Keeps backfiring & spluttering wen i drive it but seems to b ok wen i go for long drives, also engine just stops sometimes wen i driving


Engine backfiring and spluttering is usually related to engine valve timing and spark timing if the engine is low to medium mileage and has not been pulled apart it is most likely related to spark timing
The crank angle sensor loose or intermittently faulty can cause all the symptoms you have described another cause although unlikely these days could be either water & or too much methanol in the fuel
Have your crank angle sensor tested change to 98 {premium unleaded} lower grade fuels are false economy let me know how you get on with this

If it idles rough at a stop light or sign, or in park but runs fine above 1000 - 1500 RPM my guess is gonna be a vaccum leak. very very common, check near your charchol canister.the leak it-self sounds like a whistle but the car usually sounds like a cammed out hot rod. spray carb cleaner around the engine and listen for an increase in idle speed. if the car idles like that and has lack of power, check that your spark plug wires arnt sitting ontop of the engine and have melted or heated up enough to wear down to allow a spark to jump through to the block instead of the spark plug. NOTE* do not inspect with the engine running you runnthen possibility to get shocked.

Windstar 2003 engine jerking and spluttering only when driving.Now check engine light has come on


Check lights have been on all vehicle for 30 years,
so you should know what to do

Check for codes
A PO301 thru PO306 would be an ignition
coil misfire

The jerking could be ignition or the EGR Valve or both,
along with other possible issues

Have to start somewhere & diagnose parts of one
system at a time.

Unplug vacuum hoses at egr valve,plug them and test drive.

Give us the codes you got.

'97 540i spluttering & cutting out


best bet is to go get any codes that may be stored in the PCM. This will take alot of the guess work out of diagnosing it. Or remove the spark plgs and replace them.. If you have 50,000 or more this could be the cause but a code may tell you which one is the issue

Daewoo cielo 1997 spluttering @ startup


Try to reset the IAC valve on the throttle body it has 4 wires t it .
procedure is as follows

turn ignition key on (don't start the engine), unplug the IAC valve, turn the key off, replug the IAC .Do this 3-4 times .Then start the engine while holding the pedal down at about 2000 rpm then let the rpm down slowly till idle. Sometimes the throttle requires cleaning then redo the reset.

2003 Ford KA engine light on, spluttering and steam from engine?


Scott,

If you're ever driving along again and you smell coolant, see steam, or your sensor (thermometer) shows up on your dash again...IMMEDIATELY stop the car in a safe place and turn the engine off!!!!!

You may have gotten lucky this time, but I can't say that for sure because I can't see your car.

The thermometer is an indicator light telling you that for some reason your car is overheating (not circulating coolant). It could be the thermastadt is stuck shut, coolant is low, hole in the radiator hose, water pump is shot, and on and on, and on.

When you run a car's motor that hot you stand the chance of warping the heads (big dollar repair item).

I would strongly suggest that you call a tow-truck, and have your garage/mechaninc look at it. It will be alot cheaper this way instead of having to repair warped heads and any other damage from runing the car that hot.

I hope this helps you, and thanks for letting FixYa.com make your day brighter
