1- Only rough when running
2- Is idle running OK, no problem?
3- How long since the turn up?
4- What kind of Gas filled in? Premium from Shell, from Chevron or from Costco?

The more gathering facts, the more accurate a solution can be provided.

If you say yes to question 1 and 2 then your problem is the O2 sensor.
The rest of the questions to remind you that what need to be done to prevent a potential problem. Cheers.

Sounds like you have a misfire. have plugs wires and coil packs changed.. its common around now with those cars. if your doing it yourself take it to your local auto sotore that performs free diagnostic services. Identify which cylinders are misfirirng and replace the parts accordingly, for assurance replace them all and you know you have completely eliminated the problem

You've got a bad sensor. Take it to advance auto, orielly's or autozone. They will hook up for nothing and tell you what sensor is bad.

check the battery then if low in electricity, then charge it if missing in Idle throttle then check and repair the fuel pump or carburetor assembly.when check engine lights on it means there is problem that is happening to the engine.like low fuel is going through the engine.and the power produced is less.

2000 f-250 running rough, overdrive light flashing


Get the codes that were saved when the "engine light" came on and post them here. (You can get them retrieved for free from Auto Zone).

I'm going to take real *wild* guess that somehow that rough spot you hit actually impacted the oxygen sensor and disconnected it or damaged it.

Engine light is blinking and it runs very rough/low power in gear.


Check the coil pack. Same symptoms on mine. It went at 74,000.
You can get the resistance specs from a shop manual. I have been told the plastic engine cover traps heat and makes short life of the coil pack. I removed the top engin cover, cosmetic only after replacing mine. You will probably need spark plugs also they are probably fowled by now. If you have not changed spark plug wires in awhile in would not hurt.

Random multiple misfirings


Here is a list of possible causes. You should not drive the vehicle if the check engine light is flashing all the time, you can cause even more damage. It could pay to have a professional find the real cause.

Spark plugs that are incorrect for the application, cracked, improperly gaped or worn can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An IC module that failed to correctly control the ignition coil(s) will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
Poor connections, broken wiring or wiring that has shorts to ground can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times. NOTE: Check connectors that might be pulled apart as the engine flexes or wires that short to ground as they pass near brackets or shorts to ground on the exhaust manifold.
Fuel injector(s) that are shorted, plugged or partially restricted can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An ignition coil(s) that has low output, corrosion on the coil tower(s), is carbon tracked or arcs to ground will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
A PCM that failed to properly control the injector or ignition timing will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low


Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

Runs rough


How long have you had this problem? It could just be a bad tank of gas. Other things to check:
1. fuel pump and filter
Could be running on only 5 cylinders due to
2. spark plugs/wires
3. plugged fuel injector
Any problems with electrical? Like lights dimming at same time as running rough?
4. could be bad alternator putting excessive load on engine.
