I would definetly do a tune up if its not plugs or wires i would make sure u change the fuel filter same time because more times then i can count that fuel filter gets clogged, or the pcv valve get clogged. So a tune up in my opinion will fix this problem, I hope this helped

How to fine radior fan switch on 2002 ford focse

Located lower driver side corner of radiator. To check, a test light will help. Disconnect the harness from sensor, with test light find the power wire. Other terminals will be your low/high temp. circuits. You can use jumper wire from power terminal and connect to to either the low or high. If fans run, could be your sensor that's bad. If no power present on harness to begin, check fuse.

When shifted into 4wd, why does it feel as though there's a brake engaged?

Newer ones have clutches in them. Usually the clutch unit is replaced. This is costly. Shop around at junk yards. At a transmission shop, it could be up to two thousand dollars for the T case. Keep it out of 4 wheel drive till you replace it.

Idle up down

hunting or surging ilde. name the 2 RPMS, low and high , is it hot or cold engine this issue.? 400rpm or 1000 or 2000 all are diff.causes.
no year, stated. so cant help.
but ill answer in the generic,
1: the ECU (got a carb,? )
the ecu controls idle speed at all times.
if not , there is a problem (you)
A: air leaks in the induction will make motor race at some point the ECU/ISC loses control. and hunts. trying hard to correct it.
b: egr stuck open idle too low, iSC cant correct it,, bad EGR.
c: engine EFI running way too leak starving for fuel so it hunts for 2 reasons < ISC hunting, and lean does that.
lean is gross power loss and opening throttle bogs the engine.
so is double bad. ISC makes it worse,

all this breaks down to 2 reasons.
1: ISC bad. in some way (gummed up. or restricted inside)
2: bad fueling or air leaks. vacuum leaks.

try answers , the hot cold question and the 2 speeds, of the hunt.
lowest rpm and highest of the hunted range of RPM.

Hello, I need some help. I have a 1996 Honda Civic ex (automatic) D16y8 VTEC engine. Today I had a mechanic replace distributor with a new one (not rebuilt) from an auto parts store. The mechanic did not...

Yes, the ignition timing could be off enough to cause the symptoms and the check engine light.
I would take it back to the shop and tell them to set base timing, clear the code, and refund you the cost of the knock sensor and labor.
