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.

1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette overheating


Is it leaking antifreeze underneath the engine at all when it sits overnight? If so I would say the water pump is shot. If it isn't leaking, it could still be the water pump but it might(hopefully) just need a new thermostat. And driving it when it's hot like that to the point where it starts to run rough means you run it too much like that and your engine will blow up and there is probably already damage. So check it out before driving it to much more.

How do i know when my spark plugs are bad


Bad plugs would cause a miss and the engine would run rough.
Your check engine light would also be on and you would have codes for the missfires.

My 1998 oldsmobile silhouette sometimes just cuts off sitting in traffic, any ideas/solutions???


Here are 3 very common causes for an engine stalling.

1. Old air filter, ( if it's old it restricts the engine from getting vital air.)

2. Oxygen sensor, ( if this part is bad the computer is unable to determine the proper fuel/air mix ratio and often leads to stalling.)

3. MAF, ( mass airflow ), sensor. Similarly can cause bad fuel/air mix ratio, and often leads to stalling. This can also reach a point of causing your engine not to start, particularly in cold weather.

I hope this helps you.

Engine runs rough at 2500 rpms


sounds like you have a missing cylinder could be caused by a spark plug or wire or even a coil pack if your car has a coil pack if not then it could be your distributor cap, it could have a crack getting moisture in it causing the rough idle. hope this helped

1998 WINDSTAR CSERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS ON


it's not likely a bad o2 sensor would cause it to run rough, but the catylitic converter, which is what the o2 sensor reads the flow of, would cause the car to idle and run rough.If you take it to an auto parts store to have a diagnostic test ran on it( most major parts stores will do this for free), thecodes it gets would help pin point it alot better.
