Have you checked for a broken valve spring. Repaired a dodge engine with the same running issue as you have described and it was a broken intake valve spring.

I would be suspecting a faulty condenser and coil as when they reach operating temperature they start to break down electrically.. Check that the auto choke is coming off and not tending to over fuel the engine

1996 acura 2.5 tl upon start up the engine goes to 2500-3000 rpms then the engine rpms start surging between 1500 to 2000 then after several minutes it goes to a normal idle and runs fine.


Hi, I had the same problem, and is now fixed. Replace your idle control valve, and the idle problem will go away, and your car will be PERFECT!

Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I would say it is either the idle control sensor or the map sensor. Usually, with the map sensor, you experience the car stalling out. If this is not happening, I would say change the idle control sensor. If you have a check engine light on, take it to Autozone and have it scanned to make sure.

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low


Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

1999 Ford SVT Mustang Cobra and a rattling sound


as for the rattling sound have you checked the heat shield on the catalytic converter, mine was loose and was causing a rattling sound when it was at idle, and would go away as the rpm's increased.
