2002 Chevy Trailblazer running rough when idling, especially when its cold. The engine sounds like it is missing. Thought it was because I got some bad gas but still having the problem.I have replaced the fuel filter and ignition coil #2,4,and 6. When i replace the fuel filter i notice the gas that came out of it was very dirty. I have also used the fuel injector cleaner a few times when I filled up with gas.What else could be making my engine run rough?

I have a BMW 323I 1999 sedan, and I just got 1188 and 1189 codes faults like 2 weeks ago. Today things went worst and while I was parked giving a phone call ad car runnig idle the engine started to run rough as if missfiring. After a second codes check miss firing 4,5,6. Mechanic told me it could be the cathalitic but I don't think this could come up from a day to another I should have had some signs before? I changed all ignition coils 10 month ago, air filter as well. Though since I have this

I think that you have an air leak. The fact that you hear it when you press the accelerator rather than when you release the accelerator suggests that it is outside of the throttle valve. Check the rubber boot/elbow that fits on the throttle valve. ... BMW 323

Engine mis-firing I have a 1998 Ford Mustang. The check engine light is on and I know I should first have the codes pulled but here is what it's doing.

I have changed the plugs, plug wires about 4 months ago and I changed the coil pack about a month ago. The car has over 100k but had one owner before me and it was garage kept. Ver

How can engine light codes be found directly? My 1998 Buick LeSabre has presented the engine light, but there are no other indications of a problem. There's plenty of oil, and coolant. Likely it seems the problem may be a MAP gas sensor, but a friend has said that on older vehicles it was possible by some scheme to get the code by using some entries like stepping on the brake with the key in the run position, but the engine not running; then doing something else, and so on, with the engine light
