Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?


\015 1984 Porsche 911. Runs rough above 2000 RPM. I replaced spark plugs, ignition cable set, distributor cap, rotor, fuel and air filters, but problem continues. Do you believe the cause could be air/fuel or ignition system? Thanks, Jorge\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

I was running it for the 1st time after this winter it was idling fine at high idle 1,200 rpm and i bumped the throttle and it ran really rough and will barely run at all, I just don't know what went wrong,I replaced the plugs and it still won't run. What happened?

Sounds like it might have varnished gas in the system. I would change the fuel filter, clean out the lines with a good carb/fuel injector cleaner and fill the tank with fresh gas. I will run a little rough until the bad gas is run out. If this dont ... Chevrolet Corvette

1995 ford f 250 with 5.8 runs rough,idles high,temp comes up really high while idling. and on a power balance test #1 cyl shows no drop in rpm. {plug was wet}.

I have a 1992 Mitsubishi Mighty Max v6 3.0. It runs rough at high speed (not necessarily rpm) and the check engine light was on earlier this week, but is now off. Does the computer retain check engine codes? If so, how can I retrieve them? Any ideas why the engine would run and accelerate fine through about 45 mph and then start to run rough above that, seemingly regardless of rpm?

Yes, the computer does retain fault codes. They can be retrived either with a scan tool or by using an analog volt meter. (Good luck finding one of those if you don't already own one.)\012Volt meter method:\012Find the diagnostic conne ... 1993 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

My engine runs like the timing is off when I rev it or push down on the gas pedal. 3.5L V6. The engine runs smooth when the rpm's are low, in town driving. When rpm's go high, like climbing a hill, the Pacifica engine starts to run "rough", like the timing is off. I think its the timing system, spark plugs, or bad combustion (poor gas). We have used 89 octane gas every tank since we bought it 2.5 years ago. The engine light comes on and stays on, (it doesn't blink). A tech at the local Aamco sta

1993 Toyota Camry V6 starts fine, I let it warm up, I think it's ideling high but I drive off. At the second stop light the car dies.

I put the car in neutral and it starts ups and then it makes it thru the next two stop lights before I get on thre freeway. The RPM's still seem to run high on the way to work. I'm driving 65-70 mph and the RPM's are at the 3 versus at about 2.5. Ju
