Troubleshooting a rough idle


Have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes. Misfires are from loss of fuel, spark, or compression. Check the fuel pressure, check that all spark plugs are getting spark, and if all good so far, test engine compression. Low compression in a cylinder will cause misfires and loss of power.

It could also be a vacuum leak- a loose or cracked vacuum hose or an intake gasket leak.

Rough idle and smells like gas when driven


When checking for Vacuum leaks, did you use a water spray bottle on seams and vacuum lines and EGR pod?(engine running)

Check for air leaks in exhaust before O2 sensors. O2 thinks its running lean from air leak in exhaust header and enrichens fuel charge.

Fuel injectors dirty, not closing tight. Switch injectors to other bank and see if Error Code moves to relocated injectors.

Bad spark plugs, check if you have fuel runners in your intake.

Idle good when cold, hotter it gets the worst it idles especially when sitting at stop lights


simple test for a vacuum brake booster
star and run the engine at idle without applying the foot brake
if it gets worse when the foot brake is applied , it is a vacuum leak in the booster ( replace the booster )
otherwise check for failed vacuum hoses including under dash control lines , vacuum leak at the manifold or EGR unit

Heavy idle, random misfire code 04 trailblazer


I would start with the inlet manifold gasket, these are know to break down causing vacuum leaks which can cause this issue, also check around engine for other vacuum leaks

1991 skylark ideling very rough


Misfire, a misfire is when you have a low cyclinder contribution this can be from a coil pack not firing to a open injector that is not atomizing the fuel in the combustion chamber to a large vacuum leak that is affecting that paticular cylinder.so you have a misfire. High HC (hydrocarbons) fuel not being burnt.2 misfire that concern does the vehicle rough idle smoothes out at higher RPM? If this does check the EGR it simple car running rough at idle feel the EGR is it hot to touch ? Then the EGR vavle got stuck open. another way is pulling out a spark plug wire and checking spark this will determine if the coil is working for that particular cylinder if you do this you need to make sure you dont break the plug wire you will have to wait for the engine to cool down and loosen the plug wire out of the sparkplugs and get it ready for a engine running test.

Idles rough. when under load, it sputters like a cylinder is misfiring. no smoke or leaks. any idea?


well. if it idles rough without a load and then worse with a load i would try changing spark plugs and ign. wires. also try pulling out your idle air control valve and clean it out. if that doesnt work look up testing for your throttle position sensor. check for worn vacuum lines and check for vacuum leaks. if it runs rough throughout driving it will be ign. or fuel delivery. get some injector cleaner and throw it in your tank. if non of this works then your in the same spot as me bud. oh and check your camshaft position and crankshaft position sensor and also your speed sensor.
good luck to ya bra

My engine occasionally misses and a rough idle


My 1993 caprice had the same issue.
Would it happen to down shift out of overdrive on the slitest incline.
if so, one of your plugs is missing under load. Mine turned out to be a wire.

Buick Century 97 runs rough and stutters when cold and gas applie


Your cat should last quite a while now it is replaced. I recommend testing coil packs and module. Change plugs and wires and double check your vacuum hoses.

1985 f150 rough idle


An exhaust manifold leak would not case it to run rough. Check vacuum lines that go to the in take manifold. If you have a line that is open it will get too much air at idle and cause a misfire intermittently. You also need to check plug wires. How long have the plugs been in the heads. Check the rotor and cap also.
