Check the spark plugs wire , could possibly have a cut, to do so, start the engine and remove one wire from the spark plug wearing a rubber glove, and direct the end of it to a metal part and keep and eye on the sparks are they continuous or random, then put it back,do that to each wire one by one, if u notice a sparking cut in one of them so u might wana change them. "before doing all that make sure they are plugged in correctly and tightly from both side, spark plug side and distributor."

I'm having rough idle and smoke all of a sudden with my golf mk4 The oil warning lights up in dash. Oil level ok. Spark plugs not burning well. Replace spark plugs, changed oil filter, changed

Smoke is not a good sign. Running rough is not a good sign. Oil light not a good sign. You could have a combination of bad things, most likely expensive. Suggest professional help. Smoke can be bad rings or holed piston. Low oil pressure can be bad bearing or oil pump.

High rpms could be caused by an intake leak or vacume leak check your vacume lines maybe in the process of replacing your plugs you might have accidently damaged a vacume line.

My 1993 jeep grand cherokee laredo idles rough after warm up. it also idels high around 2000 rpm at start up sometimes and needs to be shut off and restarted to calm idle speed. whats is causing the...

usually rough Idle is not noticable at high ildle. Once it is idles normally try Disconnecting one injector at a time. If the idle stays the same than that cylinder is the culprit. Remove that spark. If it is wet than do a compression test. Should read better than 100lbs of compression.If compression is good take a spark plug and hook it into the end of the plug wire.Lay it across the intake,start the car and watch for spark. If you have spark than you probably have a bad injector. A miss will cause the vehicle to idle high. The computer is trying to keep the car from dieing out. Hope this helps. No spark do a tune up.

After it runs for a while and gets hot the engine starts cutting up and then the car cuts off. the harmonic balancer, ignition module and spark plugs have been replaced

suggest that you have the idle cotrol sensor checked. when bad the car will not run at idle speed, sometimes even when car not even warm, will have to keep restarting it over @ over. hope this helps!!!

Cars start but 3 secons after the engine die

mcdevito75 here, 3 seconds after the car stars I'll bet the idle goes way high, if so the fast idle swith / motor could be bad. Or if the idle goes way low, it could be the air Idle, sensor/ motor going bad. Either way have your local repair shop run a scan and see.

Idels high and cuts out

The 4.3L V6 is known for idling high when the car has around 100,000 miles more or less. The cutting out could be a fuel filter or fouled/dirty spark plugs but more likely bad spark plug wires. Replacing them all should only run about $80 if you perform the work. Just make sure you get AC Delco spark plugs with a decent set of aftermarket plug wires and do those one at a time so they stay in the same order to avoid misfire/hesitation issues.
