My question is this I have a 1983 toyota pickup truck with the 22R engine.About a week ago I pulled out ot my drive way and when the motor warm up it started to run rough and black soot was coming from my exhaust.So I checked my air filter and gas filter and they where all right.So I decided to rebuilt the carb,and when I started the engine and it ran okay until it warmed up and started to run rough and black soot started coming from the exhaust.So rebuilting the carb did not make any difference

2006 Freestar cut out once going down the high way. 45 miles later we stopped for a rest. When we started back up, it took several times before it stayed running, but ran very rough, and would stall if allowed to stay at idle very long. When we got back on the road, it seemed like it was going ok (no indicator lights, engine, fuel, battery... were lit) after about 5 miles we came to a traffic light, and it stalled and would not restart. It will crank over, there is fuel at the injector ba

Today I was driveing it & it started running real roughe and then it died. After setting for aboute 5 minutes it started and ran fine the rest of the way home.


It seems you are having a problem with firing into combustion chamber and as a result, this causes the engine to start out of the blue.It is to do with coil, wiring to coil or or the unit that is connected before the coil..It is hard to troubleshoot ... 2000 GMC Safari

My 2002 Chevy Blazer starts, then RPMs drop and it stalls. I take the key out, then insert it again, start it again and it runs fine. It does this intermittently - 3 times this week. Today, it did it, but it wouldn't stay running after I took the key out. The only way I could get it to stay running was to keep my foot on the accelerator. After driving for about 10 miles home, and puttin git in park, it stayed running. There is no check engine light, and when I had it at the mechanic earlier this

2006 S type 2.7D has developed an intermittent rough idle which coincides with smoke from between the engine and bulkhead which gets drawn in to the air. Bought the car from Stratstone Manchester 8 months ago and it overheated on the way home. After several attempts to fix it they replaced the fan unit. Problems then started with the heater & air con it took several visits before it was sorted and that's when the intermittent engine started running rough. The DPF also played up with a message

My 96 GC 5.2L V8 started acting up a few weeks ago by taking several turns of the key to start. Now the only way it will start is if I add starter fluid to the throttle body and once it starts it runs fine. I replaced the inline fuel filter and checked the injectors with a stethescope wile running and all were clicking fine. HELP!!


This sounds like a weak fuel pump, put a preasure gauge on the fuel rail and check the preasure with the engine off turn on the key and preasure should be 47psi to 51 psi.lower than 47 replace the pump, a few pounds make a big diffrence when trying t ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2006 F250, 6.0 diesel (power stroke) it was running fine and then suddenly started running real rough (similar to the way a gasoline engine runs when it's not firing on all cylinders.) also there was a significant loss of power and the boost gauge was showing almost no boost. Idle is rough but it will stay running, barely! Where should I look?


This is very complex system. Best to have it checked by qualified diesel mechanic who has the proper equipment to check out all the systems, that could be related to the problem you are having. Just to start throwing parts at it can become very expe ... 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

On my daughter's 1993 Dodge Intrepid (3.5L, automatic trans, 147,000 miles), she (college student) tells me about every other day when starting it, all the dash lights (check engine, oil, brakes, etc.) come on and stay on, and the engine runs rough. She shuts it off, restarts it, and it runs fine. She brought it to me several days ago, and it ran fine with no problems. I checked for computer codes, and all I got was a code 12 (battery disconnected within the last 50 starts --- I cleaned battery

1993 Ford Tempo GL 2.3 Liter. Car will not start unless you give it gas, then it will run rough for about 20 seconds. Then idle will smooth out. Seems odd to have to start a fuel injected car this way. This problem started about a week ago. No drastic weather change to cause this problem.

I have a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire with a 2.2L motor. It runs great considering how old it is. Last week I started it up and several of my dash lights stayed on. They are: The oil light, the battery light, the coolant light,the Theft System light and the light that comes on when my running lights are on. Also, my RPM gauge stopped working, as did my temperature gauge. The lights are still on and the gauges still don't work, but it is running still.


Usually a ground that goes to the battery pan... usually the battery pan is rusted beyond repair. Easy repair is removing the ground, then going from the ground part of the battery to a bolt on the fender. That usually clears this up. ... 1999 Pontiac Sunfire
