The car dies at stop and idles rough at low rpm


OBD Tools 365 Days Shop
A rough engine idle can come from a variety of causes. During the winter months, cars may have a harder time starting and will shake when first turned on. This form of rough idle can easily be mistaken for other problems. Engine idle problems can also be attributed to malfunctioning components, such as spark plugs. Holes in the air intake valve can also cause a rough engine idle because of excessive amounts of air being drawn in.
The rough idle of an engine can signify a power loss in the car. This loss of power could lead to other problems, such as excessive gas consumption. This lack of power can also lead to additional wear on other parts of the car. Ignoring problems with the engine of can lead to a massive breakdown that will require you either to make costly repairs or replace the car entirely.

Check engine light on, vibration at idle


Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.
Some specific causes for the light to be on are:
Gas cap left off, not tightened, not installed correctly, or needs to be replaced.
02 sensor.
Engine misfire - error might clear itself after 3 complete warm-up cycles; not restarts, but warm-ups.
At start up for a bulb check - Should not stay on.

Car rough idling causes
misfiring engine is among the most common causes of a rough idle. You may notice your car idling roughly when it's in "Park" or when you're driving it and stop at a stoplight. A rough idle can be caused by damaged spark plugs or spark plug wires or a burned-out valve. It's important to address the cause as soon as possible to avoid potentially damaging the engine. Engine repairs are almost always expensive.

Rough idle


check you throttle position sensor first then fuel pressure regulator, then fuel pump. i have a 92 and had to recently do a massive overhaul. my rough idle was caused by a malfunctioning tps with a small exaust leak causing it to race and an intake manifold gasket. also check your idle speed adjustment settings.
