Either the injectors are chucking too much fuel or more likely the plugs arn't sparking check if they are,does the engine run with a misfire or just very lumpy?

What would cause my 2002 ford explorer xls to idle rough


What engine do you have? is check engine light on? You said you changed coil pack, but what about spark plugs? could be fouled by normal wear, improper application/plug gap, oil fouling (oil residue on electrode) caused by bad valve guide seals or bad piston rings or gas fouling(electrode wet with gas) caused by bad plug, wire, injector, O-2 sensor. Could be caused by a vacuum leak (hose or intake manifold/gasket) Check all vacuum hoses for cracking/chaffing, repair as needed. with engine idling spray carburetor cleaner at base of intake manifold watch for rpm increase if so there is a vacuum leak. Could be stuck open egr valve, Could be compression problem or timing chain problem. This is the best I can do with info you provided. Hope it helps.

I have a 1992 nissan pickup 4cyl. I replaced the timing chain following the Haynes repair manual I got with the truck. After replacing everything I started trying to start it............it tried to start...


I am guessing that you have the valve timing set so there is low to no compression. Remove the plugs and check compression. You need min 100 lbs to have the engine run properly. Or if you have a vacuum guage hook it to direct manifold vacuum. With the engine cranking around you should have 1-3 in of vacuum or it will not start. It will smell like gas because the gas keeps enternig the cylinder but not being burnt. then it contaminates the oil.

EGR - remove the 2 bolts that secure it to the intake ... soak it in throttle body cleaner and use a toothbrush to clean the carbon out - use a new gasket and re-install - EASY to do !! probably the most common cause of "hiccups" and "rough idle". have you cleaned the throttle body, it may be dirty. you can try by changing plugs, but it can also be a bad coil. but the light on dash would come on if it is misfiring. there are so many possabilitys for jerking. go to auto zone site and sign in, type in your problem and it should tell a few causes.

you will have to remove upper intake plenum the black plastic part there is a o-ring around the area you are speaking of. now if this engine didn,t have the intake gaskets replaced before installing now would be good time because if you keep vehicle believe me you will have to do sooner or later these engines came with plastic intake gaskets that are notorious for leaking to do this you will njeed to remove both upper and lower intake manifolds I just started a job on 99 tahoe today before lunch and customer is driving tonight replaced upper and lower intake gaskets fel-pro makes updated gaskets for this engine that has thick metal shim and rubber gaskets a great improvement that ends this problem as for your vacuum leak at opening for fuel lines don,t see often but is possible hope this helps

I would suggest that you have a blown head-gasket. The Z24s have a tendency to blow the head-gasket between #3 & #4 cylinders. I would do a compression check. You will probably find low or no compression on those 2 cylinders.

Sound like an air / vacuum leak to me.
Re-check for an air leak on #2 cylinder inlet manifold.
Use a propane torch (unlit, of course) to flood propane gas around inlet manifold/head flange & gasket area.
If there is any change in idle speed during this test you have a vacuum leak.

Cylinder #2 Misfire-after intake manifold replaced


It's possible he has two plug wires crossed, or pulled a spak plug wire apart replace #2 spark plug wire First. To test check the firing order and make sure all the wires on the right plugs and the correct place on the distributor, if it is right, then buy a can of carburator cleaner and spray around the intake gasket if the engine revs up when you spray the carb cleaner around the intake manifold with (engine running) if the engine rpm revs up you have an intake leak.

1991 chevy s-10 bazer sucks to much gas and into the exhaust


I had a similar problem with gas smell and bad gas mileage. The problem was: a gasket that goes around the carburetor covering the jets had worn out allowing gas to pour out and burn off the hot engine. The gasket cost less than $1 to replace. When properly mounted, the gasket stopped the gas leak, which stopped the gas smell meriting an exponential improvement with my gas mileage.

Totally rebuilt top end wont start


Dheck all your ground straps. Also, check your fuel pressure regulator with a pressure gauge. But if you have one ground off it can cause the car to overfuel. Hope this helps. Phil
