SOURCE: idles rough ,loss of power

I had this same problem on mt 2004 jetta. It had 85,000 miles on it. one day it bagan to idle rough but seemed fine when at higher sppeds/rpms. after a weekm I took it to the dealership and it turned out that a few of the coils/springs were shot. they also replaced my spark plugs, costing me about $550 total. But the car runs great again.

i would check the plug wires and the coils you check the plug wires for bad spots at night start the motor up and look at the plugs if you see a spark arch out the wire and to a peace of metal then the plug wires need to be replace.

I have 2005 chevy colorada with the 2.8 4 cyl it started running bad all of the sudden check engine came on started rough idle. got the codes read got these 0014 cam sensor,0017crank sensor,101 mass air...


My guess is it's a timing chain problem, especially if it has a lot of miles (140K +) That model engine is notorious for bad timing chains.
I have the same engine and basically have had the same problem. Have a friend with one ('07) - same problem.
It's a pretty expensive problem to repair. Labor (by the Flat-Rate manual) is in the 14hr range plus parts. Used engines with low mileage (60K) are rare and around $2K when you find one.

93' cavalier, very rough running. Missing badly at all speeds and loads, including at idle in park. changed plugs and no change in symptons. Is this an injected motor (4 cyl)?


Yes, this is fuel-injected engine. Look for vacuum leaks and then consider replacing the ignition coil (located on back side of the motor). Just follow the spark plug wires and you'll find it.

Check engine light and rough idle


Take it to Auto Zone or Advance Auto and ask them to pull the engine fault code using an OBDII scanner tool. There really isn't enough information to even guess at what the problem MIGHT be. 4-cyl? 6-cyl? Turbo charged? Mileage?

97 cavalier the brake pedal is hard and the anti lock goes off when press the brakes. the problem goes away as i drive.


You could have a vacume leak. If so your engine will probably be idleing rough. Check the hose coming off the booster going to the engine.

Engine light came on , it runs very rough,shakes, lost pwr


It sounds like an ignition problem. Make sure your battery is good and connections are clean. I would start by replacing the plug wires and spark plugs. This is a good tune up procedure anyway and will increase your mileage some. Clean or change the air filter. The obvious thing is to make sure the oil is new and filled to the correct level, not overfilled. Your engine will love you. I hope this helps.

Rough Idle - 1997 Cavalier RS 2.2L SFI-OHV 4-134


WEll it is possible it could be the idle air control. one the most comon problems is the fuel pressure regulator. To check it find the fuel rail the fuel regulator will have one vacuum hose on it remove the hose and check to see if it is wet with fuel if not have some one trun the key on or start the car if it leaks fuel out the regulator is bad. This would explain why its hard to start when it sits because it floods out the motor
