Try new plugs and wires and some fuel injector cleaner should make a big difference

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.


Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

1989 Mercury Sable GS 3.0L runs rough and idles down and stalls


Sounds like you might have a stuck open EGR valve. Is the check engine light on. I would replace the fuel filter if it hasn't been replaced, also check the air filter.

Tune up question


That depends on your definition of a tune up. You should clean an air filter annually or sooner if driving on dirt roads. At least by 30,000 mis. you should have a new air filter. New spark plugs should be put in by 60,000 to 100,000 miles depending on your driving conditions (length of trips, etc.). Also a fuel filter(s) should be on your list if you have not replaced it or them by this age. How many miles have you got on your car?

Hello, I bought 1997 merc sable wagon with 125000


Rebuilding the transmission. That's quite a few miles on your transmission and the seals are finally letting go.

Rough idle


Mercury had a recall on 3.0 duratech motors in 2000 and 2001. If you get a fuel smell at startup then you might have a bad lower intake gasket, it could cause a miss if seal is cracked. Article No. 01-4-3 you can get it on AllData.

Also, check the PC rubber L piece that runs from the PVC valve to under the throttle control - it could be busted.

Make sure ignition wires are not cracked. If you haven't tuned it up in over 30-40K consider doing that.
