    Acts like it runs out of gas and dies upon acceleration. Friends say "modulater". Just started acting up within the last week.

    I have the same problem. I have taken numerous times to Meineke and they do not find anything wrong. It feels as if it is going to stall. I then depress the gas pedal and it stops. Also, when it happens, the car feels like it is jumping up and down. Another problem is that when that happens and I apply the brakes it feels rough, like it vibrates very strong. What can be the problem? Can any one suggest the reason for it.

Take the car to a garage that has a computer. I had the same problem and it turned out to be the idler solenoid that is located on top of the engine on the fuel injector port. The computer will diagnose the problem in a short time.

Rough idle then stalls


Vacume leak or bad idle motor. With the car in park and running with the hood open listen for leaks moving your hand around the different hoses looking for a change in the sounds that you hear. The idel motor also makes the car idel up to 1500 RPM or so right at start-up then idel down, If it doesn;t the idel motor is likly. Check engine light is on when running? Test for codes, Follow code test charts don't skip any steps!.

2005 Audi A4 Rough idel..


what kind of engine do you have? if it is the 2.o F.S.I your crank case breather valve can be acting up on you and will cause these concerns. If you have a 1.8t check the wire harness going to you coils look for cracks in your harness the ground wire if you see copper that is you problem will need to get ignition coil wire harness and cut and splice in new wire harness

Car ideling roughly ...not stalling


sounds like you may have a problem with your Idle air control valve, located on the throttle body. this is what controls the idle when coming to a stop or stopped and turning corners or basically when your foot is not on the gas pedal
