Idle marks 1200rpm but sounds to low


Could be the tach isn't accurate at low rpm, that isn't unusual. Try connecting an external tach for testing.

Starts but runs ruff then dies


Hi Glean, Sounds as if you have a problem with the fuel pump or possibly the air flow sensor. Take the vehicle for a scan and if no fault codes show up suspect the pump. Regards John

My 2000 Jimmy won't start, I can hear the fuel pump running and then shutting off before I attempt to start the engine. I also hear it running while I attemp to start the engine. The engine won't start...


The pump is working normally the reason it stops before you start the engine is it has built up enough preasure and cuts out. When you turn over the engine it starts up again as the preasure goes down when the carburator open's. The pump only helps the fuel from the tank. It seem's like dirt in your carburator. The reason it wont start after 3 minutes is the excess petrol in the carburator has evaporated hence need to pour more in. Check all pipes filters and carburator for dirt.

1998 bmw 528I runs ruff after starting,smooths out after 30 sec.


If you let it warm up first it should not run ruff .Its the car staying in low gear to warm up the catalytic converter faster so that it can cut the amount of pollution that the is car producing .For the clean-air laws.
