I think that you need new intake manifold gasket. do the rpm's go up and down while engine is running?? if so, then gat your self some carb cleaner in a spray can and spray it at the injector rail as the car is idling/running . if the rpm's smooth out and car runs ok for few seconds, than the gasket is broken. good luck.

HI phillip, If you have acess to a OBD scanner. scan your vehicle and you will probably find the codes thar refert to your oxigen sensors. These sensors are what sends information to the vehicle computer to adjust air and fuel ratios. It is recomended that you change these sensors, and while you are at it, also change the spark plugs, and verify the condition of the air filter.There are the major contributors to poor gas millage, and poor performance. Be ready to spend about $150.00 tops. Good luck and let me know if this resolved your problem

its a possibility that you have a bad coolant tempurature sensor. symtoms of a bad sensor are: poor cold idle, stalling, ( rich mixture retards timing ) slow idle speed, cold hesitation, or stumble, poor fuel milage. remove and clean idle air control also, ( IAC ). good-day!!

I have a 95 f150 and it has a tendency to idle at 1100 rpms in park. i clean the idle position sensor and that didnt help. also it seems like it has no power when i drive it and i'm not getting very good...


symtoms of a bad coolant sensor. poor idle, stalling, rich mixture, retarded timing, low idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage. ( will also ****** timing ). in some cases you can unplug sensor and the pcm will compensate by running a default air/fuel ratio and in some cases allowing car to run without the sensor.Id just replace it !! if light is on, get vehicle scanned to find problem code. most all auto parts stores will scan for free, auto-zone etc. have a good day !!

Not picking up gas when engine is cold, sputtering, bogging out especially when travelling uphill, Is this some sort of a sensor maybe??,the spark plugs are new. thanks


check fuel filter. it is starving for fuel. unless the fuel pump is bad. check filter first, then go from there. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor--poor cold idle, stalling, rich mixture retarded timing, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage.

The car will pop alittle when you try to start it...It wants to start but wont..replaced the fuel filter,plugs.I have spark to all plugs..I can squirt gas into the intake and it will run but will not idle...


usually when a vehicle backfires, it is caused by the timing or a bad crank sensor. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor are--poor cold idle, stalling, ( rich mixture,retarded timing) slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, and poor fuel milage. check coolant sensor first. good-luck!!

No ck eng. lt, but have error codes on scanner


Yes. 1 is a bad O2 sensor and the other a mis-fire.

Best thing to do is a major tune up (replace plugs/wires/fuel filter/PCV valve/etc...) and also replace the Bad O2 sensor.

Running it like this can cause long term damage. Let alone you are losing gas milage as well.

Good luck.
