I would check the ignition coil(s) and if they are ok then the next culprit would be an ignition control module.

My 2001 Ford Taurus SES all of the sudden started to shake horribly. It does so when in idle AND when attempting to drive. I drove it to work one day and no issues, no noises, no rough idle, no hard...


. The answer is to replace all the spark plugs and wires. Even if the plug appears fine to the ***** eye, and the wire has no visible damage, there could be problems with it that cause it not to fire properly. if you have coils on it, check them also.
An ignition coil that is failing will still provide current to the plugs, but it might not be enough for a full spark and the car will run sluggishly. If the current being provided by the coil isn't consistent, the car will run rough. make sure your getting good spark from coil first. good-day !

My 95 Windstar idles very roughly. It starts just fine but after about 4 to 5 minutes it starts idling roughly. I put a new air filter in but that didn't do anything.


Hi, Try to replace fuel filter. It maybe clogged up and making engine run rough or poor. Also check and replace spark plugs. A bad spark plug will make it run rough too. Good luck.

a flashing check engine light indicates a misfire. depending on the vehicle it could be as simple as new spark plug wires

Fuel cutting off/rough idling/O/D light blinks/shifting gears


What kind of spark plugs did you put in it? The 4.0 litre engines in these trucks require PLATINUM spark plugs. If you put the wrong ones ( regular copper) it will miss fire and run like a bag of garbage. I had a similar problem with mine, the previous owners said "oh we changed the plugs and wires". They also changed the ignition coil not long before I took delivery. So, truck still ran like **** they said they even had to reset the inertia switch under the passenger side kick panel, everyone thought it was a fuel problem. I decided to pull one plug and volia..Wrong plugs. That also explains why they had to change the ignition coil. Hope this helps.

Engine light is blinking and the car runs rough,not enough power.


You shouldn't have taken the car back,nor should the shop given you the vehicle,if you were willing to have it properly repaired.
The MIL Light is an indication of an issue or two and you said it runs rough and has no power. What more does a shop need. Repair it.

Is the Fuel Filter fairly new
Did they Clean the MAF Sensor,and make sure your air filter cover is on correctly,and you have no vacuum leaks.
They can look at all sensor data and resolve this ,if they wanted to.

My 2001 Hyundai is running rough, the check engine light is on and blinking. We changed the spark plugs and the wires but it still is running rough. The Check engine code says there's a misfire on 2 and...


Hi:
usually misfire codes are caused by a bad coil pack or an ignition module. You didn't do yourself any injustice by changing the plugs and wires, as that is good preventive maintenance, but you need to keep up the hunt for the problem. You can visually look over the ignition coils, and the modules too, but often they visually look ok, when they act up like yours is doing. You are down to trying to swap out some more parts!

1996 chevy cobolt 6 cyl. "engine power reduced" idols extremly rough shaking entire engine. When pushing on gas pedal car will sputter acting like it wants to die.


It sounds like you have a fuel issue or spark issue. Pull your spark plugs and see how they look. If they look fine then test the fuel pump. You could try to run to fuel system cleaner through the fuel system and see if there is an improvement in idle. Could be any of the following problems,

coil
spark plugs
spark plug wires
fuel filter
fuel pump
injectors
air filter

Check the easy stuff like plugs, wires fuel pump and air filter first.
