7.5 l engine. Starts well but idles a bit roughly. Check engine light illuminates intermittently but does not stay lit constantly. Thanks!


If you have a check engine light the best thing is to read the codes and find out what the problem is. Many shops like Aamco read codes free.

Rough idle at higher rpm smooth


You have a vacume leak somewhere. You can try to listen for it or you can get a can of brake parts cleaner and spray it around the engine. Anywhere there is hoses or connections of any kind. When you find the leak the engine RPM's will increase. If thats not the problem it could be your EGR valve is clogged or your map sensor could be bad. Those things would usually cause a check engine light. Vacume leaks wont. Good luck

Truck idles rough but at higher RPM runs fine. Checked codes and it is randomly misfiring on all cylinders. Also every now and then when changing gears revs up on its own and even at a stop engine revs up,...


Sounds like either the EGR valve is leaking ( if it is it will be very hot), or you have a serious vacuum leak, take a can of carb spray, and spray around the intake manifold and see if the idle smooths out if it does you will need to repair the vacuum leak, it could be a vacuum hose or the intake itself leaking.
