My car runs really rough and sounds loud when it is below 50 degrees outside, even after it warms up. Could it be an O2 sensor?


Could be an ECT engine coolant temp sensor or an O2 that are faulty. If you do not have access to a scan tool, have someone like a parts place scan it and read the ECT and O2's while it is running .

Runs rough; backfire;


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. A severely drained battery.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Engine miss ,running rich ,-rottten egg smell from exhaust ,new plugs and wires,68000 miles 4.3 motor


It sounds like it may be your O2 sensor because if it is not working properly, the engine cannot determine how much fuel to ingest which would cause rough idling.
  • sometimes a bad 02 sensor causes a fuel smell from the exhaust, or you can just remove and check the sensor. if its really black "like charcoal" you might wana get it changed, also checked the wires on it and make sure they're not torn or anything. have scanned to find problem code if check engine light is on. good luck!!

Missing and backfireing, while running


First off, if by backfiring you mean that it is popping out of the exhaust, this is the result of the missing problem. When the enigne misfires, the unburned fuel/air mixture is exhausted into the exhaust pipes. The next time the engine fires on that cylinder, it ignites this unburned mixture causing the loud pop.

It sounds like your problem is ignition related. It the engine was starving for fuel, you probably would not have the backfire through the exhaust. The first thing to do is change the spark plugs. If you try to "test" the spark, you must have a set of plugs in the engine as your engine is equipped with a compression sensor. If there are no plugs in the spark plug holes, no compression, you will not get a spark. If the new plugs don't cure your problem, you probably need to take it to a dealer. The reason is that trouble shooting the electronic ignition is very difficult. Replacing parts until you fix the problem is very expensive. Regrettably, bikes are headed the same direction as cars, no user servicable parts on the machine. That's why I still ride a Shovelhead with points, a coil, and a carburetor. The EPA hates me too.

2002 buell blast is running rough - missing - backfiring


hard to say w/ seeing it; it does sound as if they replaced everything w/o really finding the problem first; try better fuel and clean petcock; when dies is it electrical( all lights out) or does it sputter and choke off? sorry; I know it can be frustrating check all wiring under seat looking for loose or broken connectors or ground wires

I want to have flames and backfire with my exhaust pipe..


Hello,
Blimey you really are on the Ball with this request. Do you realise that continuous and repeated deliberate miss firing can and will possibly damage your engine and blow the exhaust system apart?
Why go to all that trouble? When I used to do it I just shut the kill switch off whilst de-cellerating open the throttle a little the turn it back on (Bang/Flames) doesn't do it every time but with practice you can get it most times and the longer you shut off the louder the bang.
This was for OFF ROAD trials only!!!
I DO NOT ACCEPT ANY RESPONSIBLITY FOR THIS REQUEST AT YOUR OWN RISK YOU DO IT!
The reason I have given you the tip above is because it looks a seriously dangerous area you are going into with spark plugs and seperate batteries.
I personally would leave well alone.

Backfiring, rough idel


I would check the exhaust pipe a little closewr. White smoke can also mean a blown head gasket. Check the tail pipe to see if moisture is present. Also check coolant level. A blown head gasket can also cause related problems.
