SOURCE: COLD START ROUGH IDLE

I hate to be the barer of bad news, but may be the head gasket.

My car started with rough idle. Then very hard to start in cold weather. Next started overheating, but no output from heater. Trickling sound from behind dash board. Overflow bottle overflowing.......

I replaced the water pump, radiator cap, thermostat, coolant, fan belts, power flushed the system. Nothing worked. Some research gave me the answer.

The head gasket leak was allowing exhaust gases to enter the cooling system, displacing the coolant. After use, as engine cools, coolant is sucked back into the system and coolant seeps into the cylinder. This gets worse over time.

First thing you'll notice is the rough idle as the spark plug burns off the coolant in the cylinder. (This is especially true at low temperatures.) If it is the head gasket, the other symptoms will follow as time goes by.

SOURCE: how to tune twin carbs on a mini from start ? the

First***Stop using starting fluid*** It will destroy your engine.
To set up the carbs, you will need to buy a vacuum balancer. This is a device that will show you how much downdraft each carb has. You then, have to adjust the linkage, so that they are the same. After that, you will need to adjust the fuel mix.
All in all, if you're not experienced in this, it is best left to a carburator shop, not most garages.

Why is my1997 bmw Z3 1.9 start rough for 2min then is ok


The EGR valve opens when the engine is warming up, which allows exhaust to enter the intake manifold. This is essentially "extra air" coming into the engine. The engine has an "idle speed control" function, which is either a solenoid or small stepper motor connected to a valve that allows a controlled amount of air to "sneak" by the throttle plate in the throttle body. Fundamentally, it is the amount of air entering a fuel injected engine that controls engine RPM. A defective idle speed control ("ISC) motor or solenoid can cause the problem you stated. (I do not know which type is used in your BMW.) Often, a check engine light will illuminate of the engine computer cannot adequately regualte engine idle speed.

Hard starting and rough idle


The idle valve is the most common problem for hard starting in cold weather. I would recommend having it removed and inspected for contamination. Sometimes they can be cleaned out. If it has heavy carbon buildup, you may have to replace it. (if the idle valve is removed, the shutter inside should easily move when you rotate it from side to side and you can also look at it with a flashlight for a visual inspection.

At first the truck idles extremely rough when cold cranked. This went on for a couple of days, now the truck will not start at all. It hits every once in a while while repeated cranking on cold start. ...


Sometimes on cold days if the cranking amps on the battery are low, then it will be hard for the vehicle to start. Also, check the oil level. If the level is low it will create a hard start and rough idle for the vehicle.
