I'm having the same problem please help


I problem has gotten worse since replacing coil pack I would think you have a miss firing spark plug or a bad spark plug wire. When was last time you had a tune up ?


firebird338 I hav echanged spark plugs coil pack fuel pump wire plugs and still nothing the only ting I did change was the cam senor and the crank sensor and im waiting for the parts to arrived please help


Clean throttle body and clean or replace ( IAC ) Idle Air Control valve add Lucas Injector Cleaner to gas tank take vehicle out on road and hit the passing gear a few times this will help to clean out the varnish and gum and carbon build up in engine. Be careful no speeding ticket.
