2007 kia Rio Engine shuts off intermittently. History: 1 year ago we had an issue with rough engine and power issues (Approx 150k). replaced spark plugs and same issue. Engine light codes reported misfire on cylinder 3&4. replaced both coil packs for those cylinders and no problems since. Then out of the blue a couple of months ago the engine would just shut off randomly, no bogging or rough idle, just the engine would stop running. this would happen usually when slowing to a stop, making a slow

My Mazda is a 1995 626 Lx 2.0 engine. The engine idles rough when in park and at a stop sign. Give it gas and it accelerates chuging and coughing (lags and hesatates) Then during acceleration it stops chuging and coughing and runs smoothly for awhile and then runs rough again. I ran the codes and the key on engine off codes all indicate the that engine is running just fine (all read 111)! All codes including the stored codes that would indicate an intermittant problem read 111. I ran the k

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee / Approx. 133,000 miles - Owned since new and very well kept. Only at idle, engine stops working but would start again after 20 min wait, would work fine for a few days and do it again. Brought to shop, all tests run, computer has no engine problem history. After a couple of weeks of that, the problem became so bad that had to leave it at the shop and leave it there. Took them 1.5 days of idling to finally do it in front of them. Showing both spark and fuel pressure.


I would try your pickup coil in your distributor. I would also be checking the o2 sensors. both of these things can cause problems like this and would not set off the check engine light. ... 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Give the motor a tune-up. new plugs and wires. also the idle control valve needs testing unless that is the part you changed already. The car won't strop easily with the engine shut down because the brakes are no longer powered. ... 1992 Mercedes-Benz 190

Engine problem When in idle with the a/c on engine runs good but when the a/c is turned off the rpms go down low and then the engine shuts off. I also was looking under the hood with the key on but engine off and there was something clicking inside the engine it would do it for a min or so and then stop. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have. Btw the car has 63,000 miles on it

My 2001 Escort, 70k runs great but a definate vibration at the steering wheel. I notice it more when cold andwhen it warms up it is not as bad but still noticable vibration at the steering wheel. Sometimes at a stop light it will idle rough and the sometimes it idles smoother. I had a 99 and had the same problem. Was told by a Ford mechanic that all escorts idle rough. Who would buy this car new with a rough idle when they test drove it?


That mechanic wasn't lying. I currently own three of them and I know a lot of people that own them and they all have a rough idle. The engines are internally balanced and they don't have dampeners, so you get the engine vibration transferred to the ... 2001 Ford Escort ZX2

My car is a manual 2006 Scion Tc, and when I was driving on the freeway one day, the engine stalled and I wasn't getting any response when I stepped on the gas. I stopped, waited for a few minutes, started the car fine and was able to drive back home. I thought the loss of power was just a hickup but the problem persisted the next morning; the car would start, idle, but wouldn't rev up when I step on the gas. At few times, the car would start and run fine but would have the same problem after ab

On my 89 Park Ave the gas filter has been replaced because it needed to but that did not solve the problem. The car runs good when its cold but around 4 or 5 miles the engine is sputtering and cuts off when I come to a stop unless I ride the brake or put it in neutral and sometimes it will cut of at 30 mph if I let up off the gas. It starts up ---no problem. I know that the wire to the coil has some carbon on it but would that cause it to run erratically. The car has 75,000 miles. My mechanic j

My 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera is idling really high on startup and then we'll go really low and then sometimes die. It dies a lot at stop lights and the idle is really rough. It hasn't done it on a couples days.

I also noticed a couple days ago that when the car is in accessory mode the fan is not running. The fan is also not ru

I sometimes get a message saying oil pressure is low stop engine if it was the oil pump it would stay on or am i wrong this only happens sometimes when the car is idling I also have the traction control,anti lock brake and engine light on can these be reset or what should i do. the car runs great just these light's are on


If the oil pump was bad, it would most likely stay on, but if you have a plugged oil pick up tube, then it would be intermittent. Just have to pull the pan, pull off the pickup tube, clean it out real good and put it back on and you will be good. ... 1998 Cadillac DeVille

Car started and idle, when I would press on gas pedel the engine would stall. Let up on gas and engine would idle, but it sounded like it was running on 3 or 4 cylinders.

So I left the car for about hour, tried to start it and it started right up. It had a rough idle pressed on the gas the engine stalled I let up

1986 Nova: engine stops while standing and at low RPM. OK before I got rear ended. Next start up: would not idle without revving. Next startup: OK but died while driving home; kick started without any problem but needed continued revving. Mechanic advised bad solenoid connection and charged $104.00.. Although carburator performance much better than ever, still dies at intersections without revving. 20 degree morning start ups OK and 10 minute standing warm up idle OK.
