Need help on 2001 ranger pick up I tuned it up and now its missing at low speed


Get the trouble codes. Have it scanned for them. If the light is on, it likely set a code that will help in diagnosing. Also test fuel pressure.

Check engine light on a 2008 grand prix flashes at higher speeds indicating a miss in 2 cylinders, however, there is not a miss.


the supposed miss may be in fact a faulty injector that is not delivering the correct amount of fuel as set by the ECM This may be due to a faulty circuit wiring or failing electronic injector control. It will not be as a definite miss but more as a half fuel shot that will not necessarily be noticeable at speed.

Why does my 1998 gmc jimmy rpm drop so low when its warm causing a miss in the engine


The truck ECM computer controls the idle speed based on a number of engine parameters. Idle drops to a minimum preset level when engine coolant reaches normal operating range and the engine goes into closed loop control. This idle is typically set at around 575 rpm, and cannot be changed without reprogramming the ECM. The miss is not caused by the idle speed - unless the engine is tuned properly and has not lost compression, this idle speed can result in a rough running engine at idle (typical with older 4.3L Vortec engines). Best bet is to get a complete tuneup which will include checking the O2 sensors, catalytic converter and cleaning the IAC valve and throttle body.

I have a timing problem. Low idle speed that is intermitten and causes a stumble at starts. This problem also occurres during normal running RPM's. Missing electronic signal but intermitten?


Could be bad sensor whether crank sensor, sam sensor, idle air control sensor, bad ignition module, bad coil or even timing belt. if you have a service engine soon light/creck engine light it's more than likely a sensor. If no light, probably timing belt/fuel filter plugged/ or weak fuel pump.

2003 S10 2.2L low speed miss


Could be a vac leak or other ignition problem.
A vac leak could be covered up by the extra fuel and higher idle speed when the engine is cold. And if it is a gasket leaking the leak can get bigger as the engine warms up.
A faulty plug wire or coil could start failing when hot.
A solid miss-fire should make the check engine light come on and set a trouble code.

Engine misses/hesitates on low speeds. Runs fine


is the check engine light on? have you ever serviced the injectors? if not try that first because there are many things that give the symptoms you spoke of. but this is the cheapest.

1996 Plymouth Voyager missing violently, hesitating, dying,


Take it over to a Auto Zone store they advertize that they will read the diagnostic cods for free. with the check engine light on there are codes logged in the cpu. the codes will point you in the direction to go. this will save you lots of time.
