My 02 galant runs rough when put in gear but in idle runs okay it also surges up and down replaced the plug wires


Okay, lets start with the oil you found on spark plugs when you were replacing them. this oil is coming from the valve cover tube hole area, notice the plugs go into the holes in the valve cover, there is a gasket the goes around the top of the tubes and when it leaks it goes into spark plug hole, the valve cover needs replacing .
this will cause rough idle and running problems, after replacing valve cover gasket the holes must be cleaned, using crab cleaner, spray into holes and use air to blow out . this may need to be done a few times to get oil out .
after oil is removed . then remove spark plugs and wipe them clean.
The next step is to find the air (vacuum leak) , you said you hear it around intake tube. check for cracks or broken vacuum line. this leak will cause idle problems and driving problems,

92 SL1 won't idle-wants to die without pushing gas-just put in new plugs


Remove, clean and inspect the idle control valve on the throttle body. These tend to clog up over time, or the stepper motor fails. Check this before anything else.

My car will start and idle fine sometime and sometime it dies and dies when put in gear


Engine stalls cold or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

I changed the engine oil, filter and spark plugs in my 1999 Volvo 940 (1996 cc). Upon starting up, the engine runs at lower rpm and "hiccups" at idling.

Whenever i put my blazer in gear it dies


I'm assuming it's the 2.8, I'm not sure when they started putting the 4.3 V6 in them.
Anyway, a few things come to mind when something won't idle.1. EGR valves. If they are open at idle, it won't idle. It's open at cruising speeds when the engine is warm, but not at idle or full throttle.
2. Idle air controller (IAC): This is a little electrical valve located on the side of the throttle body. It regulates the amount of air that the engine needs to idle at the correct speed. It makes up for stuff like cold temps, being in gear, or having the A/C on at idle. They also get full of junk and jam up, or simply fail electrically. Replacement is extremely simple.
3. Ignition timing. If the timing is late (********), engine vacuum is lowered and it struggles to idle, even without the load of a transmission in gear.
4. Vacuum leaks. Crunchy old vacuum hoses make everything worse.

My Toyota Camry 96 isn't starting. New battery the alternator and starter are working properly and there are new spark plugs . The engine is turning over and it's getting fuel but it just doesn't start....


Faulty MAP or MAF sensor, EGR valve stuck open, spark plug wires don't match firing order, large vacuum leak to intake manifold, very dirty fuel injectors, idle air control valve defective, poor compression in cylinders due to incorrect valve timing or leaking fuel injector o-ring seals.

RPM stays at 1500 instead of 1000 and check eng lght stays on


changing the spark plug will not gonna change anything good in the system if i were you,you might check your idle air control valve if functioning right or check you wires goes to it their are possibilities that it might burned up or you might wanna pull out the idle air solenoid they usually tend to have carbon in it cleaning it may resolve the problem sometimes..
