Car makes loud humming/whistling noise from under the rear by fuel tank/pump then car kills.


You describe a failing fuel pump. The fact he had it changed 3 times tells me the quality of the pumps was not great, or there is a problem with venting or something else.
If he did not change the fuel filter the pump would fail quickly. Since you changed the filter the next pump may last a long time.
A quality brand makes a big difference in this component.

96 Ford Taurus, idle is loping a little and feels like it's missing. Changed plugs and wires, PCV, fuel filter, air filter, did a visual inspection for bad vacuum hoses. What method is easiest to...


check the throttle plate if its dirty the air flow through the intake will act like it has a plugged up air filter and the computer will try to keep the car running within the idle range by raising and lowering the idle trying to keep it at the programed spec in the computer.if its dirty clean it with intake cleaner and a tooth brush until its clean on both the front side and back and the area around it when the throttle is closed.if you had a vacume leak you probably would hear a hissing sound and the idle usually will rise and stay high as the computer sees this as the motor needing more fuel because the O2 sensors would show lean.you could have a bad map sensor or maf sensor depending on which system this has.you could also have it put on a scan tool to see what the readings are that the computer is seeing to know what to do next.

It violently shakes when parked or when stopped with brake applied, doesn't shake when moving though, rpms is like 500rpm constant so between 0 and 1 on the gauge. it also notice at night my lights stay...


If it shakes, it is normally either a bad motor mount (if the car runs fine) or your car is "missing" on one or more cylinders (misfire). The belt will squeal because they stretch with use. That can be solved by replacing the belt or tightening the belt. The squealing sound won't go away until you do one of those two things and is unrelated to the shaking. You PROBABLY are experiencing a very "rough idle" if any of the hoses to the intake (top of the motor) have a hole or crack in them from heat or age. This is common and is the first thing to look for to avoid high repair bills. Bad (worn out) spark plugs or old cracked plug wires can also cause a misfire. You could also have a bad coil pack, but mine has gone 186,000 miles without coil replacement or new plugs or wires and I've only changed the fuel filter once. Another possiblity is a faulty Idle Position Sensor that is not properly regulating the fuel delivery. Normally that would cause an engine light to come on also though and you can have someone at the parts store "read the code" once the engine light comes on.

1993 gmc sierra 4wd 5.7L running rough mostly during low rpm, hesitates, then smooths out. Problem is becomming more prevalent, wider rmp range. New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter. Still happening.


timing might be off a little...or your low idle control might not be functioning. try unhooking your idle control module on throttle body, if it doesnt change idle when you disconnect it, its faulty.

Rough idle loss of power in mid to high rpm


Changed fuel filter lately? Fuel pressure tested? When was last tune-up? Check for plugged exhaust too. (catalytic converter)

Rough Idle on 1984 Toyota Celica Supra


You said you replaced the plugs - did you use the toyota platinum plugs? I found out the hard way that even the platinum plugs from bosch or any other kind of platinum plug just doesn't work right. Yes, they are more expensive from toyota, but they can make a difference in the way the engine runs.
