U engine most likely need new piston rings, the fuel filter will not cause any type of deposit on the spark plugs How many miles, how much oil does it use in lets say 1000 miles?

Guy put engin cleaner in my car now it runs rough and i got a code p0300 what should i do 99 gmc envoy


•P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected

If the person placed the cleaner in the gas,
It is possible the cleaner has fowled a spark plug by loosening residue inside your engine and depositing it on your spark plugs. I would begin by removing plugs and cleaning or replacing them depending on the age of them.
If he placed cleaner into the oil, you will have to change your oil and filter because the cleaner loosens stuck on deposits inside your engine and could clog the oil filter.
After cleaning plugs, it would be a good idea also after cleaning plugs, to reset your cars computer. This can be done by disconnecting a battery cable for a bit, but it probably will reset all your radio stations also. Examine the spark plugs as you remove them. The electrode should be a tan color and the ring base should be a dark color or a little black. There should be no build up of deposits enough to cause a misfire.

Diagnosed with ignition coil problem, replaced coil, spark plugs & wires, inspected pcm, vehicle running rough in gear, acceleration is rough, smooths out when it gets going. oil on one spark plug....


2006 3.9 has to be a T-Bird or LS

There are no spark plug wires

It has Coil-On-Plug individual coils

Plugs don't fail --they get changed at 60,000 miles
give or take,say every 3 years

The front (2) O2 Sensors get repalced at 100,000
miles. The ones closest to the engine

Clean MAF Sensor at least once a year

I have no idea how you inspect a pcm,if your
at home & have no scanner or PC Based Software

Egr Valves fail early on those & other fords

You could test,not look at,actually put an oscilloscope
on the TPS Sensor

Any oil on a spark plug requires a new valve cover gasket

If a coil was replaced based on a code alone,you may have
replaced a good one,not what needed to be replaced if any

**** fuel economy


Replace the plug wires and plugs and inspect the old parts for cracks and corrosion(wires) and carbon deposits(plugs). Inspecting the air filter (replace if necessary) and replacing the fuel filter may help also.

Low oil pressure readout and engine runs rough it is a 740 IL 1995 I dont know what models below are 740 IL


Hi it could just be the oil pressure switch get that checked first.

Is the car putting out any smoke? if so then it may be the head gasket starting to go, leaking oil into the pots. give it a hard rev and check, also the valve stem oil seals could be going. this would cause the engine to run rough if the spark plugs are getting oil on them. remove each plug and check for deposits of oil or very dark carbon

there is a few possibilities but your better checking these first.
if no joy get back to me

My engine runs like the timing is off when I rev it or push down on the gas pedal. 3.5L V6. The engine runs smooth when the rpm's are low, in town driving. When rpm's go high, like climbing a hill, the...


This could be a TPC valve or sensor. That is a throtel position control. Your engine will idle or run at low speed fine or in stop and go traffic but highway driving or climbing a hill when the demand changes to heavy or light consumption it will surge the engine as it can't get a good read on what it is suppose to do. This is a resonable priced part and for about twenty bucks for a CHILTON manuel for your car it will give you step by step instructions on this and almost any project you want to try yourself. They will have these at your autoparts store.

Engine 258 i6 was running great - suddenly started to run rough and stall at idle - will start and run but not idle - when revving it smokes alot


Pull the plugs & have a look at them. Look for oil deposits, or liquid on them. Are you losing any coolant? Is it using any oil suddenly?

Have someone turn the key on while you watch the injectors. If any gas leaks out of the injectors, without cranking on it) replace the o'rings around the injectors.
