Question about 1993 Dodge Shadow
Hi, i have a 93 shadow with mood swings. sometimes it drives like a brand new car and other times it idles uneven and rough. it has stalled when revving in park and will buck like it is choking out when giving it gas (though not all the time and usually at lower steady speeds). ive replaced the plugs and wires, and fuel pump and filter, pcv valve, and air filter, and flushed the fuel tank. the problem is very inconsistent. any ideas? i was thinking of doing the cap and rotor, and maybe the egr next, any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
Like 'nstripes' 9/08 post, my 1990 Shadow has the same problem (mood swings pretty much describes it. It has gotten increasingly to be a more consistent problem though since in addition to changing all the things that 'nstripes' said they changed, I've changed the coil, spark plugs, asked the Dodge dealer to diagnose it and they thought it was an EGR but mine's a 2.5 turbo and don't see an EGR on it and Chilton's says there is no EGR on a turbo. Anyway, I will check into the pickup coil next. I had an 88 Dakota that had that problem once although it behaved more like the post here described, not like Nstripes' post describes... identical problem I guess.
