SOURCE: 2001 ford 4.6 liter idles rough sometimes dies

may need 1 0r more coil packs replaced,or it could be what happened to my 2000 4.6---1 lifter expanded out and wouldnt collapse,causing the rocker arm to fall out of place and the valve could never open...try unplugging 1 coil pack at a time while running and listen for a change in the way it runs,if there isnt a change then its probably a bad coil pack,find a cylinder that runs and swap the coil packs,if no difference then its probably the valve staying shut.

My first thought was a partly clogged fuel filter, or water in the fuel. That would cause those symptoms. Another thing you should look for is a broken loose or cracked vacuum line. With the engine running, wiggle all hoses around and listen for a hissing sound. A length of vacuum hose held to your ear can help to narrow it down. Also check the intake bolts for tightness, and keep in mind that GM had some real **** for intake gaskets for a few years. Dump some soapy water on the intake gaskets where it meets the head, and see if it bubbles like crazy. ( engine running) If it does, your intake gasket has blown, and that would cause all the problems. Do you have an engine light on?

Rough idle when placed in drive. 04 optima

If you have a rough vibration at idle when in D and not when in P, it may be due to the motor mounts. Even one that has gone bad will cause a vibration at idle when in Drive. I was able to isolate the problem by disconnecting the transmission mount under the airbox and suspending the transmission while i started the engine and put it in Drive. When i did that the vibration went away.
When i reinstalled the mount it came back. My problem is the transmission motor mount under the airbox.

Idles low

first off you might want to check the mass air sensor, if that's bad the engine will think that it's getting enough air when it's not... you can also adjust the throttle linkage cable so that the throttle plate will be more open when your foot is not on the pedal... hope that helps...

Rough idle when a/c on

it is normal for your car to idle down when the ac pump cuts in just have your timing checked and adjust your idle as necessary at about 750 rps at normal idle with ac off also just make sure they havent overtightened the ac belt and pulley.
