Question about 1992 Subaru SVX

1 Answer

Very rough idle on my 97 SVX although It does not stall.

I have a very rough idle on my 97 SVX. It does not stall and excelerates smooth - any ideas? If I can find where the IAC is I will clean it to start. The PVC has been changed and I used a good injector cleaner (through one tank so far).

No power on exceleration smells like gas hs a hard time pulling hills 94 saturn sohc 1.9


Start by replacing the air filter and checking the operation of the fuel pressure regulator. Have the stored codes read out of your ECU, either by an auto parts store or a local mechanic, in order to ascertain a starting point for diagnosis.

It is very possible your fuel filter is clogged or catalyst is clogged. Might be a good idea to have a respectable mechanic diagnose the issue.

Sometimes idles rough. watch tach. it drops a little and vibrates steering wheel. few seconds later something kicks in and idles smooth, then it will idle rough again. does this 2 or 3 times, then is ok....


Its a 4.3 my first though would be if your not getting codes it throttle pisition sensor although it could be idle air control or EGR valve passages are clogged with carbon. Ihave the same thing except its in a blazer. Your going to have to pull some things off and look for things that don't look clean iac and egr although tps would be the first thing i would test you can do this a volt meter set to ohms take it off hook the meter to it and turn the inside of it if the meter dosn't go up evenly like the volume on a raido and starts ot jump around in a certin spot its no good

Hi Larry,

Firstly, you need to query your vehicle's onboard diagnostic computer to see if the computer has retained any fault codes.

Can you please confirm if you vehicle has this Data connector under the dash (above the knee on either driver or passenger side):

If yes, then I will show you have to extract the codes, by jumping the appropriate pins.

Await your response...

2003 Kia Spectra Loss of power during exceleration


Hi,
The air cleaner mighty be clogged causing insufficient air supply. That is why it runs fine on idle because less air is needed and when the engine demands for more air, there isn't enough.

Rough idle


I took mine in to change the plugs and they said there are four O2 sensors in the fuel mixture system and two were bad. I didn't replace them since they were a little pricey ($500 to replace both) and I have 103,000 on the car. Has very similar roughness and occasional oscillations, but no stalling. Hope this helps.
