I own a 1998 Ford F150 V8, 4.6L engine with approx. 273,000 miles. My truck has a high idle problem. Whenever I am driving for awhile and come to a stop, the engine idles well pass 1500 RPMs. In fact, the idle is so high, it requires me to keep my foot on the brakes to prevent running into the car in front of me. Once it starts idling high, it continues until I turn the truck off. Can you advise on what is causing the truck to idle at very high RPMs after being driven?

My 1986 Dodge Ramcharger is having issues while in idle. While just waiting at a stop light or just having the car in idle period, the truck will begin to shake intensly and after 5-30 seconds will die suddenly. I can start it up right after, but this is a pain having to constantly start my car back up at a red light. I think its the carburator, but i dont know how to check and fix it. Please help.

When my engine warms up the car shakes, sometimes quite violently, especially when lights are on, radio and i'm indicating etc, but only when idling. everything okay when driving. however today after work, when i turned the engine on, it immediately started to vibrate and the odometer and handbrake light started to fade in and out with the vibrating. Also the battery light would come on and off through out the journey. it all stopped when i had the car over 1500rpm, starting again when i slowed

I have a 1996 Chevy Cavalier that shakes then shuts down every so often, it seems to happen most when the car is idleing or stuck in stop and go traffic, when this happens, I shut the car off and leave it sit for a couple of hours, but then I can't start it back up, it turns over but won't fire. After leaving it sit for a while, sometimes overnight, it will start back up. Also the battery just died because a light got left on, and when I got it jumped and started again, only one speaker was work

Overcharging Alternator I have a 1999 Cadillac STS with an alternator I replaced. The alternator is a 140 amp and after being replaced, started the car right up. But now instead of my car NOT charging the battery, its charged all the way up to as high as 16.4 volts when idling. If I turn all the accessories on it still hovers around high 15v and low 16v causing my stovk stereo to clip and windows not to work. If the engine is off with the key in the ignigtion, the car will read at 12v. (keep in

I have a 1999 Toyota Altezza. Recently my car had started to shake constantly, when the car is started and in idle it shakes and when accelerating it shakes and it is not as powerful as it should be. It's a 6 cylinder and when it's in idle you can hear is missing from the exhaust. I've had the fuel pump replaced 4 weeks ago. It was fine for 2 weeks and the shaking started again. Any ideas what could cause this shaking and how can I fix the problem?

Sometimes when I try to start the truck, it won't turn over the first time, then the second time it will start fine, can't idle for too long; engine will shut off on it's own. When driving about 10 to 15 miles, it will shutter like it want's to shut off and I step on the gas to get it going. Driving and the gas petal will push back at me and the car feels like it want's to shut off again, but I gently put gas to it and it goes.


Sounds like you have a fuel pump failing or a clogged fuel line from a dirty filter. I would bring it to a garage and have the fuel system pressure checked. This will asnwer questions about weather or not this is the problem. ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

I just had a tune up and also had the battery replaced, but I noticed now that when I start my car up and turn on the heat or the a/c that the car shakes a little and acts like its gonna stall? Could this be the idle needs to be adjusted or could it mean that the fuel injectors may need cleaning?

1997 BMW 740i: When I first start it up it will run fine until I depress half or more throtle then the CEL light would blink. After that it runs with no power and struggles to even maintain 35 mph speed. Wouldn't accelerate easily past 3000rpm. When I come to a stop light I would feel the engine missing on multiple cylenders and whole car shakes.

I have a 2002 trailblazer ltz, I go to start the truck and it just clicks under the hood, no noise or anything. The lights on the console comes on and the radio says that's it's on but it only plays static. Also everything seems to be reset in the car like the car was saying "Driver 1" even though I had the driver 2 key and remote and also the time on the radio was reset to 12:00. Also as I'm turning the key the radio screen says "Need AMP". what do you think this could be?

We own a 1996 Dodge Stratus and the check engine light is coming on. After changing all the spark plugs the light went out. The next day the light comes back on. While driving on the freeway the speedometer went down to 0 and when I gave the gas peddle gas the engine ribbed up while it was slowing down. (as if it was in neutral). Pulled over turned engine off. Waited about 1 hr turned the ignition key and it started up and the light was back on again. When in idle it shakes and there is t


The only way to tell why the check engine light is on is to have the engine codes read with a scanner. This will pinpoint exact problem location. It will also have to be shut off and reset with this scanner. Many part stores will do it for free. ... Dodge Stratus

The truck has been idling between 500 & 800 RPM for a while. It drives fine but at times the will drop to 0 then shut off. It will do this sometimes after coming to a stop or turning a corner. The truck will start up right away but has been doing this for the last 4-5 months. I was told it may have been that I was using only regular gas but have been using the Mid Grade for the last month. I was almost in a accident last week and would like to find a reason for this if possible. It's not popping
