SOURCE: rough idle,overheats .

It could be a bad thermo stat, I just got a 96 camaro and have yet to do too much with it but my prior car a 87 honda had all sorts of overheating issues. It would have a loping and rough idle and overheat a quick fix was a pressure release bolt on the top of the thermostat. I would let it idle and while idling i would loosen the bolt on the thermostat and water would start shooting upward. Basically air was in the system and theis would allow the air mixed in to be released. I would keep a hose/antifreeze handy to top off the radiator as necessary. Im not sure if the camaros have the same thing on them but you may try that out if they do! Good luck!

SOURCE: hard to start and rough idle

Best thing is to get the truck scanned for any DTC, Auto Zone scans for free and can help you pin point the cause of your miss fire. It could be running lean due to dirty injectors, so injector cleaner in the gas tank may help after a few days of running the cleaner through the system. It may just be time for a tune up, spark plugs and wire change ect. Could even be a dirty Air mass flow sensor that could be causing the miss fire. 
Have it scanned to save you some time and money and most garage now will scan for around $15.00 now. Always call around for the best price when getting you car or truck scanned, most places have the scanner and would want you business if you decide to have them work on it.
Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: wont stay running idle surges

Please tell me what you have already done. It could be a vacuum leak, idle control solenoid, fuel, in need of a complete tune-up, or some other issue. You may want to state what you have already done or replaced. How has the maintenance been on it and since its an older vehicle? You may want to preform a compression test.

Check the condition/operation of the PCV valve and associated vacuum/vent connections.
Check for air leaks on the air intake system - throttle body, air cleaner connections etc.
Check for any other vacuum leaks on the motor intake system - such as brake booster hose etc.

Rough idle loss power


I think the hard shifting is due to a faulty transmission control selonoid. As for the code p0102, looks like the mech, only changed what the code refered to , and not your actuall problem. I suspect a loose or broken connector or vacuum hose leak. A simple vacuum leak can throw all sorts of codes. Usually with very troublesome problems that are hard to find, most times a good option is to take it to your gmc/chevy dealer and have their team have a crack at it.

My 94 ford thunderbird will sputter and die when i first start it, and will do it when idling at stoplights, the check engine light will also randomly come on. I've checked the oil and transmissio


check your mass airflow sensor,( located on the air intake line,probably close to where it hooks onto the front of the car on driver side ,should be a square box with wires plugged into it) take intake hose off and spray filiment wire with brake cleaner to clean,do not touch wire with tools or hands it will break very easily ,let dry and replace hose and see if that helps.

94 honda accord vtec Car started to have a rough idle and a **** like feel when it only comes to a stop as in a stopsign or stoplight. When I accelerate pass 10mph the rough idle and jerks goes away....


I don't think it's a fuel problem. Sounds more like spark. Change plugs and wires, and possibly the coil pack. Also could be idle control sensor.

My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.


With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.
