Pull the oil dipstick and see if you have a lot of bubbles in the oil. If your head gasket is blown you will have coolant mixing with oil causing the bubbles. If you don't see the bubbles, you may still have a bad head gasket but should consider that it may a be a bad intake manifold gasket. Look on the ends of the engine block - where the transmission attaches on the driver's side and the drive belt is on the passenger side. Look for signs of coolant leaking onto the outside of the block castings at the base of the lower intake manifold chamber (it looks sort of like the flattened bottom of a V) . If it's there you may just have the manifold gasket leak. My '03 T&C with the 3.3l had this problem. It ran rough, and only with no pedal being applied. Driving was tough to get it to the shop since it died at each stop light and required the gas pedal to be feathered to keep it running.

If you have more than amateur skills you can replace it yourself.

SOURCE: Rough Idle

You might try going to your local auto parts store and purchasing some intake sensor or MAP sensor cleaning spray and clean your input sensors so theyll get an accurate reading to control your engine idle better. It may also be that your idle air control motor may be stuck or going out. These fixes will be much more easily facilitated if you go to your local auto parts store and purchase a Hains manual for your car and follow the step by step guide to reconcile this and other matters and redeem your car from an early grave. Good luck!!!

93 dodge caravan running so rough its not driveable, constantly stalling no power does start , sometimes get 20 min of normal driving and then it all goes to pieces again. Get engine codes 12,17, 32,

Code 12 just saying battery has been disconnected or run down low recently. 32 is related to loss of power light which shouldn't be a problem. I'd concentrate first on code 17- coolant sensor. Changing that may cure your problem, but if not, a good place to start. Sensor may be telling ECM that engine is already warm, thus too lean of a mixture etc.

2002 Cadillac Escalade code po102,po171,po174 comes up runs rough at start up then get better but still rough.

Anytime I see P0171 and P0174 together the first thing I look for is vacuum leaks. Specifically the upper intake plenum gaskets. The codes indicate that both banks of the engine are running lean. The rough run at start up and then gets better supports this.

With the engine running rough carefully spray carb spray around the area where the intake bolts to the heads. If the idle changes and or smooths out you found the leak. Be careful when doing this as carb spray is flammable.

I wouldn't worry about the P0102 (MAF code) until you figure out if there is a vacuum leak or not. If there is no vacuum leak than I would investigate that code further.

a code for lean or lean condition typically indicates a vacume leak ,lean refers to too much air or not enough fuel too much air or more air than expected "leans" the fuel mixture, usually a vacume leak or a leak in the air intake system is the problem also i would have the coolant temp sensor checked out

If it ran out of gas you may have sediment in the fuel lines causing rough running which may trigger a transmission code due to improper vacuum due to the rough running.

the most propable cause is you have a vacume leak. Check all intake hoses for leaks and spray brake cleaner around intake gaskets if rpms change then you found a leak also clean your mass airflow sensor
