    The #3 kept comeing up for the check engine light so we switched it out a couple of times. But it kept on driving ruff and light would come back on. He changed coils around I dont know why.



1 Answer

Just because you get a PO301 thru PO308 does not
always mean that coil is bad

Why would you change coils around?
Now you most likely haven't keep track
of what might have been a bad one

You need to either walk a new coil or have
an oscilloscope put on the coils to find the
bad one.

The shift stratagy could be off due to a
bad TPS Sensor or other issue

You need a repair shop

2007 Toyota Rav4: RPM fluctuates at around 2000 RPMs and engine seems to stutter or hesitate. Fairly consistent around 2000 RPMs. Does not happen when revved in park to 2000 or 2500 RPMs.

You need to check the engine for a vacuum leak, use a spray can of carb spray and lightly spray around engine (do not get on paint finish) when you hit a leak the engine idle will change

Your catylatic converter may be clogged if your loosing power or top speed is less than it was. You can check this when its running with a battery operated infared heat gauge. the temperature of the muffler should be around the same temp. as the catylatic converter.

1994 mercury cougar turns over but does not start

Need MUCH more information in order to help.

Is the engine getting spark? Is their fuel pressure at the rails ?
Is their oil in it ? Battery connected properly ? Miles on the engine?
Engine size ? Has any one ever replaced the neutral safety switch ?

Car hesitation

sounds like the coil pack is failing or you could just have water in your fuel.... buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze (it sucks up water) and add them to your tank when you fill up.... if that doesn't fix it it is likely the coil pack
