I am having this problem right now as well. I had a rough idle problem at first, and realized my coolant was very low, filling it fixed the first problem, so be sure your fluids are topped off

I replaced the MAP sensor AND the MAF sensor. the car now has a rough idle. did those replacements cause the rough idle?


Did you disconnect the battery negative cable for 5 minutes after the parts were replaced? If not do so then drive it at least 20 miles in varying conditions of idle cruise and so on. See if that helps the rough idle. also rerun the fault code test and see if any codes reappear, I have a feeling you did not fix the problem but just threw parts at it.

Rough idle, rough in drive


Is the check engine light on ?
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?
You could have one bad spark plug even with only 30k on it.
Problem could also be a dirty injector.

2000 ford expedition ,,rough idle in park..rough idle in drive,, sometimes dies..rpm's in drive at idle 400...replaced iac


Check the fuel pressure at the rail assembly, there should be a min of 40 lbs at the rails. Do you have any loss of power under a load? You may have an issue with your o2 sensor that is causing the ecm to send an improper signal to the engine ign/fuel map.

1998 Ford Contour rough idle when i turn my air conditioning on


Rough idleing, especialy when the air condition is on, is really quite normal for old cars. I drive a 96 corolla and when the airconditioner is turned on, the car will make a deep whining noise. It should stop when shifted into drive(automatic) or gear(manual) in most cases, it is not a serious problem. However, if you feel the idle is too rough, i would recommend fuel additives designed for highmilage cars. I use fuel injector cleaner. after many uses, my rough idle ended. If after trying this, you find the idle to still be to high or rough, have a talk with your local mechanic. Hope this helps

your probably feeling a rough idle of the engine. need a tune up?

in park the engine is not loaded down, just idling at a low rpm=rough
in drive with brake on you have put some load on motor also at low rpm=rough
in drive on the road engine is at higher rpm, = smoother

generally 4 cylinder motors idle a bit rough, especially if one spark plug is not firing right or fouled or one bad spark plug wire. tune up may fix it. if it is not stumbling real bad or stalling then you can live with it.
