With all of the low voltage problems going on here I would check the body computer. That is the only thing I can think of that would cause all of this. Some others may have suggestions on this.

2000 Ford Escort zx2 runs rough and stalls in reverse


The Ford Escort ZX2, the 2.0 liter is a interference engine,The valve and the piston kissed each other as they met with a broken timing belt,Just to let you know a cam position sensor does not create rough idle, it can stall the engine at a stop sign,but the solution is a valve job, and who ever put the timing belt on after the job should have done a cylinder effeciency test.

1997 chevy blazer gets a po300 code and runs rough with no power. any suggestions?


p0300 is an engine misfire detected p0301 would be misfire detected on #1 cylinder and so no throught p0306SOo seeing its not related to any one cylinder i would check the crank shaft position sensor first because that and the cam shaft sensor is what detects all misfires Itcould also be caused by any of these sensors TP MAP IC VS ECT throttle position -manifold absuliute press -idle control -vehicle speed -engine coolant tempature By the way are you getting any codes or is your mil light on if so you should read the codes thatcould tell more then any one on line good luck

it sure sounds like you have an EGR problem. This valve controls the flow of unburned exhaust gases and re-routes them too the intake to be re-burned. This valve is usually open at highway or cruise speeds. Not usually open at idle. If this EGR valve is open at idle, you get a rough running for sure just like a mis fire and will smooth out as your speed increases. I would get that checked out and if faulty, replace. Please keep in mind that this part is quite expensive new, but it is electrically controlled. good luck!

Rough Idle/Runs Rough and low power


I would take it in and have them do a diagnostic on it, sounds like the cam shaft sensor to me.

Cam shaft sensor & air conditioner


I replaced the Cam Shaft Sensor. I also cleaned the Throttle Body with carb cleaner. I had my wife hold down the accelerator, while running I sprayed down the throttle plate and the entire area around it. Now my TB finally idles smoothly, and it hasn't died yet!! Check engine light is gone and I passed the emissions test!! Yea!!!
