This could be a engine missfire, a tune up may be required. You will need to have the computer tested to determine which cylinder may be causing the missfire then testing on that particular cylinder could be performed.

I have a 1997 BMW 528i that idles rough and now the check engine light came on. It idles rough, but when you press on the gas it runs smoothly. What could be the problem(s)? And the battery goes dead


Cars use the battery when they are not running. It is called parasitic drain. When the light comes on if you take it to a major autoparts stor like checker, advance or autozone, they can check it for free and tell you what the light means.

My 1985 Fiero is hard to start and when it starts it idols but when I put it in gear it goes dead ?? I put in a new Idol control valve and a new Throttle position sensor, I did notice when I put the TPS on...


try the fuel presure regulater it should be on the fuel rail ( that is if it is the V-6 ) it hasone vacum line on it and it has i think like 6 screws holding it in. it will cause just that same problem it will also cause it to flood at idle and foul plugs and make it idle rough you may have to chage the plugs also. you might check the vacum to. it should run on stright vacum from the intake.

Idles rough upon start , goes dead when letting up on gas.


If the bat went dead and was disconnected it can take 25 to 50 miles of driving for computer to reset sensors and controls. Sounds like MAF Sensor maybe reading different than when it was first driven. Did you drastically change climates or altitudes, New readings from when it originally was put into service. Slight changes in temp, alt and other variables gradually reset, if driving does not improve within 50 miles it will need diagnostics.
