I have a 2002 Lincoln LS that up to 3000 rpm seems to run fine. at 3000, it starts to shudder and miss. any ideas/


Yea , take it to a qualified repair shop that has a scan tool that can show misfire data . That's the best way . What engine ? 3.0 L or 3.9 L . Both have COP - coil on plug ignition system . I have replaced a bunch of these coil's an spark plugs . The spark plug get so worn the spark can't jump the gap an fries the coil and if it goes like that long enough it will short out the driver (transistor) in the PCM engine computer . The last one i worked on cost the owner over 2 grand. New computer , programming , new coils , plugs , plus my labor .

Vw polo 1.2. three cylinder 04 plate when warm develops a misfire. turn off and start again cures the problem instantly. have replaced plugs and coil packs..........no difference. help thanks


vw polo 1.2 3 cylinder engines have a problem with the valves being to long and once they wear into the valve seats they use up the reserve travel in the hydrolic tappets and remain open when the valve lenthens when hot causeing missfires but shrink when engine is switched or causing a tempery cure

My ford Taurus stalls out unless my foot stays on the gas. I was told it was the engine coil so I replaced it and no difference. I was also told change the spark plugs and I did and still no difference.


You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try eliminating any vacuum leaks and cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.

My 2003 polo 1.2 is juddering at idle when warm, under load its fine. It seems to be slighlty better when cold but once warm it almost feelds like it miss firing


Hi ,
Imbalance of engine at idle can be caused due to many reasons..

1: Spark plug
2: Ignition coil
3: Cylinder head
4: Piston rings

Please let the spark plug and ignition coil checked asap and if that shows ok, then do an engine compression test , this may help to resolve the issue.

have you isolated which cylinder is misfiring?
either way I would have a compression test done .. to find out which cyl is not firing pull 1 spark plug lead off at a time until you get the one that makes no difference

54 plate 1.2 vw polo juddering when idle


100% sure it shows one of your cylinder compression is weak, please do a compression test to isolate the problem and get the head/pistons checked . This is a known problem with VW/Skoda 1.2 3 cylinder mills..

2001 MPV Runs Rough at Idle and Low end Throttle


This could be a bad fuel injector. Lean implies low fuel to the cylinder which will cause a misfire.
