I have a 1998 Isuzu Wizard. Occassionaly engine idles rough and sometimes it idles so rough it stalls. This can happen from 3 seconds to 3-4 minutes. It also sometimes revs up in netural when idling. Idling revs are about 900 reves but rev counter will go up to 1300 revs and then return to normal idle speed. Twice now when motor has idled rough I've had no accelerator. Can put auto into drive and depress accelerator and will only take off at idle speed. Warning light has come on twice now it dis

Rough idle I have a 1996 pickup 125,000 miles on it. It has had a rough idle for years, sometimes it will rough idle till it goes dead. I took the air filter off and at the back of the motor there was two vaccums with rubber vaccum line, they were falling apart and had stopped up the holes. I took them out and cleaned them out. After I got them back in and it still has a rough idle. Do you have any more recommendations. Thanks

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

I have a 4 liter V6 2003 Ford Explorer ( 2 door). The check engine came on and then it started idling rough. When it idles rough the AC blows hot. Recently it has started stalling when idling at a traffic light or in stop and go traffic. The problem has been consistent until tonight when I had no problems but check engine light still on (rough idle has only been during the heat of the day so far). Read the codes for the engine light and they were as follows System too lean bank 1 system too

Rough idle I had my 98 stratus engine replaced a few months ago and this one has a rough idle my friend thought it was the fuel injectors I didn't think so but tried the seafoam anyway it didn't help. It only idles rough when I am stopped and there is no change in the idle if I am using my a/c, heater or anything else. Do you know what the problem could be?

Hello, The GMC 89 TBI 305 in my truck eats up fuel badly in very cold starts. It will start then idle down to almost a stall then idles slowly back up, but remains rough until I step up the RPM's until the rough running goes away usually in 5 seconds or so. Then the idle will stay properly and idle down slowly in usually 5 minutes. Why do I have this rough start? The motor has a new fuel filter, plugs, wires, distributer cap, rotor, timing set and the garage bumped up the 5.7 amps to 6.0 amps t

Stumbling Idle vehicle sat outdoors for 4 days in 15-20 degree weather. Started fine but at first stop idle became very rough. No OBD II codes set, and rough idle stopped after light changed and accellerated. Did not recur until two days later after car sat for full day in 30 degree garage. Upon start rough idle, then gave accelleration and it was gone. Still no OBD II codes. Water in gas? Bad fuel? Deposits? Car is in excellent shape and has 105000 miles and has always been serviced by factory

I Have A 2004 Ford Taurus SE With 3.0 OHV V6. When You First Start It Up When The Engine Is Cool It Will Go To A Very High Idle And When It Starts Warming Up It Idles Down Some Then It Will Come To A Rough Idle And Will Quit At Times. Stopping At A Red Light It Will Idle Rough. But Strangely Enough When Engine Is Warm, You Can Shut It Off For A Couple Of Minutes And Restart It And It Will Come To A High Idle Again For A Brief Moment Then Idles Back Down. While It Is Warm And The Car Is In Park,

94 honda accord vtec Car started to have a rough idle and a **** like feel when it only comes to a stop as in a stopsign or stoplight. When I accelerate pass 10mph the rough idle and jerks goes away.

I recently replaced my ignition module on my truck. It fixed the problem of it not starting but I am now having an issue with it idling rough. After starting it will idle very rough until I take and adjsut the distributor cap by rotating it by hand. It will run great for a short time and if you watch it under idle the cap will slowly rotate back to where it runs rough. Did I forget to tighten a screw somewhere that holds it in place?
