Troubleshooting a rough idle


Have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes. Misfires are from loss of fuel, spark, or compression. Check the fuel pressure, check that all spark plugs are getting spark, and if all good so far, test engine compression. Low compression in a cylinder will cause misfires and loss of power.

It could also be a vacuum leak- a loose or cracked vacuum hose or an intake gasket leak.

What causes engine miss at idle under load?


I'm not sure what you mean by "under load", maybe with a/c on, etc. Also is it really an engine misfire or a rough idle. If it really is a misfire, a scantool at your local parts store should be able to read a code for that. Sometimes a rough idle could be due to just a cracked or disconnected vacuum hose or dirty throttle body. You didn't say whether it runs ok at highway speeds. Sometimes a rough idle can be cleared up a lot with throttle body service or injector flush. Sorry, this is the best I can do with information provided.

01 toyota avalon with codes PO300-306 car runs rough and idles rough now while driving it start loosing power and making a snake rattling sound


Is the rattling sound coming from the exhaust? I'm wondering if perhaps you have a loose catalytic converter. P0300 (multiple cylinder misfires) and P0306 (cylinder #6 misfire detected) are probably the cause as to why the car is sluggish, shakes, runs rough and lacks power. Make sure to take a close look at your ignition system (spark plugs, ignition wires, coils...). A spray bottle filled with soapy water can help you find voltage leaks on the wires and coils. Just spray the wires and coils and look for arcing. Replace any component that arcs. Other causes can be fuel injectors, vacuum leaks...).

Hi. I have a 99 camaro 3.8l and I'm having some


Sounds like a fuel problem,You did the coils,plug wires and sparkplugs, that should of taken care of the misfire,You may have a EGR that stay open and doesnt close properly and it doesnt set a code why the ECM compensate for the false air.Now this causes rough idle,and smooth cruise with no misfire until you get to stop or idle speed.The map sensor this can also fail when warm especially if the vacuum it is suppose to get is not met. And a failing MAP causes a lack of power. A TPS failing causes a stumble and lack of power but no misfire.cansmo_184.gif
