As long as light is on, go to auto-zone etc they will scan for free. no sense in guessing, the OBD-2 scanner will give you a po code, so you know what area to start and fix it.

2.4l has gas in oil and no power


check the fuel pressure regulator and the map sensor vacuum hoses. as for the not revving above 4000 rpm is what the computer limits the engine to with no load on it, like in park or neutral.

Sunfire runs rough at idle then seems to flood out to where it cant stay at a steady rpm when u adjust the gas pedal. will stall after idling for long time. fuel press reg seems fine. unhooked battery


the hole in the filler neck won`t cause this problem.do you have a check engine light on.this could set the light on as it can affect the evap/tank pressure sensors vacume.check for codes in the pcm(computer).rough running can be caused by bad plugs/wires compression,injector problems.timing sensors,anything to do with fuel or ignition.check for codes then check the other items.

How does the engine run otherwise? Any stumbling on acceleration? Any check engine lights on?

When the engine is racing, does it stay at a steady RPM or does it flucuate up and down the RPM range?

2001 sunfire will bog after giving it gas and stay around 2000 and 3000 rpm no higher in park, and its making a funny noise like its not getting enough gas and sucking in to much air, when its in drive it...


Have your fuel pressure and volumn checked, nd if ok, have the exhaust checked for restriction(usually clogged converter) If converter is bad, have engine performance anylized,as there is a reason it clogged. Don't overlook coolant getting in the combustion chambers.

My 1996 dodge stratus idles rough, shaking the steering wheel. Also just recently driving my normal comute to college and back which is 40 miles round trip, in turn is now consuming 4 gallons of gasoline....


Seems like we need a tune up . Change the plugs wires, air filter fuel filter. Is the check engine light on. If so have the codes pulled on the car.

Engine rmps will not back down


If this happened all of a sudden, It sounds like a Vacuum leak. I would inspect the vacuum hoses for brakes or cracks. Is the Rpm too high to test drive and see how the vehicle is running?
