Question about Cars & Trucks
Already bled the coolant system, temperature guage doesnt go above normal, before engine warms up it idles very low almost where she stalls out and sometimes it feels like shes surging. oil also has a strong fuel odor to it.
You have a leak! Take to a garage where they can pressure test the cooling system and find the leak! After running the pressure builds up so when you turn the engine off it expels the coolant through the leak but while running it flows past the leak!

take the cap off of the radiator (whil engine is cold) start and run the vehicle. keep runnig 30mins after the vehicle is hot keeping notice of the rad fluid level.
keeping the cap off will prevent the pressure build up that woiuld keep the air in the system, keep adding water or antifreeze as the level goes down. this may take an hour or so.
also with the cap off, you will be able to see if your water pump is operating correctly. you will visibly be able to see movement in the rad when the pum is engaged.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.

1.Verify that the cooling system is full of coolant and there is no air in it. 2. Remove the air boot from the throttle body and cover the throttle body with something that will stop the airflow . the Fast Idle Valve is the problem.
