SOURCE: 93' 4.3 chev runs rough at times

Have someone turn the key on while you watch the injectors. If any gas leaks out of the injectors, without cranking on it) replace the o'rings around the injectors.

SOURCE: 87 chevy 350 fuel injected pickup wont run smoothly

sounds like your egr valve is gummed up or bad. this is located behind the throttle body and has a single vaccum tube connected to it. if the diafram is still good you can remove it and clean it with WD 40 until the plunger works smooth

Saturn Ion running loud and rough


Check for other loose heat shields.
The shield you removed would allow more noise to enter the cabin too.

With that many miles, I would expect to find the injector as the issue. But it could also be a sticking valve. Or a valve that has problems opening as the oil gets hot. You may want to do a compression test hot and cold too.

97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30


I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

check for coolant in the oil, or oil in the coolant.

98 calivier hotter it gets crappier it runs.


I have serviced this problem before. With engine hot unplug the coolant temp sensor, Located on the thermostat housing (there may be two).If the car begins to improve with sensor unpluged replace the sensor probe( both if two).
DO NOT drive car with sensors unplugged, car will overheat.
