2000 chevy prizm won't stay running in Park, reverse or drive
My 2000 Chevrolet Prizm runs really rough, I
receantly changed the plugs, and found oil on the
topside of the #3 plug. It will not stay running
unless I keep my foot on the gas, but only while
parked. If I shift to any other gear, it bogs down
and dies. Any suggestions?
I have to ask, how long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader. Your local autostore should have one. Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, that is part of a tune-up. Try cleaning the throttle body and idle air system, see if it helps? There could be other issues?
I just wanted to add, a rough idle could be caused by a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum leak, something of that nature.
I'm having the same issues
