Idling is too slow at 500 rpm.......think about at least 650 rpm to charge the battery and keep up inertia for better take-off power.
Find out how to increase rpm,whether it's a screw-stop adjustment or a timing problem. don-ohio (:^)
You would need to figure out if you are dealing with a fuel problem or an ignition problem to proceed. Have you checked for vac leaks and know for a fact the engine has compression on all 4 cylinders ?
Some causes about rought idle could be: - Valve adjustment - Incorrect ignition timing, - Vacuum leaks - Bad ignition wires (Test w/ ohmmeter) - Incorrect idle speed - Cold Start Injector always "ON" (Revised injector time switch avail.)
A source of rough idle in EFI engines is air leaks or vacum leaks these leaks will upset the fuel mixture without triggering any codes. A bad oxigen sensor will also cause a rough idle, but you should see a code for it ( I think is number 5, but check it).
A good place to start would be an inspection of the spark plugs, plug wires, ignition timing, and idle speed. Next would be valve adjustment. Don't overlook the simple things.
