sluggish driving then sudden loss


Has the check engine light gone on? The focus is going into 'limp' mode to avoid damage to components, due to some problem. Even if there is no check engine light illuminated, bring it to a parts store for a free check of any codes stored in the cars computer. You need this info to figure out what is wrong. If after having the parts store scan for codes you still have questions, re-post them with the codes here.

Air conditioner works every once in a while.


Hello..

Sounds like your A/C compressor is not cycling off with the pressure cycling switch. The reason the system gets cold on hard acceleration is because your car is equipped with a wide open throttle A/C cutoff relay which turns off the compressor to reduce the load the compressor takes away from the engine.

Try to replace the pressure cycling switch that is located on the AC accumulator. (the black canister close to the passenger side firewall)...The switch can be replaced by unscrewing from the accumulator without refrigerant loss because a schrader (tire type) valve will stop refrigerant from leaking out. Hope this helps...

Loss of power and drive but engine is still running


The water bubble under the dash might be a heater core, and the slow and sluggish might be caused by the transmission, try checking the wires and plugs, they may need to be replaced, we just changed out the wires and plugs on ours and it did wonders!
