SOURCE: intermittent fuel starvation,high rpm at idle restart eng all ok

You should verify you have proper fuel pressure. Check with a gauge when cold and hot. Possible clogged fuel filter is not allowing enough gas to feed engine. Verify pressure at idle and also under load when driving.

SOURCE: 2002 ford taurus fan doesn't work

Does it work on any speed..If not check the relay..If it works on high only,,its the fan resister..If all fails you have to unhook the the fan wire and check for voltage with a test light or multimeter..If you have voltage then the motor is bad

My 95 rodeo idles ok but when I put it in gear it starts to vibrate. what could this be?


What is the RPM while in gear? Too low and it will vibrate. Also check for weak/broken motor mounts which will cause a vibration in gear

Engine vibration


check for loose engine mounts(usually 15-19mm nut that tightens the rubber mount which dampens vibrations) located either side of engine block not sure if they are in engine bay or underneath near axles. check gearbox and Eng oil levels if everything seems to be ok it may be a gearbox problem and not completely engaging disengaging gear

Low RPM and Vibration in First Gear


Possible dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

I have 2002 Exscort zx2 and I have replaced all the motor mounts but I still have vibration in the steering wheel, only when Idle though what could be causing this vibration? My mechianc has looked at it...


This is normal on the automatic transmission ZX2. Ford has put out a TSB about it and they only explain that you can adjust the mounts but no one that I know that has had this done said that it worked. These engines are internally balanced and at lower engine speeds, the vibration gets transferred into the car and the driver feels this. Unless it vibrates really bad in park or while driving, what you feel is normal for this car. I currently own three of them and all of them do it. A friend of mine has had three and they all do it. It isn't as bad in the manual transmission but all of the vibrate a lot.

Vibration through the car Transmission-motor Linkage?


Check to make sure both headlights are tight,,,when it rattles at idle go feel the headlight and hold it and see if the noise and vibration goes away,sometimes the headlight has too much clearance and causes a massive vibration,,if thats not it try...loosening all the motor mounts and rock the car back and forth and them retighten them,it reseetles the mounts and sometimes fixes the issue,,also check the lower engine and trans mounts for wear.

Unknown Vibration


motor mounts can be changed without pulling the motor the load percent change that the other guy posted is normal and a vaccum leak would cause the engine idle to wander when in neutral. if you need info on how to change mounts let me know

Enging vibrating at idle


1) It is very possible your engine mounts can be worn, but

2) the vibration you feel may be also due to the idle itself degrading to the point that the car is shaking. Does the engine sound like it is getting ready to die? what is the engine rpm when you feel the vibration? You may just have a dirty throttle body. In this case, clean the throttle body plate and bore and the problem will go away.

3) did the problem seem to come on suddenly or gradually, if gradually, you may just need some plugs and/or wires, and/or cap/ignition rotor, etc. (a tune up)

4) Also, do you only feel the vibration when the AC system is on?

5) there are some other reasons for abnormal engine vibration at idle, but the above are some of the most common, and simpler to repair.

All the best with the repair!
