They shouldnt have jump starter for one being a newer car and so many electrics it can cause problems with the cpu. also if they did not fill the oil filter it may contribute

What causes my car to only start when I stop cranking the starter?


Check battery voltage when cranking the engine. It could be below 9 volts. It sounds like the voltage is jumping up when you stop cranking the engine.

Car cut off while driving


Hi,
Bad news....if you ran low on oil, the car likely sustained engine damage and will need major engine repair/replacement.

A mechanic can determine the exact issue.

When i start the motor it has a rough idle


Buy 'CHEM TOOL' at your local walmart and start using it until the problem stops. Then use it every 3rd full tank of gasoline. If the car has lots of miles on it, change the spark plugs. Good luck.

2002 4.8l gmc yukon oil pressure problem


My suggestion would be to check it with a mechanical gauge.
You would need to use a Tee fitting to use the sensor to have fuel pressure.
If the mechanical gauge shows steady pressure at idle, it could be a problem in the wiring or the instrument cluster.

Car stalls when i press the gas when starting rough idle


Make sure it's charging ok.
Jump starting can cause trouble.
If you don't have a way to check the voltage ,put jumper cables
on it and see if it runs better.

I changed the oil and air filter on my 2002 Dodge Stratus. Also replaced spark plugs but it still idles rough while in gear.


sparkplug wires are a very common cause of misfires creating rough idling. as they age they tend to leak, meaning the soark jumps out of the casing to a point one the engine its not supposed to. Start there and if u have a check engine light see whats thats on for, its free at most autozones.

Car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive


Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

Won't start, engine wont rev above 2000rpm


Have the alternator tested. You are providing a low charge to the battery when you jump it and when taking it above 2K RPM requires more amperage resulting in the engine dying and the rough idle

Wont start sometimes, rough idle.


Sounds like a bad ignition switch. If your car has a lot of miles (200k miles is pretty common), then it's likely.

Once something breaks loose in the ignition switch, well basically you got lil pieces of metal floating around making contact where they shouldn't, which create the scenerios you're talking about.

The glow plug light may or may not be related. But you won't know til you get that first problem fixed.

If the rough idle eventually smooths up after it warms up, then yes, you probably need to look at the glow plugs and/or glow plug relay.
