2000 Ford Taurus SEL 4 door sedan 3.0 12 valve Looking for some help best place to start with following problems First problem engine runs real rough when engine cold at an idle and the exhaust smells like raw fuel when I bring rpms up it sputters and kicks than smooths out high rpms Second my heater blowing cold air even when engine warm also my radiator cooling fans do not turn on(fuse OK) and in traffic or with AC on engine starts to over heat

Very rough idle. Engine lopes badly. No codes show when key turned 3 times on / off (left on @ 3rd time). Only thing that shows in odometer area (where codes would display) is the word "done". When engine is revved it smooth out some. Could it be the camshaft sensor? Get a slight odor of raw fuel also when running. I check all the vacuum lines and they appear to be okay.


I doupt it's the cam sensor. they don't work that way. I would check the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve and the IAC ( idle air control) motor. Both of these will cause a large vacuum leak and make your lope. you can try uplugging them , then p ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 1997 1.6l 1600 Ford Escort. The engine was reconditioned 1000 km's ago. A few days ago it just would not cold start. The engine would kick over once and stall. It takes up to 3 hours to start the engine and once running it runs very uneven for about 2 minutes then the engine runs normal and very smooth. Throttle body sensor has been checked, fuel pump an filter checked. Sufficient fuel pressure at bleed valve, and injector seals has been checked - where could the problem be.

My 1991 park avenue starts and seems to run fine for maybe twenty miles, and then will begin to starve for fuel, as it begins to diesel very bad, and only run smooth at very light acceleration. if i pull over and turn engine off for 5 or 10 min. it will run fine again for a while and then do the same thing. i have changed the fuel filter but it didn't help. am thinking it could be a bad fuel pump relay.hopefully not the fuel pump. what do you think?


Hi, it could well be the pump but give this a try, next time you use the car leave the fuel filler cap off just for this test then see if the car cuts out or not, im saying this because the problem could be an airlock in the tank, if the breather has ... 1991 Buick Park Avenue

Engine will choke itself out if accelerator is quickly pushed 1/2 way and remains there. If accelerator is 'slowly' pushed to the 1/2 way point there is no problem and the engine runs smoothly. Nutshell: quick demand for fuel chokes out engine. 1. getting fuel (and changed fuel filter) 2. spark test OK on all 4 distributor ohm test VERY high, but the symptom do not seem to fit a bad distributor - or does it?

I have a 2003 Ford Taurus SEL, the check engine light is on and when I had them run the codes they said it was running "lean" on both banks. What could cause this? Some have said it could be the O2 sensor or a fuel pump. The car only has 49,000 miles on it and runs fine. Gas mileage is down a little but overall it runs smooth. I cant get an inspection sticker until the check engine light is taken care of. Any help would be very appreciated.

Have changed throttle body, fuel filter, plugs, wires, cap, rotor button, pcv valve. Also have checked ohms on both coils, checked fuel pressure and is steady at 36 lbs when running and idle. If you spray fuel into throttle body while cutting out, it smooths out. HELP!

I recently bought a 1993 Lexus SC 400 a month ago. The car ran fine. Then it started running rough. At start up it still runs fine. Once it reaches operating temperature the engine idle fluctuates and when put into park or neutral the rpm jumps up. At the same time black exhaust come out and smells like raw fuel. When you step on the gas pedal the engine bogs down and wants to stall. At this point, if you put it in gear the car stalls. After the car sits for a while, it starts up and runs fine u

1992 Honda prelude intermitent starting problem. Fuel injected 5 speed, new fuel filter and spark plugs. Battery, starter, and alternator checks out ok. Runs smooth and powerful.

I have a 98 Hyundai Excel, the engine seems to run fine and smooth but it puffes smoke like a chimney, and deposits a liquid i am not sure what it is and i also treated the fuel. the colour of the smoke ranges from blueish to black colour. do i need to overhaul the engine or can i rectify otherwise. I have serviced the engine and replaced the spark plugs. but it still smokes and i also treated the fuel. please help me thanks in advance.
