My 2005 Ram 1500 4.7 started running bad the other day after the engine light came on a few hours earlier. I have replaced the cam sensor and the throttle position sensor. It ran 200+ miles fine and then started again this afternoon. It dies or runs rough. It idles fine and at low RPM's seems ok. Picking up the idle a little while in park, it runs fine until around 1700 RPM's + and then the engine constantly bounces around as if I were giving it the gas and letting off back and forth. Then at id

1998 Contour, When it is cold it runs fine. But when it warms up it idles very rough at low RPM. It dies sometimes when at a stop light or even going around corners. When it is acting up like this it smells very bad. I can park the car and wait an hour or so and it will run fine until it warms back up. I have also noticed my temp guage is not working now. I do not believe it is overheating as my fans are running correctly. Replaced the plugs, wires, timing belt, tensioner, pulleys, water pump.

I got to work and did my thing and headed home, which is only about a mile down the road. When I pulled into my parking spot and turned th

I have a1999 Subaru outback wagon, it was running fin last night, but this morning when we turned it on it started flashing the check engine light, then the light remained lit. The car sounds fine, but is idling about 1500 rpm with occasional jumps up to 2000 rpm; it normally rests about 700 rpm. When I run it, it feels fine with maybe just the slightest hesitation when accelerating. The engine light also went back to flashing. I tightened the fuel cap and in the process of cleaning the air filt

Subaru Legacy 1995, will not start. Battery is fine, replaced battery connections; fuel filter, spark plugs and wires about 1 year old. Engine turns over and over, and over, just can't get it to ''fire,'' if you will. Problem began with randomly not starting (no previous symptoms), then started about 12 hours later and ran fine, then couple weeks went by and it randomly didn't start, but then about 4 hours later it started and ran just fine. Then recently it decided to not start at all.
