Rough idle and car doesn't exhelarate good

Between ! RPM and 2 RPM, the car has a rough idle and it requires more gas to get it to drive. Very slow start than it picks up. Some times it drives okay{ especially when I take off after I crank it up ), than it struggles.

Sounds like an air intake problem, when u first crank a car it running in a choked state so until the engine warms up there is actually little air being up into the system.. Now once it warms up, this is when it begins to get more air into the system and I'm thinking when your problems arise.. Cheapest/Easiset things first: 1. Change your air filter 2. Clean all sensors between the filter and the throttle body, then the throttle body itself.. 3. Run a (pour-in-tank)system cleaner thru your gas tank and take a long trip at sustained a sustained feed. Do this when you plan on doing a road trip and can drive out at least 3/4 of the tank at one time.. Hope this helps you..

4.9 litre ?? you having a laugh its a 10ton truck engine not a pick up -global warming machine,remove the pump/sender unit and check the gauze filter also look inside tank for a something floating around ,i think the idles is not a related problem to the vehicle losing power but their is a possibility you could have a problem with the little vac operated thing on the fuel injector line that allows the fuel through only when the engine is running

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?

Rough idle after engine is warm


Dirty air filter, dirty throttle body...try 2 bottles of gas line fuel injector cleaner...has your car been parked for awhile? Heet gas additive will work on any low gas tank sludge that you may have. Hope this helps.

If the idle speed is normal until you shift into a gear, the idle air control valve is probably raising the idle speed. Try unplugging the iac motor at idle then shift into drive.
If the IAC is raising the RPM the computer controls it, so for some reason the computer thinks the RPM needs to go up. I am assuming you do not have a check engine light on or you would have checked for trouble codes.
Just for the record, I am showing the same IAC for both transmissions on a 2.0 engine code 3.
Is it possible the battery was disconnected and the learn process needs to be done for the computer to know where normal idle speed is ?

I added fuel additive to my fuel had timing chain done 2 days ago now It won't idle it dies and runs real rough at high RPM's. If you put it into drive gear kills motor.


Sounds like a spark plug or wire issue. Anytime the vehicle starts to skip, die, or (run rough) its usually these minor things. However if that does not help, start looking into your fuel system. Always try cheapest first. Plugs and Wires....Good luck...

First change the belt driving the compressor. Belt slippage is the number one cause of low cooing at idle or slow speeds (if the charge is OK)

Acceleration won't go past 3000 PRM at idle


The car does have a maf, but it is rarely the cause of rough idle. Rough idle is usually caused by vacuum leak, pvc issues, or idle air control valve. What does it do, specifically, and is the engine light on?

1993 3.4l camaro Idles fine when first started. After a few seconds it idles rough and rpm drops. No power when driving. RPM will not go above 3000 even if floored when driving.


there are a few reasons to ur problems 1st check and or replace fuel filter -check and or service egr valve -carbon usually builds up in and around valve causing rough idle -no power and can cause non start problem ---also air filter - fuel pump-bad gas -timing skip-pcv valve-catalytic converter clogging these are some of the problems usually one of the first 2 is the problem good luck

Idles rough and rpm vary and almost dies


If you are stopped and it's doing this, it'll most likely be the Idle Air Control Valve. If it does this while you are driving, it sounds like it's either not firing correctly or it may be a fuel issue - example - fuel pump, fuel filter, clogged injector, or just a little bad gas in your tank. Hope this helps.
