Rough idle, misses ,,Engine hesitates,poor acceleration


typically these problems are caused by either fuel problems or spark problems. I would pull the sparkplugs to see if the engine is running lean or rich. Normally the spark plugs should have a nice tan color to them. If they are wet or black engine is running rich. Easier still depending on the year of your Blazer, is to have the computer scanned for codes. Usually this will tell you exactly what is wrong.

Does worn out rings cause a Mazda 626 Cronos V6 not to idle


It could but if its that bad you'd be burning a lot of oil and overheating. After changing all the filters and the PCV valve next would be to look into the EGR system. If your EGR hose is clogged it will cause revving and hesitation, uneven idle and often no check engine light. The other thing could be the camshaft position sensor needs replacing. Its typically in the distributor under the cap or hanging on the outside of the distributor. Usually the check engine light will come on if its the camshaft position sensor. Its worthwhile to check for engine codes even if your check engine light isn't on.

I drove my Buick to the store and found that when I tried to reverse the car would not engage in reverse. I pulled into a stall and placed the car in park. I turned off the engine. When I tried to...


It would cut off while driving, or hesitate then keep running while rpm guage would quit operating. Guage would return to normal function at next start up. After reading several posts here and elsewhere, and consulting with my mechanic, I decided to replace the crankshaft position sensor. My mechanic said he had done this before on this GM engine model. He gave me several possible causes and no guarantees. After replacing the CPS (about $120 including parts and labor), the car has not hesitated or cut off once. This was about a month ago. The problem was worse in hot weather, which my mechanic said was typical.

Changed plugs,plugwires,discap,rotorbutton. and engine still does not run smooth/please help,,


is your check engine light ON? Has your timing belt been changed? have your intake cleaned, including the IAC valve. Inspect your intake hose for crackes and leaks(this is very typical. If your intake hose is cracked or leaking, this will cause hesitation and rough idling/running. post comments or questions...hopefully this helps

Engine hesitates going uphill


You should definitely get it scanned to read the code caused by the check engine light. That will definitely help diagnose your problem. The hesitation could be a bunch of things - plugs, air filter... They don't cause CEL's though. A turbo problem could though. Most auto parts stores will read codes for free...
