You have to scan it and see what code is in it if it's a p0171 or p0174.check for vaccum leaks.they will cause both your engine light to come on and run rough.if you have ap0301.p0302 ect.that means you have a miss fire

How do I fix, bad idle in suzuki swift , check light on, no codes.


the title is contradiction
" check light on, no codes."<< totally wrong
scan it one more time with a REAL scan tool this time. (there are DTC errors , or codes as you said)

what does bad idle mean? misfiring, or idle speed too low
or too high? RPM, or
surging?

say what that means please.
and more important is engine hot or cold ? failing.???? or both????
there are over 50 causes.
but can be broken down to simple physics and gauges.
1: engine bad, lost compression.
2: engine cant breath, dirty air cleaner
3: ISC stuck closed or open or just stuck. (bad idle air supply)
4: bad spark, 1 or all 4 (never had a tune in this decade.
5: cam drive, slipped (belt) causing #1 failure.
6: air fuel mix too lean, and causes rpm drop and ISC fails.
7: air fuel mix too rich and misfires.
8: egr stuck open, it misfires and ISC gives up.
9: cat clogged, engine cant breath #2 like.
10: and the vast other reasons for misfire.

we cant drive it, see it or hear it misfire, so.....????

there is a test for all 10, ask. or get car serviced.

My 2007 Chevy Silverado loses power when I come to a complete stop no engine lights appear but if I turn off the truck the problem goes away for awhile .


Loss of power, but no mention of rough or inability to idle (including stalling). If those additional symptoms are part of the problem, check for a vacuum leak to the intake. Listen for hissing or sucking noises near air hoses. Look for loose, cracked, or broken air hose connections. Check PCV valve...Cheap to replace, could be sticking, then loosen after truck sitting with engine off. A vacuum leak will not give any light indications, and vehicle will seem to run normal when applying gas, but will want to stall or run rough (or want to stall) when at idle or sometimes when taking foot off gas when slowing down.

Loses power going uphill


Could be low fuel pressure, or a long list of other things.
Is the check engine light on ?
Does it feel like it is running rough, or starving for fuel ?

We just purchased a 2002 Ford Escort. Tonight, when starting the car, it ran very rough and then died. We started it again and it ran fine after that. It has happened twice and it has only happened when...


Could be a idle air problem. The injector could be leaking when you shut it off ..Try some injector cleaner see if it gets better..The idle air shouldnt run rough just idle real low or sometimes it will get stuck and idle high....Are you losing any antifreeze..If you are the 2.0 SOHC engine bad about leaking antifreeze into the cylinder and makes the engine run rough until it burns it out..See if you can see the smoke coming out when it happens..White smoke indicates antifreeze,,Black smoke indicates fuel..

2000 ford focus engine light on. what could be


Hi
1 is the car losing power?
2 is the car rough at idle? or slightly over reving.

If so most likely cause for 2 is the air mass sensor, this go's to the air box you can cleran them with carb cleaner and sometimes this will fix it.

Get back to me for more ingo.

Truck losing power and service engine soon light on


Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.
