Check spark plugs, coils and other components. Do you have any codes or engine light on ?

SOURCE: 2002 grand am 4 cylinder rough idle and rough running

Check the ignition control module. Sounds like the exact same problem I have had with mine. Took it to the dealership and the were able to tell me right away. The ignition control module is very easy to replace and is located on the top of the valve cover. Hope this helps!

Rough ride and sliding on snow


Hi Susan, This sounds like a tire problem. I find on my Suby's, that too wide a tire will tend to struggle with deep snow. An out of balance tire or out of round wheel can also make the car run rough. There is also the possibility that the car needs a wheel alignment. Have someone check out the steering components as well, to make sure there's not a more severe problem, i.e.: axles; ball joints; steering arms. This is critical so you can be sure your vehicle is road worthy.

Po305 error code


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 cavalier starts and runs ok from a cold start after a few minutes of warm up it starts to run rough and miss. If i try to drive it it will start out ok but won't shift automaticly but shifts fine m


Sounds like possibly more than on problem, crankshaft position sensor, or ignition module likely on starting prob which maybe affecting shifting due to hard code in ecm, or shift prob could be shift solenoid in valve body of transmission. Both parts readily available from local parts store

91 LEGACY STARTED RUNNING ROUGH


The cylinders are numbered as on the spark pack you changed. You might have done better putting the seafoam in the tank as an injector cleaner. Not sure why you changed so many parts, you seem to know how to get the codes from test connector lead hookup and the blink pattern. You might also want to check the fuel rail pressure and the crank and cam angle sensors. Before replacing the injector, swap the #4 injector with the adjacent one and see it the code moves with the injector or stays put. If the code stays on #4, then check the injector wiring, if it moves clean or replace the injector.
