I am in the USA so my reply is somewhat limited.
ETC is electronic throttle control. I would suggest you get the engine computer scanned for trouble codes, hopefully you'll find something to check out.

SOURCE: engine light has come on and car is misfiring,

Main causes of misfire would be loss of spark; the air/fuel mixture is too far out of balance to ignite; or loss of compression.

Loss of spark includes anything that prevents coil voltage from jumping the electrode gap at the end of the spark plug. Causes include worn, fouled or damaged spark plugs, bad wires or even a cracked distributor cap. A weak coil or excessive rotor gas inside a distributor would affect all cylinders, not just a single cylinder.

"Lean misfire" can occur when the air/fuel mixture is too lean (not enough gasoline in the mixture) to burn. This can be caused by a dirty, clogged or inoperative fuel injector; air leaks; or low fuel pressure because of a weak pump, restricted filter or leaky pressure regulator.

Loss of compression means the cylinder loses most of its air/fuel mixture before it can be ignited. The most likely causes here are a leaky (burned) exhaust valve or a blown head gasket. If two adjacent cylinders are misfiring, it's likely the head gasket between them has failed. Also, if an engine is overheating or losing coolant, it's likely the head gasket is the culprit.

You can isolate the weak cylinder by temporarily disconnecting each of the spark plug wires, one at a time, while the engine is idling. When there's no change in the idle speed, then you have pinpointed the weak cylinder.

SOURCE: 1997 Ford Contour with a rough idle while stopped

This is a common complaint on these cars. I own a 96 myself.
Assuming that you engine is fine and runs smoothly under normal operation, and just is rough "feeling" at idle while stopped; then I would suggest changing the motor mounts...the mounts may not be broken, but the rubber isolators get worn and soft, and transffer normal engine vibration into the chasis of the vehicle. Mine was doing the same after changing the mounts good as new again.
Please note...don't use cheap mounts, by the better grade/quality mounts.

2002 Buick lesabre check engine light flashing and runs rough help


You have a misfire ,spark plug ,coil etc. .. the flashing check engine light is to warn you that the misfire is severe enough to damage the catalytic converter ! You need to take it to a repair right away ! A new catalytic converter can cost as much as $1,000 . The shop will check the code's in the PCM . this will tell them what cylinder is misfiring !

TERRITORY 2006 ENGINE RUNS ROUGH WHEN ETC LIGHT COMES ON WHEN IT GOES BACK OFF IT RUNS FINE


The electronic traction control (ETC) is on because of a sensor failure. Run fault codes to find out the reason for the misfiring when the light comes on . It may be connected to a limp mode in the CPU to slow down the car when the ETC has a problem

Ses light flashing, truck running rough


Good Evening. I'm sorry to hear your truck is running bad, however I can give you a few points to check on. Your flashing SES light is because you have a misfire in your engine. The misfire could be caused from things like spark plugs and wires or a cap and rotor, low fuel pressure or bad gas. Or the other things like an intake leak or a bad valve so diagnosing is harder without the code that is set while your SES light is on. So get a scanner hooked up and see which cylinder it says is misfiring and go fron there back to the wire to the cap etc. Hope this helps and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Check engine light came on. original code


My guess is you mean misfires, not backfires. How does vehicle run when warmed up? I'm also thinking that the misfire codes are coming from a lean mixture situation. No other codes coming up either? Please reply with year, make, model, and engine, just to confirm heading etc., please.

1992 honda accord running very rough and check engine light came


If the car runs fine until it warms up, then the check engine light goes on and it all goes to hell (sputtering, dying, etc...) then it is most likely the o2 sensor. Take it to autozone and have them put it on the scanner, just be sure to bring it when the check engine light is ON.
