Could be one or more of the injectors dribbling. I would cut open the fuel filter to check what sort of contamination is in there and if I found any suspicious crystals, water or very heavy amounts of dirt I would suspect injectors if all other tests were negative.

There was an area in America a couple of years ago where fuel was contaminated with sea salt and that caused lots of injector-related problems.

If all cylinders are working properly then the engine is being over fueled drastically. Check to see if fuel pressure regulator is leaking internally. Disconnect vacuum hose from regulator and see if there is fuel in the vacuum line. If there is the regulator is leaking and will certainly cause fuel in the oil and a very rich/poor running engine

How can I cheat the Idle up? I'm getting a low oil pressure light at Idle, 800 RPM. I would like to increase the Idle to 1000 to keep from getting the light.


that wont work trying to adjust idle can be done on older cars with a carburetor or the older throttle bodies new vehicles trying to do it will set off check engine lights on most sensors sound more like oil worn out---oil filter or pump problem change oil and filter and do a flush ---and put in an additive such as lukas - royal purple etc---also why did head need replacing was oil pump tested

How do u get the 1990 DODGE ramcharger to stay idleing


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Hi guys...my yaris is running rich, has poor gas mileage (360km on a full tank). and very slow and choppy idle (idles like a really old car) these are the things i have done so far : change air and fu


Do the following:
1. Clean the throttle body from inside.
2. Adjust the spark plugs gap to 1.00 mm.
3. Check fuel pump pressure. (44 Psi - 49 psi)
4. Remove the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes.
5. Connect the battery terminal.
6. Check the engine oil level and coolant level.
NOTE: Before starting the engine shut off all lights and loads for example room light, blower, radio, parking light etc.
7. Start the engine and hold the throttle at 3000 rpm till radiator fan comes on.
8. After the fan comes on release the throttle pedal and let it idle for 10 minutes.

Oil light stay on jaguar 2003 s type


That would indicate either a faulty oil pressure sensor or that the oil pressure is low. This would be caused by a faulty oil pump, partially blocked oil lines or lack of oil. Check and re-check oil levels whilst the vehicle is on a flat piece of road. Check you have the right oil dipstick for the car (it may have been replaced with a longer oil dipstick which would give you a false reading) or even that the engine may have been changed at some time! make sure you have used oil of the right viscosity (check the owners manual). If that doesn't fix it then give the engine a good flush out with flushing oil to clean out the oil feed system. refill with fresh oil. If that doesn't sort it, change the oil pressure sensor. (on the engine block). Get the engine diagnostics readout done to see if there are any error codes stored. If you still have problems then it may be the oil pump which will cost a lot of money to change!

1996 chevy s10 4.3 vortex lifters knocking at start up but goes away after 10 minutes idling. changed oil and filter oil pump reads 58-60psi at idle and seems to be working.


High milage? Try engine cleaner, run for couple hundred miles and then use an additive like Restore. If it's just dirt this may help. Make sure you are using the correct viscosity oil for winter temps. If it's from wear only parts replacement will fix it.

Why would there be oil in my cold air intake in my Blackwood? It runs but barely and extremely rough idle. I thought I got some very dirty gas from a gas can my husband used to put gas in it after he...


When oil is found in the intake it is most likely the pcv is malfunctioning. You say it is loose. The rubber it is seated in may be bad now that it has oil on it. You should replace the pcv and the rubber that it is seated in. If the problem continues then you may have the dreaded blow-by. In this case check all vacuum hoses for leaks. Blow-by means that your piston rings may be letting some compression past them. If so the pcv cannot pull the exess pressure from the crank-case. This usually requires new rings. At this point you need to deside if an engine re-fit is something you want to do or have done. This usually happens if the car i run low on oil or is over heated.Or running without/or bad breather filter.

Oil light when idling


Have an oil pressure test done.
One of 4 things could possibly cause that.
Bad oil pressure sending unit.
just the oil sending unit.
weak oil pump.
low oil---check oil, see if it needs any.

Temp guage barely moves and runs rough just off idle


Try a full tune up.. get Bosch platnium+4 spark plugs and Acel wires, do the fuel filter and air filter(i suggest K&N) buy some fuel injector cleaner or use Marvel Mystery oil. The ECU could e gone but hard to diagnose if the car needs a tune up.
