Take the vehicle to the nearest auto Zone or advance auto parts and ask them to run the code scanner on it. Most likely it is the O2 sensor but I assume it may show you a code indicating a misfire on one of your cylinders as well or may just show that.

Check the ECU engine temperature sensor. If it thinks the engine is hot, it will struggle to run when cold.

Son let his car run out of gas, and when he filled it this code appeared with rough idle and stalling code 2002


I had a something similar to this happen to a girlfriend of mine. She has a 98 escort and it ran out of gas and the service engine soon light came on after she filled it up. If this is what your talking about check your owners manual. Most of the time if there is really nothing wrong with car you can drive it around ( Generally 20 min in town and 10 on the hwy with 4 idle periods (4 times of the engine being at idle) - do not cut engine off) and the light will go off. The rough idle code most likely happened when the engine ran roughly because. it was running out of gas.

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.
