EGR or Idle Air Control valve, those would be the other changes to make.

First thing to check is fuel pressure regulator for a torn diaphram. Find the regulator at the end of the fuel rail and pull the vacuum hose off. Is it full of gas? If not, plug it with a golf tee and start the engine. oes gas come out of the regulator where the hose was? If there is gas, replace the regulator. If not, please get back to me.

I have a 99 ford f150. Sometimes it runs perfect, then out of no where when I try to accelerate it vibrates bad and becomea hesitant. When I came to a stop I switched threw all gears and it seems like it...


This sounds like you might have a bad plug wire or something else in the ignition system is arcing to ground. A quick way to verify this is to run the truck in Park at idle. Next, spray the ignition wires with Windex. You'll notice the truck starting to rough up and might even see the bad wire arcing to ground. A complete tuneup would be recommended in this case.
I hope this helps! :)

2004 durango shakes at 45


Hi,
What was serviced a few weeks back? Sounds like it needs a tune-up @ least to start - spark plugs, plug wires.

At 103K miles I'd also replace the fuel filter, air filter, PCV valve. And if you look in the Owner's Manual it should have a maintenance schedule for other items that may need attention.

Have it checked out, have the cooling system "pressure checked" and see where the coolant went. When they find that, it may explain the other problems.

Multiple misfire & poor gas mile age,engine shakes crazy


A misfire could be a couple of things. Due to shaking, is your car out of time? Even when a timing belt brakes, some cars can go on driving, but it would be rough like yours.

Runs rough and engine shakes constantly


you dont tell me about first thing in the morning after the engine cooled /is it putting out blue smoke does it start easy /i came across a v6 in the past that done the same thing and even the old vw engine was known to do it ,broke the crankshaft,this would not allow the engine to fire right/advancing /retarting the timing.take all fuel filters out and put fuel direct to the engine and let it breath without air filter and see what happens, to what you tell me this lady is not getting enough fuel.but remember alwaws start at the start this whole problem could be a bad spark plug line .why not take a look under the hood after dark if everything is ok then you know to look further.come back to me on this one .adrian;;;;

Hi,
The air cleaner mighty be clogged causing insufficient air supply. That is why it runs fine on idle because less air is needed and when the engine demands for more air, there isn't enough.
