Could be a few things. If you can get the vehicle to an auto parts store, they can read the code for free and tell you what the fault code may be.

    But it sounds like it could be your fuel pressure regulator, throttle position sensor or the linkage is kinked.

I have a Kia Rio 2005 Cinco( 5 door) Running really rough until I push down gas pedal,,, Then it seems lOk still a little r bogged down', It doesn't stall just runs rough without accelerration? Oxyg


To begin with, is your "check engine (CE)" light on? If it was on and now its not, you need to replace the bulb. If CE lights is on, find out the codes before doing anything. If bulb is good and "CE" does not come on, begin with: (1) gapping spark plugs, (2) replace spark plug wires (if haven't changed them within the last 2), then the coil. If your Cinco is still idles rough, adjust gas pedal until idling smoothly. If this still doesn't help, replace your two oxygen sensors. If still running rough, the converter. After doing all this and problem is still present, take it to a mechanic you trust.

Rough idle while in gear. There are no engine lights on. I replaced the spark plugs 6 months ago and seemed run better. Rough idle came back, so I cleaned out the PCV valve and it helped for the short...


Are your rpm's low when sitting at a stop light and vehicle warmed up? You could check your TPS (Throttle position sensor) or maybe your egr is plugging up, or one of your plugs or wires could have gone bad, maybe the coil on one of the wires is bad. You really need to plug a code reader into the ECU and see if there is a code being thrown. And NO, all codes will not cause the engine light to come on.

Rough idle


Sounds like a automatic choke sticking....Take the air duct loose from carb..While accelerating engine spray bottle throttle spray in.....as the car tries to die...stop spraying...Repeat 3 or 4 times.....It will clean your injectors. Runs alot better...Remember....bottle throttle spray...not carborator spray

1993 ford escort automatic 4cylinder idles rough occasionally. No check engine light I just need advice on what it may be it runs excellent once I put it in gear and go


This is often caused by hard engine mounts and a dirty idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Clean the intake following these instructions, that should improve the idle issue.
Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes.

When idleing once in a while it starts running rough and shaking truck, 1998 k1500 350. no engine light. when i gige it gas it smooths right out. engine seems like its a little louder than normal.


Here is the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours.

To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

My jeep keeps stalling on me and the check engine light never comes on, people tell me it may be the fuel pump. i have been told it cant be hooked to compuetr because of the check engine light not com


A stalling problem doesn't have to turn on the check engine light . Try some basic thing's like cleaning the throttle plate (body) air passages for the IAC - idle air control valve . There are videos on youtube , also check for a vacuum leak !

2003 chevy cavalier(2.2 Ecotech but not the flex-fuel). about 140,000 miles on it. Threw P0172 and P0300. Changed coil pack, plugs, MAP sensor. Runs OK but idles kinda rough. If it gets REALLY cold...


Hi, did you check the fuel pressure regulator? A torn diaphram will cause these symptoms. The regulator is mounted to the end of the fuel rail on top of the engine and looks like the picture below. Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator and plug it with a golf tee. Then start the engine and watch for gas to come out of the regulator vacuum port. If it does, replace the regulator and you should be good. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My 2004 Expedition 4.6 ltr. has a rough idle. It goes Up and down and will stall at stop signs and traffic lights. Where can I find the PCV valve?


PCV has nothing to do with drivability or any thing else pertaining to engine performance. It regulates the air flow out of the crankcase to burn blowby gases from the rings. It never needs to be replaced,just cleaned every four years. That is if you have no hose leaks.

Buy some CRC Throttle Body Cleaner and follow instuctions.
I wouldn't even run engine,just spray and clean throttle plate.
Plate is sticking open and throwing TPS Voltage off at idle. PCM is trying to figure injector pulse, with wrong info,thus rough idle.

Car runs rough and has no power, seems to be missing at idle and under throttle. Check engine light is on


check the battery then if low in electricity, then charge it if missing in Idle throttle then check and repair the fuel pump or carburetor assembly.when check engine lights on it means there is problem that is happening to the engine.like low fuel is going through the engine.and the power produced is less.
