Does it stop misfiring after it warms up??
Oil in the spark plugs, or bad spark plugs can cause this, as well as many other things if it does it even after it is warmed up.

It is a misfiring cylinder if it is running real shaky(I suppose it could be an exhaust manifold leak to if its not shaky) If it is shaking I highly suggest you seek a repair immediately as this can damage expensive components like Oxogen sensors and your very expensive Catalytic Converter!!!

SOURCE: had trouble starting the vehicle for two days on

We have the same problem we changed the fuel pump and it fix the problem for about a week, the van started puttering and didn't start until the 20th try. Now we are looking at the fuel filter. What a way to spend the 4th.

Check the Alternator / Powersteering belts .
One of them will be damaged and loose.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: truck making noise after replacing water pump, think i may have put belt back on wrong

I have a very loud squealing noise in my 2003 mazda mvp engine when i accelerate. We removed the belts which would eliminate belts as the problem. And that's that it. If anyone has any info please let me know.
Thank you

SOURCE: 1992 Pickup: loud squelling sound under hood when started...

Sounds like a loose belt.

There are a few things that can cause a belt to slip like that.

The belt could be not tightened all the way. If it uses a sepentine belt with a tensioner, the tensioner could be bad. If it is not a serpentine belt, then you will have multiple belts and the one that is making the noise can be loose. Use something to pry it tight and tighten down the bolts holding the component th belt goes to.

It can also be a bad pulley. Pulleys have bearings inside of them, at times the bearings will go out and make the pulley hard to turn. You can usually find this easily by taking the belt off and turning the pulley with your hand. If it is hard to turn or makes a grinding noise when turned...it is bad and needs to be replaced.

Old belts can also cause this along with a belt that is wet. There is a spray on Belt Dressing that helps get rid of noisy belts, but I consider that a bandaid to a bigger problem.

SOURCE: when accelerating the truck vibrates and feels like tires are rubbing on fender well or something

It might be the universal joints in the driveshaft are worn out or busted. Or something might be wrong in the rear end or transfer case if its a 4x4.

Hello, sounds like you may have a engine miss, things like spark plugs, plug wires, fuel injectors can cause a engine miss. you will need to have the system scanned for trouble codes. once a trouble code has been pulled form the system you will have a much better idea what the problem might be

98 ford zx2 2.0 dohc stalls out woulnt idle long & doesnt pick up power when you push gas if you push gas fast will backfire.will gain rpms if gas is pushed slow


It sounds like you may have a clogged-up catalytic converter. Try cracking the exhaust loose at the flange in front of the engine where the Catalytic converter bolts to the exhaust manifold. You don't have to take it all the way down, just 1/2" or so. You may have to take the bolt loose on the bracket where the pipe mounts to the oil pan to get the cat to drop down. After you get it down a ways, start it up and see if it runs better. (It will be very loud) If it idles and accelerates without dying or backfiring, then your cat is clogged up.

Speeds of 60 or above my car feels wobbly.sometimes my throttle cable (?) gets stuck so my car will be at a stop but the engine is still accelerating and lately it's sounds kind of like it puttering w


normally your engine should not cause your car to wobble, however a misfire can cause this to happen, as far as your throttle cable, you need to replace it and check the transmission kick down cable (co located with throttle cable) replace if necessary. The jerking when shifting is probably due to incorrectly adjusted kick down cable, when adjusted correctly the transmission with shift smooth. Hope this helps, let me know
