Hi,You need to carefully take out the injectors making sure you don`t break the rubber O rings after depressurising the system,then leave them to soak in petrol overnight,you then need to blow them out with an air blower attached to a compressor,by making a snug fit to the inlet side of the injector,a short blast should make a peeeep noise when you do this ,just a couple of short blasts if you have some carb cleaner spray you can sometimes get the little spray tube in the top of the injector to do the same thing,BE WARNED carb cleaner is very powerful solvent and not nice to you or anything else but is really good at cleaning out injectors so use a rag to catch the spray,I have done this lots of times and is cheaper than new injectors at £120.00 each if they are still no good after cleaning them you will have no choice but to replace them,the fuel distribution heads are also prone for siezeing so you need to check this but if it runs on 6 it should only be the injectors stuck due to dried petrol corrosion inside,Hope it works,let me know
Darren.

ROUGH IDLE 06/E350 MERCEDES - WANT TO TEST COIL PACKS AND CHANGE SPARK PLUGS


If it has not set a check engine light it likely is not a misfire, these models wear out the engine and trans mounts by about 80,000 miles. if it is misfire you will need to read the fault codes and go from there.

1996 buick century misfire


My 96 century with a 3.1 v-6 gave me fits for years shooting a 171 code(running too lean) I wound up changing the fuel filter and the problem went away. If it's been a while since the filter was changed, try it.

Cylinder 6 is misfiring. What was will fix this problem? It's a 5.7L v8 in a Chevy 1500.


You don't say what year the truck is, so I will guess on the fuel system.
You need spark, fuel, and compression for the cylinder to produce power. One of the three is missing.
If the engine has multi-port fuel injection the injector for that cylinder could have failed.
Could also be a plug, plug wire, or something mechanical.

350 chevy with elebrook carb will not idle below 2500 can you help? just rebuilt this carb. every thing went good all settings done by the book. very clean inside all jets cleaned or replaced. re check...


Manually operate the choke mechanism and watch to make sure it fully releases. Quite often mistakes can occur when putting the pieces back together and it won't fully release off fast idle.Are you absolutely positive that you didn't forget an o- ring or ball when you put the carb back together? Is there any chance there is a gasket upside down? Could the power valve be in wrong? These types of things could create that problem, there is too much gas going through your idle circuit.What happens when you turn in the idle screws? Are you sure about the timing? I don't have specs for a 1/2 ton but all the specs in my Chilton give me 6 degrees in California and 8 degrees everywhere else. These numbers cover all models of cars for a 1978 350. Hope this helps.

#6 cylinder misfire


misfired could be caused from either the spark plug, ignition wire/suppressor or the ignition coil. sometimes all 3 make up the misfire. depending on the year and make of the vehicle sometimes the injector or fuel distributor can play a part.

I'll keep this very short. Replace your Mass Air Flow sensor(MAF). You can get a used one usually and be just fine. Check out silverstar auto recycling in Fresno, CA.. Great service. I've done a lot of business with them.

1978 Chevy c10 pick up v8 350 my truck keep die even wen i chang gears i replace the fuel pump and check the spark pulges and check the vacuum it was good


Manual/automatic?? If automatic your torque convertor is probably going bad or your clutch packs in the tranny. If manual your clutch is gripping too much or not releasing properly
