    is this easlier done and what are the costs?



    when the car is stopped if I put in neutral and give a little gas it runs smooth. Does it still sound like the crankshaft bearing?

    well then unpluge each of the plug wires one at a time while running but remember to remove the from the coil so as to not shock yourself if you remove one that doesnt change how the engine runs its that plug or wire if nothing you may try a new coil

Runs smooth then runs rough & rough back to smooth running.


If your check engine light comes on get it checked. To me it sounds like an engine misfire probably cause by a coil pack or spark plug wire going bad. The misfire should cause the check engine light to come on maybe even flash if the misfire is bad enough

I have a 96 Mercury Grand Marquis. The car lurches while driving feeling like it will conk out. Usually when going uphill on the highway and trying to accelerate or maintain speed. This does not happen all...


I have a 96 Grand Marquis with a similar problem. Also on the highway it would just conk out on me suddenly, almost felt like I was hitting the brakes, then it would pick up again. Eventually got to the point where it was stalling out on the highway and at red lights. One day it wouldn't start. Mechanic said the fuel filter was clogged solid. It has run well but every once in awhile still stalls out on me. From talking with other Grand Marquis owners and the mechanic the Mass Air Flow sensor may be to blame. He wanted to charge me $400 but I found the part online for about $85.

Engine light stays on, then engine light flashes while running crappy. If I touch the gas pedal just right engine runs fine and light stops flashing(but stays on). 1996 cavalier 2.4L OHV.


Most local parts stores like Autozone or Advance auto will check the trouble codes for free and help you get the parts you need to fix whatever is causing the engine light to come on.

The 1996 Chev Cavalier runs great. Then I stop,


It sounds like the fuel pressure regulator has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Start with that if your engine is flooding over with gas as you ****. If there is an Auto Zone around you area, have them scan the car for any DTC codes that may be related to your car not starting like a bad MAP sensor which would also cause a no start when the engine is hot. Auto Zone also carries the parts you will need to replace and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the parts with common tools. If your good with tool both job should take about 30 min to replace. Good luck and keep me posted

Chevy 350 express van 2000 runs great idles rough


If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?

Engine runs rough. Engine light on.


Try checking the spark plug, and the spark wires, if that doesnt clear things up then try replacing the roter under the distributor cap and check the cap for any corrosen
