Rough idle ,stalls when 1st start
a rough idle when the car is first started.
check engine light reads 2ND cyleder
misfire. changed oxygen sensors , coil,
added 2 bottles of dry gas, cleaned
injectors, new plugs. Used to idle fine after
it warms up but now it's getting worse.
Check engine light not coming on so I can't
I think that you should do a compression test, to make sure there's nothing more serious going on first. If compression is OK, move the spark plug and coil from the misfiring cylinder to another cylinder and see if that "moves" the miss to that cylinder. If it does, you have a bad coil or plug. If it doesn't, carefully inspect for broken wiring. if it's not too difficult, move that injector to another cylinder to make sure whether its the cause or not. Cleaning the injectors may or may not fix them.
did you ever get this fixed. I have same issue
I ran it like that for a very long time then I just put in a used motor from Japan didn't want to go ahead and fix the compression that was off on cylinder number 2 should have done that a long time ago cost me about a thousand for the motorh500 andput in
holy heck! new motor.. my element for two years with do this every day. start up. if I do not let it run for ten minutes to let it warm up then it will stall anywhere between 5 - 10 times every time I come to a stop. if its warmed up it works perfect.. does that sound similar
cold didn't help when i was in northern states but it did not stall just ran rough at stops and idle. I actually had to start putting it in neutral at stops. Whats the computer reading??
