Idles rough has power f150


If exhaust is rich, you may have excessive fuel getting dumped into cylinder(s). A sicking or leaking fuel injector can cause this. How many miles are on the engine? Improperly seating valves can cause this also. Or if timing is incorrect.

My 1999 grand prix stalls and dies at stops.


My Pontiac Grand Prix is also a 99, it has 216,+ thousand miles on it, it runs great, idles good, I need to replace the oxygen sensor tho as it shuts off on me while driving or sometimes coming to a stop. You might try checking the fuel filter and pump as well.

96 Crown Victoria runs rough when first started, idles smooth after a few minutes but has no acceleration before running for 20-30 minutes. Replaced the egr valve..little help, loses acceleration on the...


Ahhhh!, if only we could turn back the hands of time. Is the vehicle sending any signals like blue smoke through the exhaust, or using a lot of oil. Possibly running on after the ignition is turned off.These are all indications of high milage wear internally. Rings, bearings, etc.etc. Low oil pressure? Blinking oil light when at intersections. Any of the above?

2003 Tiburon GT, RPM's drop way down and idles rough at stop's?


More maintenance history needed. Oil changed regularly, timing belt replaced at 60 K miles, Engine air filter & intake air hose inspection?
Causes of the problem you describe are many. Recommend you have a technician check your throttle position sensor for any bad spots in the potentiometer... most likely cause when there is NO Check Engine light.

99 taurus running rough smells funny light flashing


The reason the check engine light is flashing instead of on steady is because it is missing bad and the car companies did this to tell you to stop the car as soon as possible to prevent damage. That is the only time the light will flash off and on instead of being on steady.
The cause is a little harder to diagnose. It could be a fouled spark plug, a bad plug wire, an injector, stopped up fuel filter. I can't remember if that car has the distributer or the coil packs but you could have a problem there. If you have never changed the spark plugs or fuel filter, it is well over a hundred thousand miles to do so now. They say to change them at one hundred thousand but 50 to 75 thousand is better and you will get better mileage. The fuel filter needs to be changed every 20 thousand miles now days because of all the cheap gas we have to put in the cars.
This is for mechanics or technicians. If no one out there believes me about the mileage on the fuel filter, then take the filter off and see what comes out the back. Looks like black water to me.
