I assume the light your talking about is the check engine light. Stop at an Auto Zone or Advance Auto parts store and ask them to read the fault codes.

2003 Ford Explorer XLT Wants To Stall At Low Idle,, especially when at a stop light


How does it idle in park , does it run ruff or smooth? Are any lights lit on the dash , check engine etc. ? Could have a partially plugged IAC air passage .idle air control (IAC) valve ! The engine computer uses the IAC to control idle , when under a load such as when put into gear the computer raises the idle ! It does this by allowing more air to by pass the closed throttle into the engine raising the idle ! If these air passages clog they restrict the air flow an cause a idle problem ! Now if it runs ruff at idle in park you could have vacuum leak ! Rough Idle How to Fix Ford Taurus Engine Stalls at Stop Signs

F-150 engine ligt comes on and blinks ruff idle at low rpms and shuder while driving


MIL light flashing means vehicle running too lean, not enough gas to the cylinders or timing out. Check if the spark plugs are correctly pluged in (firing order)

My car just started running ruff my wife left the gas cap off and its snowing outside the check engine light just started flashing and its idleing almost on 0 rpms


a flashing light means you are getting unburned fuel ito the exhaust. It will cook your converter.
Can you get the codes read free at autozone?

can you disconnect the battery for an hour and reconnect and see what happens.

2004 ford escape, check engine light was blinking and after a driving cycle the light is solid. The idle is noticably rougher.


My ford escape is a 6 and runs ruff idling and the check engine light is flashing. This just came on after not driving the truck for a day and the day that i drove it, it was raining all day. Any thoughts here?

Ruff idle on my 2001 for taurus. At higher rpms it runs fine.


It is most likely you wheel alignment (costs about 20 bucks to have your wheels aligned) or try checking the tire Pressure to make sure they're all even maybe hope this helps

Car runs very ruff at idle.Check engine light was flshing


You need to have it check immediately if the CEL was Flashing.This means that your engine is experiencing a serious missfire and damage to the catalytic convertors can occur if you continue to drive it. If it was on steady then it means PCM has detected a concern and you should have it check but will not cause damage.
