Try doing a basic tune up first. Change your plugs, wires and fuel filter and see if that fixes the problem. You're thermostat is connected to your radiator hose on the top part of the engine.

What does the thermostat have to do with it idling rough? Check your plugs and wires, make sure your throttle body is clean, make sure you don't have any vacuum leaks, and make sure your motor mounts are good. The thermostat should be located at the end of the upper radiator hose by the engine though.

SOURCE: rough idle and engine light is on my 2003 aviator 4.6 engine

Problem! I have a 2004 Lincoln Aviator and sunday I filled it up with cheap gas. I noticed Monday on the way to work when I got up to about 20 to 60mph the car strating missing. It was not jerking just missing a little. As the week passed I've noticed that it began to idle rough and it is still missing aroun 40 to 60 mph. I assumed i needed a tune up due to the car has 75k miles on it. I took it in for a tune up yesterday and it did not fix the problem. the mechanic said that i may be having transmission problems. I drove it to work this am and notice that now the emissions service light is on. Any clue to what is going on. Alos noticed this am when I stop at t red light it is missing like the car wants to stale but it does not. Could this be due to bad gas? I have like a 1/4 of that gas left to run out and I'm going to refill with prenium gas and a bottle of Lucas fuel injection. Any other ideas or suggestions of what is going on with this vechile?

you may have a blown head gasket ... water can get into a cylinder .. that would cause the rough running and the water goes out the exhaust .. thats why you cant find the leak .. often as the engine is running you will see bubbles in the radiator .. thats exhaust gas getting into the water jacket ... you may also see a little steam in the exhaust (white smoke) ..

Thermostat on 06 mazda tribute is causing rough idle.


thermostats control the coolant temperature and rate of flow of the coolant through the radiator . It has no bearing on the idle speed of the engine unless you are in an extreme overheat situation. Run the fault codes to find the faulty sensors .

I had a similar experience. Finally the car started overheating. Turned out the thermostat went bad and the radiator blew a leak. Had those replaced. Runs great.

Mustang ran hot now starts but engine sounds rough, still running hot


this could be a number of problems , firstly with engine running remove radiator cap see if large bubbles of air appear, blown head gasket. second depending how long engine is running before temp rises to overheating, thermostat. third, O2 sensor could be damaged this will cause rough running and slight increase in engine temp.(unlikely if idles well) fourthly damaged valves (inlet/exhaust)

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.
