rough idle

  1. Engine stalls in the mornings?

    First time posting something. Awesome site by the way. my 2.9 stalls in the morning. I start it and it dies 10-20 seconds after, doing this 2 or 3 times and it idles fine afterwards. I can smell gas like its being flooded or something. I suspect it has to be a map sensor or air temperature...
  2. 91 ranger ROUGH/DYING idle, STRONG gas smell under hood, gas dripping from headers

    91 ford ranger 2.9 The other day on a 3 hour road trip the check engine light came on for 15 minutes, and then shut off for the rest of the trip. While driving the other night it came back on; no real loss of power just seemed to be a slight "caming" effect at idle. I ran the obd1 self test...

  4. Need B2500 Engine Specs

    Hello Everyone, I'm trying to diagnose a rough idle condition on my dad's 1999 Mazda, B2500. It's a 2.5L, inline 4 cylinder. This truck will start with no problem, but will begin to idle poorly after 20-30 seconds. It will also stall if the throttle is slammed shut. Very weak power overall...

    Seriously confused by 94 Explorer

    Well a couple months back i posted about a shuddering problem my truck was having. A lot of people jumped and said it was clutch, but it ended up the clutch is just dandy :D Since then the truck has gotten new plugs, wires, coil pack, intake boot, thermostat, fuel filter, and had the intake and...
  7. Intake Manifold Gasket

    Within the next day or so, I'll be replacing the intake manifold gasket. The truck had been running poorly for a while; after a few hundred miles of horrible idle, the hissing noise and a can of carb cleaner pinpointed the problem. I'd already replaced fuel filter, air filter, pcv valve, and a...

    97 2.3 rough idle

    After cleaning the MAF, IAC, installing a new air filter, fuel filter, installing a few new vacuum hoses I still had a rough idle. I even got some seafoam and ran in through the brake booster hose and in the fuel tank but still had that erratic idle. I planned on doing new plugs and wires but...

    Rough Idle problem fixed.....I hope.

    So a few weeks now my truck has randomly given a rough idle when I am stopped and in neutral. I attributed it to a gas station that I had been getting gas at for the last few weeks. I removed and cleaned the MAF & IAC. I installed a new air filter & fuel filter, but the problem persisted. I did...

    Hello from South Jersey

    I just bought a Ranger about 4 months ago to use for work. It is a 97 XLT with 2.3L, 5 Speed and 2WD. The truck looked ok and ran good so I bought it, but what I did not figure on was how addicting this little truck has become! The truck was dirty when I got it. I cleaned the interior very...

    84 Bronco 2 Flooding

    I posted this once before but have some better information now. My bronco seems to run fine for about 30 seconds up to 2 minutes and then the idle gets super rough. About 15 seconds after that it stalls out and won't start for about 20 minutes. What could all of a sudden make a good running 2.8...
